In this Part 2 of a two part interview, Billy and Pete tackle a few of the
most galvanizing issues that confront Musicians today, including Copyright rights of a Musicians material, business realtionships with record labels, booking agents and managers. They speak candidly of their personal experiences in the Music Industry and the strong bonds they formed with each other over their 25 years working together. Billy explains how he, and Pete, developed the Featured Artist Coalition (FAC), with a few other prominent British Musicians, as an education resource to help Musicians protect their rights to their own art. Also, Billy explains his "Jail Guitar Doors" music education project for prisoners, and the responsibility of rehabilitation of people convicted and imprisoned by the State. His work with Jail Guitar Doors, named after a song written by The Clash, has spread across England and helped provide an outlet for prisoners and their experiences inside.

A complex and thoroughly entertaining conclusion to a unforgettable
experience for The Winnipeg Folk Festival and CKUW 95.9FM.
Produced by The Winnipeg Folk Festival, CKUW 95.9FM, and Black Mask: The
