Billy Squier

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i finally get to see him in concert tomorrow night at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles. i've always liked his music but somehow missed his live shows in the 80's & 90's. DH and i saw him last year with Ringo Starr. Squier was the main reason i went since he hadn't toured solo in years. he only did 2 of hisown songs and i figured that was better than nothing. we got seats in the 3rd row.
24 hours to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ringo Starr was the drummer for the Beatles, among other things. And Billy Squier is a rock singer and guitarist who had several hit songs but really didn't fit into the 80s (which helped hurt his career some) because his style was more that of the guitar driven 70s rock. I grew up listening to Squier records - and a lot of other music.


How's Squier's voice lately? I'm sure he's lost some range and his voice has lowered with age, but does he still sound pretty good?
He'll be coming through one of the casinos around here. While I like his music, DH would rather shove pencils in his ears than listen to something like that.
Have fun!

I've seen Billy Squier "Everybody Wants You!" I still like him a lot, turn it up when he's on the radio. Did you know he used to be Billy Thorpe "Children of the Sun?"

Billy Squier is an American and still living.
Billy Thorpe was an English born Aussie and died 2 years ago.

Oh, dear! I have been terribly misinformed all these years!

If you listen to oldies, this is the one you're most likely to hear from Billy Squier.

The Stroke

Fender's low-level guitars are branded Squier. It's hard to be sure whether they got the name from Billy or not.

And surely no one on earth doesn't know who Ringo Starr is? He's the guy who starred with Shelley Long in "Caveman," right?

it was a great show. no opening band and Billy played for 2.15 hrs. pretty much did all the hits except 'in the dark'. still full of energy and he sounded great.
