      Chris M. Ferguson after 20+ years of worldwide fame he just wants to connect with real people. It’s awesome.

    I wish he would have played that little breakdown at the end . It’s my favorite part of the song but still very good

    He's so genuine and down to earth. Don't know why so many people hate him, he's such a great person.

      They hate him because they don't understand him. He's been ahead of his time and still is ahead of this time.

      siddhant they hate him because he’s into crazy conspiracy theories and really bizarre politics

      siddhant I don’t think it’s that a lot of people hate him, I think it’s maybe hate is much more magnified so it’s seems the masses! Billy is a rockstar of a person and a poet of a songwriter. Wish there was a way to hear all of his unpublished work

    I always thought The Smashing Pumpkins sucked but have really been digging Billy with his acoustic. He can play all his hits alone and they sound amazing.

    Is that song called nineteen-seventy-nine or nineteen-seven-nine?

    • Dan mulqueen
      Dan mulqueen Year ago

      It sounds like he says nineteen seven nine, my guess is drugs played a part in the original and now he just goes with it

    • Dan mulqueen

      peaceandllov for someone with the username peace and love you’re pretty toxic.
      also, the title is nineteen seventy nine, like the year.

      I had hoped to get an answer from someone who actually knows. People like you who make assumptions are of no use.

      peaceandllov ok is there a reason you’re fucking around with me? You asked a dumb question and I gave you the answer. Stop wasting my time.

    Ironically, the next word in the lyrics was .. Morphine.
    Enjoy life Bill, you're an awesome artist and I hope you'll do more of the same 90s vibe again.

      What did he do that wasn't nice? I'm asking for real, not calling you out or anything. He seems pretty up front an honest about things.
