...and if ya get a chance to take a peek at this month's Stomp and Stammer, some chippie scribbled a yarn about our man Childish... From Atlanta he travels west to Phoenix and San Fran before heading home, so if ya have a hankering, don't snooze.

like a stab in the heart, this arrived today...

I'm terribly sorry to pass on this news from Billy's wife. I'm completely gutted as I'm sure you are.
The art show is still on, but Billy won't be here. Hopefully we can reschedule his gig and we'll keep you posted. We will refund your ticket money shortly.

On behalf of Billy, I apologize for the disappointment.

all best,

Shawn Vinson
