Billy Kram started a brutal band
He wrote hundreds of songs and got legions of fans
With a record company he signed,
The fame made him go blind,
And he signed his contract without reading it first, causing him to forgo all rights to his songs, his name, and he receives next to nothing from album sales. He has almost nothing. He wants to walk away but he’s afraid that if he does, he’ll lose what little he has left. He finds no joy in his music anymore, and he has become deeply addicted to heroin as a result.
