Billy Corgan Does Not Like Being Asked If Courtney Love Killed Kurt Cobain

Billy Corgan's Smashing Pumpkins are currently on tour, and at select stops the band is offering a VIP Q&A for fans with Corgan himself. Of course, the downside to giving fans unfettered access is that they often ask really weird questions.

And during the tour stop at Red Rocks in Colorado, one fan pushed things into uncomfortable territory by asking Corgan if he though his ex-girlfriend Courtney Love killed Kurt Cobain.

Actually, even as we watch Corgan grow immediately uncomfortable, we have to admit he deals with the insanity of the question in far more polite manner than was required of him. See for yourself below.

"Do you think Courtney killed Kurt?" A fan off-camera can be heard saying in the video.

"You're legitimately asking me this question here?" Corgan responds. "What does that have to do with me? We started talking about intra-band rivalry, and then we got to conspiracy."
