His take on guns in the Lenon Commentary is interesting. Also, gotta love the smoking going on live on the set of his spotlight show. Great example of how just thirty years later, we are so different.

I would also accept a smashed-up 1978 Chevrolet Impala full of liquor bottles in the middle of Hart Plaza.

I believe we need a full size Bonds acompanied with a full size Coleman Young (the real one, not this wannabe who changed his name and moved here from Cali) each outfitted with boxing gloves and placed within Hart Plaza.

I think the lasting image I have is Bill, circa 1977 showing his Disco moves on top of the bar at the Excaliber iin Southfield. I can see that in bronze, bigger than life.

I really think we could use Bill back on the air, instead of the stiffs we are faced with these days.
i.e. Devin Scillian, Frank Turner.

I thinks a person needs to be dead before you start talking about a memorial for them.
