Trust Youtube to be the bearer of rather embarassing 23 year old footage of the Smashing Pumpkins frontman. Gangly 18 year old Corgan, mulleted and primed for awkward rocking looks a bit embarassed by the rest of the band, Hexen but once his guitar solo kicks in he displays Guitar Hero-esque shreds.
Watch him shred unaccompanied after the jump.
