Billy Corgan’s big hope in life is to one day write songs for musicals. The Smashing Pumpkins frontman apparently let this information slip to The New York Post on Sunday, when he attended a production of ‘Godspell’ in New York “disguised in a lumberjack hat”.

He was quoted by the newspaper as saying: “I want to be a better songwriter before I try Broadway and I wouldn’t allow one of my old songs [to be used]. If I do Broadway, I’m not coming to write three-chord rock songs”.
