Billy Bang wasn’t called “Billy Bang” for nothing. He earned that name as a demolitions expert in Viet Nam but it was equally apt when he was blowing up the violin in searing explosions filled with joy and heartache. Few know this as well as drummer William Hooker who made music with Billy. He has never released it but he will share it with us tonight in a Deep Focus on Billy Bang from 6pm to 9pm NYC time on WKCR 89.9FM and wkcr.org.
