    What is he doing right now musically? Do we know? Didn’t he write new SP music?

    I would be happy to see something in the image of The Future Embrace come along, I read recently BC had many hours of music from the TFE sessions.

  • Is he one?

    Damn I would love to see that but I guess I would get a little bit frustrated that he wouldn’t sing. His voice, to me, is the greatest there is.

    SO anxious for SP and/or Billy to release new music. Never had that big of a gap between new material being released by him.

    GO BILLY! 🙂

    Wam Meesly-

    There is indeed a profound amount of unreleased material from TFE sessions (as there is for Zwan). Have you ever checked out the ‘Chicago Songs’ that Billy had written for his solo act? He has upwards of 50 unreleased, mostly unheard songs there. He’s sitting on the songs as of right now, but you can dig around and find decent quality video & audio of those specific performances where he had debuted the material. Worth checking out.
