Since my brother just recently wrote about the Bee Gees and Rolling Stone reported that Billy Corgan is working on a memoir, I thought this would be the perfect entry for today.
This video features an acoustic version of “To Love Somebody” with Billy playing to a crowd of people. I think they saw him on the street and one of them had a guitar and asked him to play. So awesome.
He recorded this song on his 2005 album, The Future Embrace. To my surprise, some websites have stated that Robert Smith from The Cure (one of my other favorite people!) did some of the backing vocals. Small world!
It was originally released by the Bee Gees in July of 1967.
