$10 I met Billy back in 2005 at 318! He was very kind and generous to me, as I was new to live performance. He let me open for his band many times and always helped me out with advice. He was my role model and my supporter. Too cool! I asked if I could share this show with him and, of course, still the generous man he is, he said yes! This is gonna be awesome!
