Former Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is still smarting after
losing a closely fought table tennis battle with legendary singer ROBERT
The bald rocker mistakenly accepted a match against THE CURE star without
realising Smith's sporting pedigree - and had his "a** kicked".
The pair played while collaborating on Corgan's debut solo album
THEFUTUREEMBRACE at Smith's studio in England.
Corgan says, "He and his sister were 10-year-old champions of South
England or something. There's something about Robert looking as though he's
come in from a rainstorm and beating you like that.
"It burns. I'll have to play him at basketball or something."
