Billy, your work with The Cowsills is dear to me. At 18, I'm a very young fan; I discovered your family only last week. Their music surely stands the test of time. I wish you all the best, up there - thank you! ~ River Blue ~

Cowsill were part of the music of my teens. Always thought they had great harmonies like the beach boys. Funny how Billy almost joined and John actually did. I only recently discovered the Blue Shadows. I can't understand why they were not promoted better! I also heard some of Billy's versions of Elvis and other 60's songs. He was excellent. He even got the Elvis snarl down pat!! He was certainly highly underated and deserved to be front and center. What a talent!! RIP Billy.

Dang. Rediscovered Billy almost 10 years too late to meet him. But his voice & spirit were recorded many times and remain an inspiration. Yea. One of the coolest, most soulful white guys I ever heard. RIP Billy.

As the oldest sibling, Bill, you were the leader. Just felt moved to say thank you for the music. Myself only born in '65, you could say that I am old school to say the least and known for that. Actually we have a basement band with my own son and younger brother and love this era. I have older siblings myself and being the biggest Beatles fan I can tell you that before I bought my first album in Aug. '78, Sgt. Peppers, I had listened to my older sister's Best of The Cowills album so you all get the credit. And yes even after 21 plus years of marriage I can say probably like others including the other interviewers, Susan, I have a crush on you too.

I have been a fan since the late sixties of the Cowsills. Loved the style of music and admired the love the sibblings had for each other until the end. Rest in peace Billy. I purchased the family band last month and it made me feel so close to your family and more respect and understanding. You were great sir and now god can enjoy as we did...God bless all the Cowsills.........

WHY CAN THE COWSILLS PLAY AT THE HOILDAY STAR THEATER? I CAN WALK THERE FROM WHERE I LIVE. WHY DO THEY PLAY WITH ALL THE OTHERS THERE LIKE THE BUCKINGHAMS, PAULREVERANDTHE RAIDERS AND MANY OTHER MANY OTHERS FROM THE 60'S BANDS.

Billy was a true artist. I seen this when he sang THE RAIN THE PARK AND OTHER THINGS. I THINK HE COULD HAVE MADE IT BIGGER THAN JUST BEING A COWSILL BAND. MY UNDERSTANDING HE WANTED MORE THAN THIS BUT HIS ASS HOLE FATHER STOP HIM. P.S I LOVE THE BLUE SHADOWS.

The best Tuesday night's I ever had - and will. Thank you Billy. Jealous of God having you every night and apparently considering a cover at the pearly gates. Whatever the charge, it's not enough.

I grew up at the same time as the Cowsill children. I was touched when I watched the Cowsill Documentary 10 time in three days. I love you all. I bought tickets to the Vegas concert in June, I plan on going on the Caribbean cruise next January. I bought every album/ CD that I could find with any and all Cowsill children. Billy, I plan to meet you in heaven. God bless you all! So much love, Laura

My heart broke watching the documentary yesterday and today. We never knew the story behind the scenes until now and it breaks my heart that you poor kids went through these terrible times especially due to your father. I am so sorry. My sis and I were about the same age and we were big fans, my sis even sent in a logo for the Cowsills many years ago when they had a contest for it. My heart especially broke when I learned Billy had passed on. I am so sorry for all you have been through, rest in peace Billy ♥
You and Barry are in heaven together ♥

To the Cowsill family, watched your documentary twice on show time and was sad when brother Bill's death was revealed. I found his input refreshing, honest, and interesting. I'm in my mid 50s and grew up with Cowsills music but am far more intrigued with the family history now than I was 45years ago. All the best , stephen

Played Billy's music on Vancouver radio, and did a number of shows with his bands. He was kind of shy and guarded but very cool.
You had the it factor, Billy.
I quit smoking because of you. Hopefully I will live healthier. You see, you are still inspiring people!
Thank you, Bill.
RIP

I was watching "Dumb and Dumber" tonight on TV and they started playing the song, "The Rain, the Park and Other Things" and it got me thinking about the Cowsills and what great harmony they sang in their songs! You know....I think I miss that sound! Barry and the Cowsills....you music live on!

Dear Cowsills: I found my way here, I guess, because Billy is the oldest. Anyway, I now have 3 musically inclined teenagers of my own. Having said that, I see how incredible it is to have a family get together and perform at that level. The only other comparable musical families I can think of are the Jackson 5 and the Osmonds. But the Cowsills were the first.
So thanks to all of you for the years you gave us. You are a formidable part of the love I have for music today.

seems like yesterday was the 60's..While others grew up on the beatles because of my sisters I grew up with the Cowsills. It inspired me to be in bands with moderate success but it was the fun. I still hear the ocean at night as I did as a kid and when I hear cowsills songs I am imediately brought back to a time which today seems so innocent. Thank you for your family and maybe, and if things keep going this fast, soon well all be where you are now and can possibly jam wow now that would be cool. My deepest condolences to the Cowsill family who shared their lives and talent, and I'm so glad continue to. From a kid from the Bronx who escaped to the shore for a week in the summer with an AM radio and the Cowsills..now living on the shore my lighthouse.

John Lennon wrote " Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans". Seems I have missed Billy's passing working my plan. I first met Billy at the Fairview Pub in Van. I walked in and heard a most genuinely beautiful original musical Voice. When told he was Billy Cowsill I was floored. He had the aura and presence of a great original talent with his lyrics and voice. He always took time to say hello "Black" and share a good chat. Rest in Peace Billy, the torments suffered by great Artists now gone are over for them, you have a closer place in my heart, with them. Thanks Billy. "Black"
