Billy Valentine

I began to find my authentic musical voice in 1991 thanks in large part to Billy Valentine. Billy is a really special soul. He’s a great friend. Someone who I’ve shared the road with for nearly twenty years. I love the guy. Deeply.

And he is one of the truly great singers around today. I’m continually amazed that more people do not know who he is. It never fails that when a newbie hears him for the first time, they are floored.

So, in the quest to increase Billy’s currency whenever possible, we at SoA found a great opportunity for mixing him into our musical fold.

On Tuesday night, November 24th, when our next-to-last episode of Season Two of Sons Of Anarchy airs, viewers will hear Billy singing the Creedence Clearwater Revival song “Someday Never Comes.” It's on iTunes, so if you’re digging it, drop the 99¢ and spread the word.

As a bonus, here is a a song from 1991 that I wrote with the incredible Phil Roy, my brother from 3 Guys From Italy. It’s called “Hope In A Hopeless World”. It’s been recorded many times. But no offense to the good people who have sung this song, none have brought it like Billy did....
