My one and only real disappointment about ORC
And HC's photos from Sundance with Billy on guitar made me think of it. No singing from Billy. And why not? He had the perfect opportunity with Emerald Rose on Saturday night, and, of course, with WWS on Friday. Some say they were too worried about a possible "rush to the stage" if Dom or Billy sang with WWS on Friday. But, there was only a small group up at front listening to Emerald Rose, and we know he was there, because he he accepted an award for Dom afterwards. Although... he may have been busy with autographs.

And I try never to get my hopes up for anything that's not certain, but with TWO opportunities to sing, and no Oscar parties to rush off to, I did think that was 99% certain. In fact, to be honest - 50% of the reason I went was because I would never have forgiven myself had I not been there, and he sang. (the opportunity to take photos was the other 50% - *S*) Was anybody else expecting that?

Okay - my only sad comment about ORC, I swear. *S* Just had to get that off my chest.

*hugs you tightly*

I'm sorry, hon. I really am. But we'll have other opportunities, and one day we'll go see Billy in Hamlet, and OMG won't it be grand?

*more hugs*

Well, we did get to hear him sing Happy Birthday...but I know what you mean. That would have been really cool.

Well. he left right after announcing the award. He, Dom, and Elijah had dinner plans for 8:00 that night, which had to be changed due to the length of the line. So Elijah called Dom and they agreed they would all meet for drinks as soon as the autographs were done, according to some people who were in line at that point. Apparently he left as soon as he handed out the award. And I believe they had been signing right up until the party was going. I know I got to the front of the line at almost 9:00, and as you remember I was #2. The line still went all the way down the wall. I imagine he left due to exahustion.

But I agree, WWS would have been the perfect time to sing! Or even during karaoke. But I guess they did not feel as sade as they would have liked. I doubt there would have been any danger but I can understand their apprehension. It would have been nice to hear him sing, though. *sigh*

Really? 9 pm? I had no idea - thanks for confirming that. Good lord, that's right - you did have #2! Poor guys. Well, at least that explains why he didn't sing with Emerald Rose. When they didn't sing with WWS, I was really expecting to hear them with Emerald Rose. Poor lads - a long time to autograph! Thanks.
