Initially contemporaries of Nirvana and Pearl Jam, Billy Corgan’s Smashing Pumpkins outgrew and outlived the grunge scene with hugely acclaimed commercial triumphs like Siamese Dream, which legitimised heavy metal, and number one album Mellon Collie and The Infinite Sadness. Unlike many of their contemporaries, the Pumpkins were able to withstand internal problems and keep selling records, emerging as the longest-lasting and most successful alternative band of the early ’90s. Though drugs and other problems led to the band’s final demise, Corgan’s recent return with Zwan is a reminder of how awesome the Pumpkins were in their prime. Seattle-based Hanson has followed the band for years and this is the first in-depth biography of their rise and fall.

Amazingly this is the first serious biography of one of the most important, groundbreaking and successful bands of the 90s.Synopsis:
Emerging from the same subpop scene as Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkin's more varied sound, veering from thrash-grunge to melodic rock helped them sell millions of albums and achieve a US number 1 with Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. This is the first serious biography of the band.
