Billy Bean on MySpace

May 10, 2009

Billy Bean was one of the greatest late-1950s beboppers (which is saying a lot!). Various rumours have circulated about his life over the last 4+ decades and the reasons why he seems to have languished in obscurity. I actually wasn’t sure whether Bean was still alive. However, it turns out that he has a MySpace profile, apparently maintained by a friend. He is shown on a few, clearly recent, pics with an early ES-175.
