Billy Bang was a violinist and intense spirit who touched many of our lives. Although we lost Billy last Monday, we still have the vast memories and recordings of his music to keep that spirit alive.
Hopefully some of us (thanks to Peter Cox in NY) had a chance to hear WKCR in NY broadcast an incredible tribute and memorial to Billy last week. With their incredible resources they truly do justice to the lives of our beloved artists.
