darcy not so much, but, you know, she's got some fight in her as well that could be considered abusive.
How the hell can D’Arcy be considered abusive? Because she’s sarcastic and makes a lot of snarky jokes?

Chemistry on stage or off? I think they sounded amazing live for the most part with those 4.

Off stage? D’Arcy and James were always close besides that brief period of time they were fighting around the time of SD being recorded. Billy referred to Jimmy as his best friend. It wasn’t that the band all hated each other so much as there were kinda two factions IMO. Billy and D’Arcy had a complicated relationship, as did Billy and James. I don’t know about Jimmy and D’Arcy or Jimmy and James.

Only to expand his mind, you plebeian. The great Billiam is always in complete control of himself.

This is so true.

I think his circus analogy "SAY YOU WANT TO GO TO THE CIRCUS" says it all. Billy thinks he took D'arcy and James to the circus, and they're ungrateful. Except his payment is probably something along the lines of following his lead.

honestly i feel like the most notable chemistry they had was visual - the way the 4 of them looked together in photographs, videos, on stage. Billy & Jimmy made it clear on several occasions they didn't respect the other two as musicians all that much

on the same token Billy also insinuated several times that all members of the band were vital to the output, even once making a comment along the lines of "my best songs have been written with these two in the room" - however much of that was led by Bill simply trying to keep the band together at the time vs. him actually believing it is up for debate, but if the past 15 years is anything to go by that certainly rings true after the fact

What times did Jimmy make it clear he didn’t respect the other two? Besides the time in the thread recently made.

why do i need more examples, lol? is saying "they looked like they could play, Billy & I could actually play" not enough? of course he wasn't going to make a remark like that while they were all in the band together

That’s so mean and untrue. I always thought Jimmy was super nice.

That would confirm my theory that the band was divided into two factions.

I feel like I’ve heard that D’Arcy and James never wanted Jimmy in the band? Maybe that’s why he resented them?

Asshole yes. Abusive, not really. Let me see that video of BC throwing things?

i know Billy loved to tell the "he drove a yellow car & wore different clothes than us" story all the time in interviews, but i seriously doubt the other two never got over that

What story is that?

The one where James and D didn’t think Billy should hire Jimmy?

i dunno he just always talked about how when they first met Jimmy their immediate thought was "this ain't the guy" because of his haircut/clothes/car/etc
