On something of vastly more importance than which band will be remembered, congratulations on a hard won journey! What you're doing is not easy but it is definitely something you should be proud of. Keep on keepin' on!

Prickly, but also a genius. If you are a fan, you know Billy by now. His public persona is probably very different than his private one. I will always buy his stuff.
