Billy Corgan is prepared for the Smashing Pumpkins to continue on without him in the future, telling the Daily Beast that he's prepared if the band decides to move on with a different lineup.

He stated that he goes back and forth on whether to keep making music with the band or not.

"I have to be there. But maybe there comes a point like KISS where KISS is going to continue on without Gene [Simmons] and Paul [Stanley]," he said. "Maybe there'll come a point in Smashing Pumpkins history where this band will continue on without me. I'll just write songs."

Corgan added that the Smashing Pumpkins moniker "means more than who's in it," saying that he understands "when people say, 'You shouldn't be touring under the name."
