PlayBallad of Billy the Kid
The idea with BBTK is to let the listener’s imagination run wild. But the inspiration lies in the reading of a bio about BTK, and I learned that he doted on his mother. She, by the way, had a terrible fear of what Hell was like. So I imagined that Billy, out of immeasurable love for his mother, chose to secure HIS place in Hell and guard the gates to ensure his mother never had to enter. And that’s the premise.
Don’t we all understand to a degree that “some things in this life are worth killing for”?
