RIP Billy Conway

RIP Billy Conway, a drummer for Morphine the band.

Cancer got him, which I bet he thought was probably better than a heart attack live on stage, then dead on stage, like Sandman. I didn't envy Conway, having to live with that memory, and I don't envy him now after he fought but lost.

Anyway he was a good man I hear, and he was part of a genuinely unique band which I had the good fortune to coexist with while in awareness of.

The show in 1999 at The Carefree, off Like Swimming, that was me, and my girl, being lucky for a change.
