    No question for Billy but I was tempted to buy a Generation X double cd a couple of months ago in a record shop in London because you never see any Generation X cds these days?. It may have been the bands first album?.

    Don't know much about Billy other than he was in Generation X and he has released a number of albums under his own name during the 1980s & 1990s although one or two 'named' guitarists have name dropped him as playing with his band in the past but I can't remember who they were now?. No disrespect intended to Billy it's just he's a bit outside my musical sphere being more 1970s heavy rock myself.

    They started out with great intentions E-Z.
    Have a listen to Your Generation or Day By Day...soon they became as watery as Aldi lager.

    I did have a cheap 'best of' of Billy's mainly of his own material although it did have one Generation X song on it which I was more interested in. I am not into late 1970s punk although I have heard The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Damned & Stiff Little Fingers stuff and a lot of it is ok but I never heard any Generation X records so I became a bit curious about them in the past.

    I always find it funny he released an Xmas album, my fave song would probally be White Wedding but I also like Dead Next Door...



    His latest album is worth checking out too!
