This one might be my favourite, now.

Still really enjoying these.

Really shocked by how many people are shitting on his piano playing. Obviously he's not trained, his method is simple, but man I fucking love it. the MCIS theme will always be in my top 10 songs that Billy wrote. this is more of the same! really loving these piano arrangements compared to the acoustic guitar performances. Can't wait to see him next month. Hoping against hope he plays MCIS at these shows.

it is annoying how a home video from 1995 with him wearing a sweater and fucking around is more captivating than his new single

It's a beautiful tune but those surely aren't piano skills, dear friends.

i could learn to play that.

It occured to me while I was watching these that THIS is what his life used to be like:



Must be a mindfuck to go from that to playing whatever his current songs are in a tee shop for only a handful of people who bother to show up. It's sorta amazing he's even somewhat level-headed as he appears to be.

yeah obviously it's a mindfuck but damn you can't live at the speed of light forever. he's 50, he's a new father, he owns a teashop where he can go play in a relaxed environment, stream that shit over the internet, record a solo album with Rick Rubin, do small theater tours. he definitely seems happier & more at peace since becoming a father. *and* reconnecting with James and D'arcy!
