Sad to read this, one of the good guys. Sorry for his family and all in The Beach Boys orbit.

So very sad. I'm hearing that Billy's mother also passed away today. Does anyone know what happened?

Damn, he seemed like he was in pretty good shape, especially in his Facebook livestreams. Shocking - vale

So sad to hear about this. A talented singer and musician and so important to The Beach Boys legacy, probably should have been made an official member at some point. Definitely gone too soon.

Sail on, Billy… https://youtu.be/FkYuGN7zyho

Such sad news. Billy died the same day as his mother.

If there is another side, lots of ex-friends and bandmates gave him a big hug.

Saw this on facebook and was shocked. So sad to see someone involved with the band as long as he has pass away, especially someone as comparatively young as Billy.

He was a great pinch hitter, and it was nice to see that he was still close enough to Brian where he was able to fill in for Darian a few years ago. (Unfortunately, I think he also got sick that same tour, the November 2015 show I saw was one of the first with Debbie Shair, I believe.)

And you know what? His rapping on Wipe Out, complete with his Uncle Sam MC getup? It's got a lot of cornball charm, looking back 30+ years later.

On our way through this "backstage" maze, Bruce joined up with the group and said hello, singing "It Never Rains in Southern California" and joking with some of the older ladies. I'm not sure if they knew he was a Beach Boy or simply an enthusiastic elderly gay gentleman.

Truly one of the nicest people I ever got to meet in the BB stratosphere.  A great musician and singer and an even better person.  The ultimate testament to Billy was the fact that he always left you with a smile.  RIP Billy!

Oh, God, so sorry to hear this. Billy seemed like one of the nicest people in the BB orbit. I enjoyed watching a fair number of those Live at Billy's over the last year and a half, and never had the slightest inkling that he was unwell.

I am devasted. Billy was one of the good guys, who (like Carl) never met a stranger.

Yes, sending prayers for Annie, Jonah, Justyn and the rest of the family.

I'd just seen Billy in LONG PROMISED ROAD--as always, an upbeat, thoughtful, and unfailingly supportive presence. He left us way too soon.

I'm at a loss for words. I had some nice chats with Billy through the comment section when he did his videos on Facebook. He seemed like such a nice person and no sign of health issues or whatever. I can't believe this. I would like to say something, but I'm just shocked. Rest in peace, Billy! So sad

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Goes without saying all the contributions Billy brought to the BB world over his life. The one time I saw Brian live Billy was a part of the band, so thankful to have seen him perform. Farewell our friend.

Billy was more than gracious with me over the years, answering tons of questions related to my research. Definitely one of the best of that bunch. At least he, Carl and Dennis can be together now.
