Re: “Billy Beale Benefit featuring Them Damned Young Livers, Blue Boot Healers, Cadillac Flambe, Electric Lungs, the Fall Down Drunks, Crybaby Ranch, Mati Mat, Uncle Penny Bags

Yea, he's a good singer if you like scratchy loud yelling. I hope practice with his prison band improves his act.
Not impressed. Yo!

Re: “First Friday at Hex

1906 Wyandotte is not Wyndotte County. But the Pitch is published by an out-of-town publisher,so no suprise there.

I know that some of you think that this nobody that is slandering Billy is my dad... I can assure you that it is not my dad... My dad couldnt write a post like that if it was to save his life... My dad dont know how to use the computer very well... And he cant spell very well... So its not him... I am JT of The Rotgut Ramblers out of Columbia MO... I can honestly say that Billy Beale is a close family friend... And when mr John AKA KC Guitars that Suck comes out and says who he really is... He will meet some of my family and some of my friends... But he will be hiding from Bills true friends and family... Bill is a legend amoung anyone who has had the honor of sharing a stage or a story with him... He has always looked out for everyone... If he really knows Billy for 30+ years... He would know his story and would know better than to talk trash... Thats all I have to say about that... And if you think its my dad... Best to contact me directly @ TheRotgutRamblers@gmail.com... Thanks for your time...

Re: “ReelSmart Trivia

Awesome game. Kansas City doesn't currently have anything like it. There are several general trivia games around town that are great, but they don't have the audio/video of this game. Agree with Tim G, highly recommended!

John Newsroom, I know the lady who still has the scars from his hands but I'm pretty sure she forgave him. I think Billy was a different person back then. Maybe you didn't know that Billy, and we are all thankfull he changed his ways.
I sure hope this stops, negativity leads only to more negativity.

To Billys family.. This dude is just jealous. I bet he can't get his dick hard. He's such a pussy that he can't leave his real/whole name but he can identify himself thru "guitars that rock". The only rock coming from him is probably from his old ass kidney. I hope it hurts when you Pee you negative asshole. Billy Beale forever.

Billy has never been a woman beater. I've seen women cling to him and beat the hell out of him... If he were a woman beater I'm sure these folks wouldn't be backing him.

If a person is their past the "john" must be a giant D bag. I hope his crazy ass hillbilly family or his midtown punk friends come looking for him. He deserves a knot on the head and a busted rib or two.

Okay John S. You've had your moment in the spotlight...The Show is over! Everyone has a right to their own opinion, you've expressed yours! My Brother has friends and Enemies, he embraces both. John we are a close knit family and are happy to know where you stand. Not everyone gets a forum to express how they feel...You should be proud! No rebut needed here...Turn out the lights John, the party is over.....Kat.

Re: “ReelSmart Trivia

Checked out their game a couple of weeks ago and had a blast. Best new trivia game in town! Lots of audio and video clips and the Screenland is the perfect venue. Pretty slick. Highly recommended!

Re: “Billy Beale Benefit featuring Them Damned Young Livers, Blue Boot Healers, Cadillac Flambe, Electric Lungs, the Fall Down Drunks, Crybaby Ranch, Mati Mat, Uncle Penny Bags

It was NEAR fatality crash,as I stated and if you know him so well, why don't you ask him about it. Maybe your too afraid to learn I am right. He did loose some teeth back then. Yes he lost more later outside Blayney's. That can happen when you beat on women in public, so he had that comming. Oh you didn't think I knew about that... remember there are two sides to every story. There are entirely too many people from his past to verify this one so don't even go there. You were not there. My name is John and I have known Willy 30 + years. He knows who I am. I have nothing to hide from him. Furthermore, I have had many write ups in Pitch weekly and I have even met you Mr.No Class Records so put that in your pipe and choke on it. Your not the first one to record him a project or have a studio so get off your high horse. It's just your ignorance that bothers me now. You deny and you lie...all for what? I SIMPLY WANT TO INFORM THE PUBLIC WHERE THEIR MONEY WILL GO IF THEY SUPPORT SUCH A CAUSE. You want to support him? More power to you but they have the right to know. And sorry to tell you this but people are defined by their past actions. He only plays up to you kids because it gets him attention and you belive what ever story he tells. As for the pity train, he only feeds from it because he got caught. Not my fault he can't rubutt this. He put himself in jail. If he needs the money so bad I'm sure he can sell enough weed when he gets out to cover his ass. Just like he always has.

Re: “Billy Beale Benefit featuring Them Damned Young Livers, Blue Boot Healers, Cadillac Flambe, Electric Lungs, the Fall Down Drunks, Crybaby Ranch, Mati Mat, Uncle Penny Bags

I can back up a large chunk of what Jody just said.

I engineered every session and mixed every song from those sessions on all 3 full length albums Jody is referring to (2 of those albums Billys son plays on as well.)

I've sat down with Billy before, not talking about recording, just me and him, nobody else at all...and you know what sat him apart and still sets him apart from the older musicians that have been around the so called "block" in this town? Instead of rattling off about other people he didn't like, he talked about music that he did like.


He had nothing bad to say about anyone.

Re: “Billy Beale Benefit featuring Them Damned Young Livers, Blue Boot Healers, Cadillac Flambe, Electric Lungs, the Fall Down Drunks, Crybaby Ranch, Mati Mat, Uncle Penny Bags

As the Producer of Billy's New album and the owner of Little Class Records, I'd like to address a couple issues. first off, Yes Linda... Billy has quite the Heap of medical bills that are only growing and left virtually unpaid while he is in lock up.

I can also say that I've been working with Billy (not only on his record but two other local bands records) in the studio for over 2 years. I've shared the stage with him twenty plus times during this time. I've logged days in the studio and even a few out of town road trips. I have never once witnessed Billy drink a single drop of booze. Last time I saw him intoxicated was in Warrensburg in 08 before I really knew him. Next time I made his acquainance he was SOBER. I find it hard to believe that Mr Anonymous guitar man drank from his crown royal in 09... because Billy was wearing an anklet that monitored his intake. Billy received zero Infractions for consuming anything. I should know, I went to several of his court dates.

Mr guitar man, If you respected his family you would not slander his name when he had no chance to rebut. You also would identify yourself.

Billy was never responsible for any crash related deaths or otherwise. His teeth were knocked out after being jumped behind blaneys.. Not a felonious vehicular homicide. This is pure slander and I venture to say based on a past grudge. I think some old blues guy is upset that he's not being written about in the Pitch or being supported by a younger, (I'm 33 by the way, not a KIDDO) hipper music community.

Was Billy a mean drunk at one point and time? Mean Probably. Drunk.. of course. Has he broken the law by driving drunk? Yes. Chances are.. if you're a working musician for 40 plus years, you've done that. Some get caught. Some don't. Of course its not right.. But Billy is NOT his DUI's. They do not define him or what he gives the midtown community. Billy is however serving the time he deserves for breaking the laws of the land. You can't sit in a running vehicle intoxicated.. no matter how cold it is.

The Billy Beale I know is ornery, full of life and a supporter of his local scene. He has a community that supports him. As far as enabling? Billy makes his living in an environment where the substances flow and he has remained sober since the long arm of the law reached out and touched him this last time. Anyone who would like to publicly dispute that should have the balls to say who they are.

Nobody here supports his past decisions to drive intoxicated.. But we would be liars if we said we were innocent of such things in our individual lives. Releasing this album on his behalf and this benefit show is because our community has a friend who has fallen upon hard times. Its because we have a local gem who won't be around forever and his music deserves the light of day. There is no amount of nay saying that will convince us otherwise. Everyone has a past. Everyone has done things they regret. It doesn't mean they deserve public slander when some positive attention comes their way. He's not running for office. He's not a member of any church. He's a low down dirty rock n' roller entering the winter of his life. Them Damned Young Livers, Little Class Records and countless others plan on giving him the admiration and support he deserves and we'll stamp our name on it. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Does anyone have a copy of the Rumble on the highway record? Mine busted up years ago but I would like to revisit it. Has some good songs on it.
