Anyone here attend Billy's Temple Sessions back on 2004? They were fan-invited recording sessions at an art studio on the west side of Chicago for what was supposed to be an album and DVD of Chicago-based folk/acoustic music.

To this day I hope to see something come out, but I'm not overly optomistic....

Would you let Billy take a leak on you for a leak of these sessions?

wasn't that April 2005?

And just add it to the list of DVD's that we won't ever see.

My wife, who is also a big SP fan (she and I started dating as a result of a conversatoin about TTEOR and we attended their original last show at the Metro the week before we got married) jokes that I would take it up the can from him to hang out for a weekend with him.

I'm not sure that I would take it that far, nor do I think I'd take a golden shower. I have some pictures from the event (the Temple session, that is), and that might be enough..

You?

I wish he would release it, but I think the chance of us seeing it any time soon has gone from slim to nil now that the pumpkins are back in the spotlight.

Nope. April of 2004. I still have some of the emails from the other people that attended my session.

And agreed on the DVD...a guy can hope, though..

The map to the place referred to it as the Temple Sessions...not to say that it wasn't also referred to as the Studio Sessions as well.

What day did you go itoolio?

Tuesday the 13th. It was pretty packed, and there was a kid (16 maybe) who drove all the way from Massachusetts (I beleive it was Massachusetts, but it may have been another east coast state) who had to leave the sessoins because he had a bad cough which kept ruining some of the takes. Felt bad for the kid, but it was understandable.

You?

Such a difficult questions to tackle...i guess I am an untroo fan as well. Perhaps I should have taken to "those in glass houses shouldn't cast stones" advice to heart.

My brother went to the Wednesday session and a friend of mine went to the Thursday session. However, neither of them are married.

It was a hell of an experience, though, eh?

Those in glass houses shouldn't take a dick up their ass...

What if you were drunk/stoned. Would you do it then?

I wish Billy would go down the NIN route with this stuff and just let it out for the fans on The Pirate Bay or whatever, Metro show too. It's never going to come out otherwise.

I was at the same one. If I remember correctly, he stayed until the end to get his pic taken with The Bill. Billy apologised and hoped he understood... that would have fucking sucked. That day was awesome!

Yeah..he did stay.

The one thing I was looking forward to was the "Ask Billy" section where they gave us the opportunity to ask him a question via video. He would then pick the good ones and answer them on the DVD.

Some guy (hope it wasn't you) asked him what shampoo he used. He was of course bald by that time. I didn't think that would be one that he picked..
