First song I heard by AC/DC was "Highway To Hell" just after Bon had passed away, and I was instantly hooked. Since then, AC/DC have become my favorite band. The first time I saw them in concert, I was blown away by the high energy show they performed and It blew me away. Seeing them live made me want to be a rock star too lol. Well that never happened, so I joined the closest thing I could get to being a rock star like AC/DC, I joined LIVE WIRE.

Billy portrays AC/DC's solid, hard hitting 'in the pocket' drummer Phil Rudd on stage. Billy also appears exclusively in AC/DC's official fan documentary "AC/DC FANNATION" and was one of the "AC/DC Caravan" contest winners.
