Billy Brehony
Independent - United States

Overview

Stolen from a Philadelphia hospital delivery room, Willie Jr. became the son of proud parents Bill and Barb in 1973. At the age of five, Willie started playing drums long before he learned how to speak and to this day his hard hitting drumming style still overshadows his communication skills.

During the day before soundcheck, Willie can be heard mumbling bad Jay Leno impressions to himself and making a series of arbitrary noises not far from those of an incoherent Hindu.

Although musicians like Mike Bordin, John Bonham and Morrissey influence Willie, he has been compared to some of the great "monkey drummers" such as Keith Moon and Ginger Baker. Willie joined the Bloodhound Gang due to his vast knowledge in Simpson's trivia and amazing ability to digest more hotdogs than Lupus, the bloated guitar player. While not on tour Willie keeps much to himself as he is easily confused and sometimes forgets what country he is in.
