Who? Played with who? I am sure Billboard and Variety will publish special editions. The entire music world is surely shaken to its core.

@7:27-You are a pants-shitting geezer who hasn't listened to music since Benny Goodman. Very soon you will be just as dead, and the world will shrug. It will be as if you never were. You will be forgotten. Prepare for your eternal rest geezer...it's coming sooner than you think. You're outta time and you failed to matter.

Absolutely nobody I know of has heard of these musicians you mention in your post, TKC.

^^Well who gives a fuck if you have heard off them or haven't? This blog was not written for personally you dumbass! You don't have to respond to a post if you have nothing to say shitbird, and you don't. So maybe instead of posting drivel like this, how about you just shut the fuck off and ghost away! How about that!

Billy was a great drummer and a good friend. I'll miss him and the KC music scene will too. Cheers Billy!

Billy added to the local music scene and played drums like I wish I could. Kansas City is full of some really great musicians that many have not possibly heard of but it doesn't mean they are not great at what they do.


I agree with 9:46 100%

When KC gets someone renowned for playing the mouth harp (that doesn't work at the Star) then you have something.
