    maybe if we're lucky they'll also charge him with "felony sucking" and then throw away the key.

    Heh, well, I'm not in jail so the billy joe must be him. I oughta change my last night and starta punk band :D

  9. I'm pretty sure he ment the English Pianist. There's no way Billie Joe Armstrong would get a D.U.I. He has a family with a six-year old in it. He's a family man.
  10. Hey fenderbass, your reporting could use some work. Who is Billy Joe? BillIE Joe Armstrong of Green Day? a typo for Billy Joel? your neighbor's third cousin? Also, a source would be nice; I couldn't find any info about this...
  11. Or perhaps you miss heard and it was actually Billy Jean!

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Which means what? How many drunken drivers out there are husbands and fathers? Just because he's a family man means precisely ZIP.

    It's been a bad few weeks for the music pros. Queen Latifa and Diana Ross were also recently aprehended for drunken driving.

    By the way, Queen Latifa was excellent in the role of the prison matron of a woman's prison in "Chicago." She has been nominated for a Golden Globe for that part as best supporting actress. I hope she gets it. I also hope she cleans up her drinking.
  16. i dunno, man. that's starting out on a slippery slope for punishable musical crimes. soon they'd be locking up folks for, oh, felony wanking, and some of us would be in trouble...

    I thought this was a great bit of sarcasm myself.

    I was slightly taken aback by the thought Billy Joel had been arrested, then I read it a second time.

    Who cares?:p

    it only counts as wanking if it ends up with a mess.
