Posted 22 June 2012 - 02:30 PM
Just got back from the Hollywood Penthouse Tower. Billy was wearing his personalized Nike shoes with a different color scheme. Bright gold on black. It was bloody awesome! I told him I loved the song Gossamer... Darren from 987 asked him about touring in South Africa in 2000 and he told us about how the Cab driver told him not to go to a specified island due to the drug lords there. Then at his hotel there were barbed wire all around the perimeter and they told him not to argue with anyone there since everyone carries a gun. He was at a restaurant there where a native was yelling the N word at them and telling them to go back to America for several minutes. They didn't respond. Then, the next day a celebrity (wife?) was murdered at that restaurant 24 hours later. There were lots of fun stories that were shared. ;)/> He was very sincere and honest!

Keep the stories coming, that is awesome!!!
I drank a few free Bud Light's there. So my story telling might be slightly different than the interview. So I'm going to present as if I'm Billy talking there now:
My Dad gave me only one guitar lesson. He would always roll some blunts while he was playing guitar, which might explain why I seemed baked while playing my music. --- I was at an Iron Maiden show in 1983 when all of a sudden my brother pulls on my shirt and says we have to go. Mom wants to go. I said no. But he kept tugging at me for us to go. So I left and I'm still mad about it. (laughs) --- My Dad lives in Florida. No plans to collaborate with him. He's retired from rock n roll. He likes to live vicariously through me. It's kind of weird.---
If I remember anything else, I'll reply in this topic.
