Billy Corgan has never heard of Record Store Day

I know that you’re probably all sick of hearing about non-indie-relevant Billy Corgan (I know am, I don’t even like Smashing Pumpkins), but I happened across this hilarious Billy Corgan moment, and had to share it.

Apparently Corgan was out record shopping on Saturday, but didn’t know it was Record Store Day AND had never even heard of Record Store Day.  Now remember, this is the guy lobbying for musicians’ rights at the highest level; by defending such “artist empowering” things as the Live Nation/Ticketmaster merger… right.

My guess is that Vintage Vinyl was one of the many independent records stores left out of the “special” version of the last Pumpkins’ LP, ha!
