Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes musician and singer-songwriter Billy Corgan for a remarkably candid and revealing exclusive interview.
Most widely known as the frontman and sole permanent member of the alternative rock band "The Smashing Pumpkins," Corgan shares his personal perspectives on politics, specifically the nation's current commander-in-chief, Barack Obama:
"Moral compass," says Corgan when asked what qualities he most values in a leader. "And that's where I'm disappointed in the president, is he ran on a moral compass agenda. But, what happened? I'm sure there's lots of good reasons, and I'm sure they'll roll somebody out to counter thoughts like that. But I don't see it."
As his bands ninth album, entitled "Oceania," is released this week, the Chicago native is becoming increasingly disheartened with the way his home country is viewed in other parts of the world:
"I've seen foreigners really shift on their view of America, and that's hard for me to take. I still believe in my country. I know that the working class of this country is what this country's really about. That's what I grew up in and those are my people."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening as the 45-year-old Corgan explains how his personal upbringing has influenced his political stance.
