This weekend, Billy Squier (yes, the Billy Squier) wrote me a letter. I guess I shouldn’t feel so special, since I am on his fansite’s e-mail list and a whole bunch of people received his hand-type letter which was filled with tidings of comfort and joy.
Here’s the the good news:
Billy Squier will be touring next year! He’s also writing new material.
Squier toured this year as part of Ringo Starr’s backing band, but in 2009, he will tour with the spotlight shining solely on him (the way it should be).
A few years ago, I started to really get into Billy Squier, and wanted to know why he seemingly disappeared from the public eye. (When 80’s rockers aren’t doing reality shows, sometimes we lose track of them.)
Anyway, I’ve triangulated his position, and you better believe I’ll be witnessing the live wonders of Billy Squire come June ’09!
Here’s a TREAT to keep you entertained in the meantime.
