"...be here now, live in the present. There truly is no past (but that which lives in your mind), and the future too is but a dream. So kindly, truly, embrace the life you are living TODAY Which reminds me of a song that I also played bass on..."

I'd love to be wrong but to me this reads as: She's not coming back, everything can't be the way it was, live in the present and move on. This whole paragraph was him confirming that no bass player's been decided on yet or they're not ready to say who is.

Bringing up James playing bass on Machina is also noteworthy as he's downplaying D'Arcy's importance for recording sessions.

What is there for Billy to gain with all this cryptic bullshit? He's just making it worse for when it's inevitably revealed that D'arcy is being replaced with a forgettable hired hand for the upcoming shows.

Maybe she got her wires crossed. Maybe they used a "different bass player" for the demo sessions, with a view to getting her in to record (if even nominally) once the songs had been put together, or given a chance for her to learn them.

Maybe D'Arcy will be involved after all. Maybe it's just one big tease before the big reveal.
If that's the case, then why were no photos leaked with her in the photoshoot? Or, are the leaked photos part of the whole set up?

Billy put out a solo album which is inoffensive to forgettable depending who you ask. There was also a live recorded session and an arthouse film directed by Linda Strawberry.
New SP lineup is Billy, James, Jimmy and Jeff. D'Arcy seems to be out.
Recording sessions in progress, up to 26 tracks in the works. Rick Rubin producing.
Bill engages in alternative medicine, IV therapy and cupping sessions.
There is still no Machina reissue
Jimmy's cats look like Adam Driver

I don't know, but one of the leaked photos had no Jeff in it, so what does that mean?

"williampcorgan
What a weekend! Saturday, I was high in the hills of Topanga, overlooking the ocean on a beautiful sunny day, and according to some reports (based on photos taken or leaked) I am now a bassist. I mean, yes, I have played bass on many of your fave songs but I'm not sure I can play bass AND sing at the same time? But perhaps I can try *someday*.

Other reports have @jjjschroeder (who just celebrated a birthday) as a budding bassist. Which is interesting, because though Jeff doesn't mind plucking at 4 strings if needed I know he would much prefer the dulcet tones of 6 (but I have heard him confess that 7 strings is just 'too much')

@jamesihaofficial on the other hand, well, I haven't seen him pick up a bass since Machina (which he played a fair share on, despite reports claiming a certain 'flaxen Saxxon' did; and as you know with much that is written is patently f-a-l-s-e).

Which brings me back to my time in the hills of Topanga, dressed in a long coat, staring out into the ocean dreaming of a future not yet realized. Wisdom here dictates that I share something I have said many times as of late, which is: be here now, live in the present. There truly is no past (but that which lives in your mind), and the future too is but a dream. So kindly, truly, embrace the life you are living TODAY Which reminds me of a song that I also played bass on...

BILLY is not joking about D'ARCY as "flaxon Saxxon" and about her involvement even at MACHINA...? And "fair" at "fair share" could also mean "blonde"?

JEFF maybe can't be seen because he is hidden by the guy with the reflector shield. But there's another shadow right beside the one of JAMES.

"Flaxen":

adjective


of flax.

(especially of hair) of the pale yellow color of dressed flax.
"her long flaxen hair"

He's just referring to D'Arcy's hair.

And, well...up until now it was assumed that what, she played a little bass on MI and none of MII, IIRC? Wouldn't be surprised if not even that much occurred.

In early 1999 D'ARCY was already more interested to hang out in L.A. and trying to start an acting career. So JAMES played her parts when she was missing...

Billy started talking to D'arcy again, and for a while, talked about how she was a vital part of the band and a necessary part of the reunion.

As of today, with this Instagram post, he's backslid to "I really did more than she ever did."

In that last post Billy is clearly mocking Darcy (flaxen Saxon) and implying that her past contributions were less than thought of by fans. Also did you notice how he uses unecessary adjectives to try to sound smart! Like dulcet.

dipshit douche.

hilarious he's now willing to give james credit again for his contributions but now that darcy is out of the picture again he has no problem knocking down her role. I assume he's irritated with the fans that are irritated with her absence, and oh boy it's like 2007/2008 all over again.

don't piss off james, billy. please. try to keep this going.

It takes a lot of effort to get upset about D'arcy not being involved.

And for Billy to be all passive aggressive is really small.

That's interesting though. You commonly follow that up with "you just might get it".

What on earth is Billy doing? Burning more bridges. Just when I was beginning to except the fact that D'arcy wouldn't be in the reunion, he has to go and make an ass of himself and cryptically bash her.

I got my hopes up for a while there, but I just realized: Billy hasn't changed one bit. He's made garbage music and been a complete dick since Adore. This new album is going to suck and the band will fragment again.

I don’t think he’s being too disrespectful to D’arcy, but a shame for those hoping for her return.

Iha better not be relegated to bass next to Jeff. That would be bullshit given he’s already missed the writing process (apparently).

Also Billy misusing the word ‘patently’ - why would it be patently obvious that a member other than the bassist played bass in SP recording sessions 20 years ago? Douche.

'flaxen Saxxon'

Are you kidding me?

I had actually just assumed Billy played bass for Machina. But D’arcy wrote the parts, right?
