Also, I donít think Billy is as rich as many might think. Iím not saying heís broke, but given how many financial compromises heís made over the years, itís not been the moves of a guy with $10M+ in the bank or anything. Sold most of the guitars, amps and drum machines that made the classic albums, sold Today to be used in a Visa commercial, couldnít keep Zuzuís financially stable during the pandemic, can never seem to get the archive or vinyl or reissue projects off the ground claiming a bunch of nonsensical hiccups, did that Guitar Hero partnership claiming it was some master career move, etc. Iím sure he lives in a nice house, and his kid is financially set, but the guy has also been tied up in several lawsuits over the years, squabbles about royalty stuff, and claimed he had a difficult time finding financial backing for that last big tour they did.

Paying out of pocket for a lot of these things probably isnít possible for him any more.

Let's keep in mind that they don't measure you at the DMV; you just fill out your info on a form

I'm tempted to think she could have written 6'5'' and the DMV employee, whose soul had long ago been crushed by the uncaring gears of state-level bureaucracy, would type it into the system without blinking, but at the very least she could get away with adding three or four inches and pass a glance-test

P.S. Making "friends" with an obviously vulnerable celebrity is pretty fucking creepy

Not if it's for the ultimate, salvific goal of converting her to the Remnant church of Christ.

I think billy's never funded any of his music projects out of pocket.
unloading gear that's not being used is cathartic. new gear inspires.
dumping a coffeeshop that's a sinkhole
I don't see any problem with any of these things. He's said as much that he'd want the fans to support the archive projects financially before he gave it a go.
getting financial backing is just basic buisness not to ruin himself. He could easily just sit at home and let royalties come in. it's nice that he keeps trying to find something to sell (even if i'm not buying)

Yeah, I think as much as we dislike the new music Billy's probably proud at the fact that after losing as much money and standing he's been able to bring 'The Band' back to the level it's at now. I think he really was financially and creatively at a low point around Teargarden and it's just been his stubborn want to maintain his profile that he's been able to do that.
It's probably just a job and has little interest in music anymore.

Dude is super rich. Last couple tours alone must have made him millions. It’s just a job and a lucrative one.

Billy clearly is a guy with a ton of money. He spends it like a millionaire. Pretty much everything he does has to be a net loss, right?

I don't think he spends a penny of his money on his musical endeavours

Actually Zuzu's closed down in 2018, way before the pandemic... something to do with tenancy. He actually managed to reopen it in the middle of the pandemic, despite the restrictions, late 2020.

Avery is not the only one that managed to connect with Darcy on Facebook. A few other people reported that they spoke for months and that she was so unstable they sometimes doubted it was really her.

This is true. I had fans on the secret SP group (Not SM, even more exclusive!) reach out to Billy and Co (LS). They didn't think it was her, but three major things happened that proved it was actually her.

1, she used the same Facebook account to conduct those AltNat interviews in 2018.
2, she shared some super rare 1999 SP era pictures of herself that cannot be traced.
3, after her 2018 meltdown Billy's buddy Mancow released a picture from the same 99 era that shows her in a VERY compromised position.

I am pretty sure this last one has been scrubbed from the internet because its like lawsuit grounds.

She actually reached out to a handful of fans in early 2017 on her now defunct fan page. She was super chatty all through 2017, most likely because she was talking directly with Billy at this time. Late 2017 - early 2018 things obviously changed and she was distant. She would only give single responses or she would direct message some bizarre statement. We talked a sporadically the rest of the year, never touching the SP issue. After Fall 2018 not a peep.

The Mancow image was recent (2017-2018).

Really, the one I am looking at is clearly not recent. I'm more than sure we can't post it here.
