Billy Corgan opened up about his suicidal feelings, admitting that at some points in his life he would literally plan his own death.
The Smashing Pumpkins singer came close to killing himself three or four times, but he believes that it was his faith in God which prevented him from doing so and got him through the difficult times.
While on TV show Last Call With Carson Daly, Corgan spoke out about his depressive episodes, saying: "I almost killed myself about three, four, seven times. I literally started planning my death and what I would leave behind, and what I was gonna write. Three or four times in my life.
"What I finally realised, at least on the back end of this, is that God, at least as I understand God, was there all along. Once I was able to process my reality in that way, I no longer felt like a victim."

This isn't the first time that Corgan has talked about his dark periods, previously saying that one of the worst times in his life was while he was working on the Siamese Dream album in 1993.
He explained: "I was suicidal, and I'd been plotting my own death for about two months.
"And if you've ever read anything about the warning signs of suicide one of them is you give away all your stuff, and I'd given away all my stuff, I gave away all my records, I started giving away my guitars.
"I was fantasising about my own death, I started thinking what my funeral would be like and what music would be played, I was at that level of insanity."
Earlier this month, Corgan was sued by his neighbour Eric Danes after claims that a 'shaky and dangerous' tree which fell in his yard could have killed Danes' pregnant wife.
