Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan praised Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl on Twitter recently. Corgan said, “Kurt opened the door for everyone, including SP.”
@DeadAsHellHP I don't disagree. Kurt opened the door for everyone, including SP

He also defended Dave Grohl when a fan ripped the Foo Fighters frontman. The fan said he ‘f**king hates’ Grohl when discussing an article on the top drummers of all time, and that ‘people lose credibility when they mention him.’
Corgan responded, “That I don’t agree with. Dave is an incredible musician.” In the past Corgan has made critical statements regarding Foo Fighters, but he has been far more positive recently, praising the band’s lasting power along with other 90’s acts like the Dave Matthews Band, and now calling Dave Grohl an incredible musician.
