Billy began playing guitar in the '60s when they were all made of wood and mostly the same colour. After a misspent youth in various bands including Jack the Lad, he formed Maxie & Mitch with Pete McIntyre and spent the last 20 years playing music in a funny way to anyone after a laugh. In 1996 Billy joined Newcastle's favourite sons; the critically acclaimed Lindisfarne. He only plays a handful of solo concerts every year, so catch him while you can.
