also i love how in the same article bill says very clearly that he knew it would come back to him eventually. and then he also says something to the tune of, "if you had told me that 27 years later i'd still be in band with jim and james, and that i'd have this guitar back, i wouldn't have believed you on either account."

what a bozo

I bet it would get in the SP news cycle - shaming him to be generous.
I would think that even if she turned down the money, he would be rock star enough to give it to her anyways. You know, to be cool and likable?

...
But instead he will just add a Gish strat color vinyl to the SAOSB inventory.

Bolly thinks the world owes him his guitar. This lady just lost the $200 on top of losing its true market value. His signatures are about as valuable as a signed Screech poster.

If I had 50 mill in the bank and someone found my long lost stolen guitar after 30 years I'd cut the check for 10 grand regardless of whether she wanted it or not.

Beth James revenge on Corgan, giving instead himself the luxury of a hot tub:





So now we heared for the first time, that Jimmy himself had only borrowed the Strat from a friend which didn't hinder him to sell it to Billy.

Shouldn't Jimmy's friend get his guitar back now?

Shouldn't Jimmy give his friend at least the money he earned?

The lesson we learned from this is that both -Billy and Jimmy- are jerks.


And hasn't Billy also "borrowed" a bass guitar from D'arcy since twenty years...?

And made money, selling instruments, by mentioning her having played them:




While bitching on her, she couldn't play her instrument well enough...

Alright, I did it. As suggested by NovaFritz, I made a GoFundMe for Beth on behalf of Netphoria.

Here's the link:

https://www.gofundme.com/for-beth-th...gan039s-guitar

I set it at $5,000, which is way less than the $20,000 offered by Billy. But maybe he can chip in the rest.

I'll post the link in its own thread, and share it with a few sources. Feel free to share it around.

Ha.

I chipped in $10. If my $10 is the only thing that gets to her, I guess it's $10 that she wasn't getting already.

"She didn't want anything"?

Well, Billy. When someone returns a milestone guitar you've searched decades for, you give them a fucking reward whether they want it or not.

“She didn’t want anything” is Billy-speak for “I pretty much made her so uncomfortable that she wouldn’t dare ask for a reward and just told me it was fine so I would leave her alone. All is well. Love and peace.”

So he just took the guitar from some lady who rightly bought it and gave her no reimbursement at all?

If the dude carried himself with any grace, he would've presented her with one of his signature electric guitars and signed it for her.

Seems like it would've been the most sensible of gestures.
