WORLD TRADE CENTER
Both Billy and I appreciate all the emails we received in the wake of the 9/11 WTC tragedy. Luckily, everyone we know is safe. Several fans have expressed interest in the video for “Love Is The Hero” which featured a shot of the WTC. We are offering it on VHS for $20. All profits go to charity.
Autographed and tour merchandise is available. You can pay by money order, credit card or bank debit. Visit www.billysquier.com’s merchandise section. Billy has just finished mixing the live, updated version of “Sweet Release” from the benefit. An enhanced cd including video from the performance will be available at http://www.billysquier.com by year’s end. We’ll do an emailing to let everyone know when it’s available. On and off, we will be auctioning items at www.ebay.com. To find out what we have up for auction at anytime, go to search, then seller and look us up as squiersales.
We ordered the Piper single cd featuring both Piper albums from a store that was selling it, but they cannot get anymore. We are attempting to contact one of the manufacturers and will let everyone know if we have any luck. Billy himself has no rights to the Piper material and does not control the releases in any way. The out of print cds (Tale of the Tape, Emotions in Motion, Signs of Life, Enough is Enough, Hear & Now, Creatures of Habit, and Tell the Truth) can often be found at http://www.ebay.com.
While we will continue to do physical mailings for certain things, we want to have everyone’s email address on file so that we can do emailings when we have late-breaking or area-specific news. You CANNOT have only your email address on file, we need a corresponding name and mailing address on file as well. Please email me at email@example.com with all your updated mailing info and any questions. All letters to Billy MUST go to (NOTE: Old addresses. Please use site’s CONTACT page.).
HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE HOLIDAY SEASON, JUDY
