In a candid new interview, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan reveals he considered suicide on several occasions.

The singer opened up to Carson Daly on his late-night show “Last Call” and explained the comments he recently made to Britain’s NME magazine.

Corgan revealed, “I almost killed myself about three, four, seven times. I literally started planning my death and what I would leave behind, and what I was gonna write… three or four times in my life.

“What I finally realized, at least on the back end of this, is that God, at least as I understand God, was there all along. Once I was able to process my reality in that way, I no longer felt like a victim.”

In his interview with NME, Billy Corgan said he thought about killing himself while recording his 1993 album “Siamese Dream,” stating, “I was suicidal, and I’d been plotting my own death for about two months… If you’ve ever read anything about the warning signs of suicide one of them is you give away all your stuff, and I’d given away all my stuff. I gave away all my records, I started giving away my guitars.

“I was fantasizing about my own death, I started thinking what my funeral would be like and what music would be played, I was at that level of insanity.”
