Welcome Tommy!
With the changing of the drumming guard, it seemed only natural that the guy who gave Billy his name (as in Billy Lethal) should join the fray. Yes, taking on the reins at the drum set for BLT is none other than Mr. Tommy Fell, drummer extraordinaire (and brother of one Billy Fell). Tommy has been in some very innovative and groove oriented bands over his playing career and we look forward to working with him. Welcome aboard Tom!

Farewell Paul!
Billy and Fred want to take this opportunity to thank Paul Vanderlinden for his hard work and solid beats during the last year and a half or so. All good things do come to an end and Paul will be moving on to concentrate more fully on his band "The B-Side" from here on. (Good band that you all really do need to check out). We'd also like to thank him for his sense of humor, his willingness to go the extra mile and most of all his friendship. Don't be a stranger my friend. Catch you on "The B-Side."

CD Release Party and More
Thank you to all who came out to Milwaukee's Shank Hall on Friday, March 27, 2015 for our, "Audio Animals" CD release party. Great crowd, great room and great tunes all around. Special thanks to our friends, "Off The Record" for opening the show and another special thanks to Mr. Todd Scott for coming down to mix the band. Don't forget that, "Audio Animals" is available on iTunes, Spotify and many other online outlets.

On another note, the last couple of weeks have been a bit challenging for the band on a personal level. Without going into detail, let's just say hug your parents and your kids and tell them you love them every day. You won't regret it.

Check back on this site in a few days for our new demos from the Audio Animals CD. We will be putting up those links as soon as they are available.

Here's the link to a video taken by the good folks at Pocaro's Indian Motorcycle of Racine during our July 15, 2015 performance during their Tuesday Night Thunder series. Enjoy!

Billy (Lethal) Fell - Guitars and Vocals
Bill has proven time and again to be one of the most creative and prolific song writer/guitarists in the entire Midwest. Previous (and current) bands include The Fell Boyzs and 357 Magnum to name just a few. Hailing from Waukesha, WI, Bill continues to lay down some of the most soulful and heartfelt lead guitar sounds you'll ever hear. Favorite quote: "The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils" - William Shakespeare

Fred Christensen - Bass Guitar and Vocals
Fred has been playing bass for the better part of his adult life and has been hooked on playing since the British Invasion made every kid in American want to be a rock star. Previous (and current) bands include Shakedown, Rip Snortin' and The Prime Cuts and Four30Nine. Currently living in the Town of Genesee, WI Fred is really having a great time playing with his friends in Billy Lethal and The Talespin. Favorite quote: "Without music, life would be a mistake" - Friedrich Nietzsche

Tommy Fell - Drums and Vocals
From his humble beginnings in 1964 with The Orpheus Blues Band through the 00's with the Fell Boyzs and now into the 20-teens with BLT, Tommy Fell has been a constant and larger than life presence behind the drum kit. Tom has kept the beat in a number of touring bands such as Peabody and Blood Money (which, BTW morphed into the R&B horn band Sass). He has also been a member of the 80's bands No Excuse, Kid-U-Not and Orphic's Alley. Tom calls Kenosha home these days and is really looking forward to teaming up with brother Billy again. Favorite quote: "Art is not what you see, but what you make others see" - Edgar Degas

A follow up from the life is way too short file. The lady that had been such an inspiration to Mr. Lethal over the years is at last at peace. Her name was Audrey. Among so many other things, she had been a loving wife, mother, grandmother and mother in-law. Billy L. wishes to dedicate this guitar based instrumental to her and her family. The song is simply called, "Audrey". Godspeed. http://www.siteskins.net/billylethalandthetalespin/misc/audrey.mp3
