To date, there is no substantial new model to release an album outside the system and score big at radio. However, thanks to the Internet, Corgan points out, bands can really hit their niche and take changes again. "It's time to create a new system, but I don't know what that is yet."
Corgan says he's now in his third decade of public life, and the world has transformed itself into a tabloid culture. "For spirituality, as an artist, we can't look to rock 'n' roll anymore."
So he has turned to his music and his blog. His latest entry at Everything from Here to There states: "Being kind to yourself is one of the most revolutionary, anti-establishment things that you can do—that is, if you are included to not live life as if programmed to be somebody else's robot."
