Im not going to say you're an idiot or anything, you just haven't done your research; Billy Corgan was their lead guitarist.

I think you missed the guitar part when he goes into "even though I know", and I think your chorus is wrong. Not the part the Billy plays, the part James plays. Just thought I'd comment.
