i miss bill's posts, and his magnificent early monday kbcs radio show.

 

 

 

 

 

bill's musical tastes were as edgy as my own.

 

 

 

 

 

tell me bill is well.

I have not heard from him, and he's also been absent from facebook -

All signs of Bill on KBCS showlist, facebook postings, allaboutjazz postings seem to have ceased around April 20 from waht I can see. I can't find more, and also miss Bill and his good spirits. I've sent him an email, will let you know if I hear from him. Hoping for the best, but fearing the worst.

Miss him too, the fact he has similar musical tastes than mine made his posts quite relevant indeed.

strangely the seattle area funeral homes now carry a listing for a professional engineer , william barton, 77 years old.

i'm quite sure this is not our bill.

I seem to remember him mentioning he would be out for a while. Hands? I believe he wished me a happy earth arrival on FB April 30th.

I too hope he's ok.

OK -- but let's be careful here about assuming that this is our Bill Barton or, if it is, that these charges are true.

Shit.

Larry's right. But obviously hope this isn't Bill.

Hope this is the reason why he hasn't been around.

I broke two elbows two years ago and it didn't keep me from posting on FB or here that evening.

It was a couple of weeks before I could play with myself though. :unsure:

"Our" Bill Barton does live in Kent.

Thanks for that link (to the archival Organissimo forum post). I like it much better than my link, which I hope was an utterly irrelevant coincidence.

"Our" Bill Barton does live in Kent.

Yes, I was aware. I'd sent him some CDs, once upon a time.

here is an email from bill barton, written a year ago to the jazz programmers list where he says his address changes to 333 Summit Avenue in Kent, WA

http://lists.jazzweek.com/pipermail/jazzproglist/2010-July/044984.html

so name, age, city and the 333 (which is seen in the video) match... which doesn't mean he's guilty but which makes it unlikely it's not him; here it says William Barton aka blackbart2010 was arrested already in April

http://mynorthwest.com/?nid=11&sid=524954

which matches his disappearance, here is the youtube channel of a guy calling himself blackbart2010 who likes Chris McGregor

http://www.youtube.com/user/blackbart2010

and here

is more info if you want it...

This is awful. I feel sick.

I'm trying to keep in mind the last part of Larry's post, but this is bad.

Please don't take my comment as a verdict on what "our" Bill did or did not.

The mere thought about what these criminals have possibly and likely done is making me feel sick!

I'd honestly prefer living in a world were such things would never, ever, happen at all, it's utterly disturbing, no matter who did or does it, I just wish no one ever did even think of doing such things!

I have had exchanges with Bill Barton since the '70s - mail, phone, online discussion groups, facebook and email. This is not easy.

Jesus.

I sure hope it isn't him, but I guess it doesn't look too good. Not exactly the person I would expect.
