Default Is this Billy at 100% of his power?




I enjoy shitting on the Bald Lord as much as the next Netphorian, but sometimes I have to take time to appreciate the man whose brilliant music got me so obsessed with the band that I spend my time coming up with feces related versions of his songs simply because I am distraught over him ruining something truly magical (that he admittedly was the main creative force behind). Synched up. Watch from where I marked it to the end please and thank you. I'm sure most if not all of you have seen it already, but I love this performance so much I wanted to share it anyways.

Fair enough. Honestly, even in the 90s Billy did things that irritate and upset me, but he was putting out truly incredible and unique music at the same time. Not so much now.

Billy at his full power=everything post-2000 where he is calling all the shots and living in a bubble.

The great Billy of the 90s=Billy + great producers, bandmates with great taste who influence his decisions, the competition from the great bands of the 90s influencing him, etc.

Billy’s great mistake has been not realizing that at least half of his success had to do with the world spawned and sustained him. Left to his own devices, he sucks. Widow wake his mind!
