Smashing Pumpkins sue filmmaker

Billy Corgan of Chicago’s Smashing Pumpkins is suing a fellow Illinois filmmaker.

The frontman is claiming that Lester Cohn of Pure DV Productions’ work was sub-par and that he held back video footage owed to him unless he was paid more money.

Corgan is seeking over $100,000 in damages for work that he claimed to be “completely unsatisfactory and not completed in a professional, workmanlike manner in accordance with the standards of a music filmmaker.
