He then went on to playing a huge gig in Rome in Italy with a band called 'It Is' in front of 20,000 people . As quoted by Billy ' I was so calm all day, then 30 seconds before I went on I threw up!' and then played a fantastic gig... Billy is bringing his own style and music covers to Castlewood ....
Words from Crazy Bone:
Times have been hard. Every single person has been affected or touched by the pandemic.
Lives have not been normal. People passing way. Loneliness. Mental strain and health. Job losses.
Marital breakups. Baby booms!
Never did we foresee anything like this in our lifetimes. It came. Its here. it will not beat us.
Castlewood returns bigger and better than ever. The show returns and carries on.
The spirit of man and music always brings it all together.
Bad things are temporary. Good things are eternal.
Crazee Bone loves you all xxx
