    Billy was on the Natchez Trace Pkwy. I used to trip on acid at the Windsor Ruins.

    This is the best thing on right now. Better than anything on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon prime etc. This is where it's at! I hope you do more similar documentaries WPC! How about a behind the scenes documentary on your Shiny and Oh So Bright Tour?!

    Love the mini history lesson about the Civil War. We should never forget where we come from...

      Yup. The migration of Europeans to a new land followed by the massacre of 500 proud nations of Native Americans .....followed by butchery to see who gets what .. all maintained by slavery. That's where you come from. Lots of blood.

    Yes, those bridges coming out of Southern Illinois are ridiculously narrow. Like the one from Cairo to Missouri.

    It's just awesome that Billy is doing these video logs. Showing us places in America most would never even think about visiting. Thanks [Fanks].

    Must be awesome to be incognito and wander the historical
    sites. The barn owe at the gravside is your lost family members revisiting you. Grandma maybe? I have a willywagtail that visits me almost everyday, ususlly when I am upset or confused.

      wasn't it? i mean, seriously! that sound was mind blowing. and the way he sang as well.
      Billy, go back there and do a concert there! more free form though, well, sort of like you did there, some harmonium, a vibraphone maybe, a glass harp some vocals.....
      where exactly is that place? maybe i'll go there someday and play there myself....the sound was really so special, not just that amazing reverb, i don't know, something very, very special i think.
      it's in Mississippi somewhere, no? i can't really understand what he's saying where it is, if you could tell me, i'd really appreciate it, thank you!

    Is the Gatorman segments, actually a long wrestling promo? Cause if it is, its going to be one hell of a match. Gatorman vs the Ivory Tower! Book that match.
