Billy Corgan Net Worth: Billy Corgan is an American musician, producer, lyricist, writer and poet who has a net worth of $50 million dollars. A singer-songwriter, musician, author, and producer, Billy Corgan co-founded the group, Smashing Pumpkins, in the late 80's. The band became hugely successful and toured extensively, but fell apart multiple times due to inter-band tensions and drug issues. Currently, though the band is still touring, Billy Corgan is the only remaining original member in the group.

Born William Patrick Corgan, Jr. on March 17, 1967, in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, he established himself as an influential figure on the Alternative rock scene, especially as a frontman and sole permanent member of Smashing Pumpkins. Ever since the rock band was created in 1988, Corgan was the one to pave the band's direction through his confessional lyrics, grandiose production values and virtuosic musical interplay. Under his guidance, the Smashing Pumpkins had transformed themselves into a major label success in less than three years. To date, they have released nine studio albums and have sold over 30 million records worldwide. Their work was awarded with numerous accolades, ranging from music giants MTV to the world-respected Grammys to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Although the line-up has changed several times since Smashing Pumpkins' formation, Corgan has never ceased to record and tour recruiting new bandmates every now and then. The latest effort of the combo is the studio album Oceania in 2012. Being chart-toppers in the 1990s, the Smashing Pumpkins owe their success to the dense, layered sound they created along with their dynamic songwriting, alternately angst-ridden and dreamy.
