Silly Billy: William Patrick Corgan has changed his name back to Billy again

William Patrick Corgan has changed his name back to Billy again

William, it was really nothing…

Honestly, keeping track of Wild Bill Corgan’s numerous name and band line-up changes is more work than an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. 

Rebranding as the very formal William Patrick Corgan for his latest solo album ‘Ogilala’, the Smashing Pumpkins frontman has now decided he’d rather be Billy after all! Phew! Got it.

Early this month Willy-C performed ‘The Spaniards’ on Corden. Buffalo Billy Goat’s Gruff also shared a virtual reality video for ‘Aeronaut’ recently.
