I was lucky enough to meet Billy and his wife several years ago when he performed at Blackpool Hilton and then in Manchester after their brief Eurotour They both blew me away with their engagement and how friendly they were I remember clearly Billy at my trade stand in Blackpool He said “ Chris how do you deal with those goddam run arounds on the highway He meant the roundabouts on the uk roads I was humbled to chat to him! Musical memories that have enriched my life. Amazing!!!

Saw BP sing “Me & Mrs Jones” at the reception after the Sigma Sound historic marker dedication. Still a life highlight for me. πŸ™‚

Happy Heavenly Birthday πŸ™πŸŽΆπŸ™
