It's Just A Ride...

Bill Hicks passed away 12 years ago yesterday, Feb.26, of pancreatic cancer.

And yet Pauly Shore, Carrot Top, and Jay Leno still walk the Earth. This is a strange and confusing universe, indeed.

    Bill was really sick when he did his 14th appearance on Letterman. Nobody outside of his immediate family knew how sick he was. In his hotel room that evening, he received a call that his performance was being censored from the show. Bill then performed some of his strongest rants ever. These were thought to be lost because nobody knew to record them...One has emerged.

    Free Download available of this audio recording that's surfaced after 13 years.

    These shows have long been thought uncaptured. This last week, one of these shows has emerged...dated 10/5/93.

    Multiple members of this site were involved in the Bill Hicks project www.WhatWouldBillHicksSay.com where participants were asked if Bill Hicks were alive today, What would Bill Hicks Say? Top entries from this project were published as a book recently released, 2/14/06, from Soft Skull Press.

    "Of course it was released on Valentine's Day. Bill Hicks was all about love...Love and Noam Chomsky." Said Howard Campbell, founder of WhatWouldBillHicksSay.com

    (okay, I'm also Howard Campbell)

    The book What Would Bill Hicks Say features cartoonists Jeff Danziger and Martyn Turner; writers Neal Pollack, Robert Newman, and A.L. Kennedy; and Thom Yorke of Radiohead.
