A friend of mine just called from the NAMM show at the Anaheim convention center and said that Billy's going to be signing autographs at one this afternoon. My friend doesn't have access to the show so BC is in some free hall. He said the line is very long.

Just thought I'd share for those of you who want to know where BC is every waking moment of his life!

My buddy just called back with more info...

Corgan is at a Fender booth signing autographs and there's a huge crowd to see him. There is a video crew taping and talking to the people in line and you now need a pass to get into the area where BC is signing.

Yamaha is a huge part of the NAMM show and they have their own hall from what I've been told. I wonder if JC is there as well...

Tell your Dad that if he'll grab BC's autograph for me I'll get him and two of his friends into Disneyland while he's in town.

He designs keyboards for some Korean company. He didn't see Corgan anywhere hanging out, BTW. I should have told him the big autograph line was for Keith Emerson or something... he would have totally waited for that

but dont mention any of the changes. i realize it was discussed at the show, but to put that on their website is kind of lacking.

is the mistle on that forum the same one here? because he said this:

other people in his posse had the same kind. i think its just what they give him. he was drinking ice mountain when i saw him.





and i wondered if she was talking about the siamese dream girls. i heard him say something about the rollingstones or whatever and that was it. crazy if thats what that was about. i was wondering why no one ever got back to them about that.

It depends on where you get it, at the store it's not too bad for it's size same as Fiji, Sole, Saratoga, Aqua Pana(pelligrino) etc.. At clubs they jack the prices up so much.. normally it varies from $6-$10 depending on the blub, well in Boston anyway.. I am sure it's similar other places. It's good water though.. Norwegian

He started to put her number in his phone, but then said someone else would get it for him? (i think? I wish I could just watch the damn thing, but I'm sure I'd get busted if I tried).
I didn't get the impression that he was trying to get rid of her; he seemed genuinely interested as far as i could tell.
