...better known as Billy or Bass Wolf of the legendary Guitar Wolf.
I was introduced to the mighty Guitar Wolf back in 1996, when I was working at Musiplex. I can't remember if I read about them, or if a co-worker got me hip to them, but I remember what I felt when I first heard them. I was like, "this is what real rock n' roll is all about". The album was Missile Me, and it sounded like it was recorded in a parking garage. From the get-go, they had a fan in me for life. Rest in peace, Billy.
