SP2 is self-indulgent too, but not good self-indulgence; like when you shove four bags of crystal meth up your ass and snort coke while engaged in an orgy with under-age transvestites in a seedy motel as your harlem of wives videotape for posterity and pop poppers, not knowing that the cops are parked in the driveway and can see exactly what's going on through the flimsy curtains, leading to your arrest and eventual sexual violation in the slammer at the hands of a group of tattooed, homosexual Venezuelan gang members who simply hate sissy boys and, I quote,"don't take no shit".

But why did Billy pander to the masses and reunite the old guard? Because he has no dignity (or money left, allegedly). He must have no confidence in his music anymore.
