Default Best solo I've ever heard Billy play (Starla live 1994)





Shoutout to Jimmy for killing it as well (as always)

Yeah same. The XYU performance in Germany 1996 was mindblowing. Anyone else notice he always does a slamming motion with his guitar after each song during live shows? I don’t think he does it on songs like Disarm but on any song where he rocks out even a little he does it. It’s at the end of this video too. I just have noticed he constantly does it (not sure if he still does I don’t watch SP2 shows). I’ve heard Billy has OCD (I do too tbh) so I wonder if that’s why he does it.

I feel like the lies have been burned off of my soul after watching that.

There is no denying he was absolutely brilliant in his prime.

His tone is amazing here. I don't know what he was using during this era, but it's lightyears ahead of his current live tone. That video he did with the Helix? Yikes.

So clean. The man makes it look so effortless, too. Great share.
