Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan, Shredding with Hexen in 1985

Thanks to this blog post, I stumbled upon these Billy Corgan gems, when he was in a band called -- wait for it -- Hexen. HEXEN. Killer, dude.

Someone watched a little too much MTV:

What's more amazing: The mullet? The high-tops? The shred-faces? "No 'Stairway,' dude!"

More sweet riffs can be found at this YouTube channel.
