The purpose of this page is to inform and educate the people of the world what most Australians already know: The fact that Billy Thorpe is a Rock and Roll Living Legend. However, most of his albums have been released only in Australia, and his American records did not sell well enough to bring him to the acclaim he deserves. This forum is to provide links for Thorpie fans to be educated, and possibly purchase items from the authorized dealers (for example, the hard-to find Compact Disks which are still in print, or his books, etc.)
Instead of my repeating information which is already available (see the Links page for the "Thorpie!" book), I intentionally avoid doing things which involve plagerism, or copyright infringement. (Hence the fact that there are no .WAV files here).
Also, while adding the new name to all the major Search Engines, I came upon the following article.Billy Thorpe's link to the Montauk Project
Since this person decided to link (uncredited) to my website, without permission, I feel compelled to return the favor.
And now, my opinion of his site:
This person has to be one of the most deluded persons on our planet. This is someone who obviously has WAY too much time on his hands, and perhaps needs to stop playing on his computer, and get a real job. Maybe even stop living in his parent's basement, stop watching "Star Trek", and get a girlfriend. This is the most ridiculous theory I have ever heard of, and I enjoyed laughing my *** off.
PS - don't tell him about Billy's album called: "Time Traveller." :-)
Maybe I should start a "Letters" page, with all YOUR reviews and opinions of it! Write to me and let me know what you think of it!
Extra special thanks goes out to Joseph Gonzalez for all of his assistance,the album summaries, and the inspiration for this page.
Some of the album listings were compiled with the assistance of a neat little booklet called

Most of all, I would like to give thanks (and credit) to Spencer Proffer, Karen Chamberlain, and Carol Peters (Hi Evan and Jemma!) for letting me work at the Pasha Music House, and giving me permission to keep anything I wanted that was supposed to be thrown in the trash bin. It really was a wonderful experience, despite you-know-who. :-)
