LOL yeah.

"I'm fine with Billy shittalking everyone he's ever worked with and hanging out with Alex Jones and defending Trump and making one shitty album after another but I simply DRAW THE LINE at him wearing a skirt! I'm WAY too straight to listen to a band that does that kinda stuff! I'm so heterosexual that my Kinsey Scale rating is -20!"

Sometimes, he's wearing 1/2 a skirt. Does that make you feel better?

I'll rephrase - I wish billy wasn't wearing THAT skirt.

I've nothing against people wearing skirts. I agree that them wearing skirts in the 90s was cool - others did it too, Cobain, Dando, et al. It was a 90s thing for the most part, no?

Haha do you remember that old Jimmy the Cab Driver video on MTV where he's talking to a guy in the back seat and tells him that he reminds him of "the cute gal hitchhiking in the Smashing Pumpkins video"?

I wish Bill could/would put the energy he uses when he solos into singing and performing as well. His guitar work still sounds really passionate, but the other aspects of his performance seem so bored

don't know if i'd simply call it a "90s thing" but when bill wore skirts back then it was more of an androgynous thing - now it's more of a "i'm a HOLY BEING so allow me to trot around in my LORD-LIKE ATTIRE"

I like to think he thinks he's a futuristic Greek god. Especially in that gold one at a recent show.

I'd need a long arm his skirts tend to go down to the floor. It wouldn't give me much of a buzz but I'd do it for a dare. Give his cock a good yank.

Gods don't have cocks

They have little portals to heaven. You'd be sent straight to heaven via the bald lord's "landing zone"

Dunno, when i saw em a few days ago he seemed to be belting it pretty meaningfully. Definitely a step up from the plainsong i saw in 2016.

Nothing like 90s bill but gosh damn for a mentally ill oldster hes holding up prettt fine when it comes to live performance, if u ask me

IMO his energy is better on this tour but it's not consistent. He had way more energy in 07/08 though

Guys like Corgan, Weiland and Billie Joe only wore dresses because they were copying Kurt and Kurt was god at the time.

That needs some professional research:

Who of the legendary men started wearing women skirts in Alternative Music?

Which reasons did they indicate?

And who looked best in it...?



Hang out again, belly!
