BILLY CORGAN PARTS WAYS WITH HIS MADAME ZUZU’S TEAHOUSE BUSINESS PARTNER
From The Chicago Tribune‘s new interview with Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan:
For reasons Corgan declines to get into, he recently parted company with his business partner. His hopes of drawing performers and presenters through open submissions haven’t panned out.
The occasional musical set by Corgan, who performed as part of the salon’s opening festivities, won’t hurt Madame ZuZu’s fortunes. But he knows the salon’s success will depend more on the clientele’s participation. “I don’t want me to be the driver,” he says. “That would be bad business.”
