Billy Childs is best known for his work as a founding member of
the eighties rock band Britny Fox. Britny's relative importance
in the decade was best described by Eddie Trunk, on VH1, as
of the most influential bands of the decade, sandwiched between
Kiss and the Scorpions. As a platinum artist, Billy has also
appeared on many other recordings, Seven Witches' Jack Frost
solo albums, and NYC's Sweet Cyanide with Sal Scoca to name a
few. Billy grew up with GTLO's Adam Ferraioli, and also played
with guitarist Jimmy Marchiano in the Philadelphia based band "Lecompt"
during the nineties. After some years of Britny Fox touring,
Billy was living in California when in a strange twist of fate his old friends approached
him about joining Get The Led Out. Being an avid John Paul Jones
fan, and based on his history with some of the members, a move
back to Philadelphia was soon in the works. Billy was then reunited with Adam in a very full and
perfect circle, as the two actually started out together in the
music business playing Led Zeppelin as teenagers. Adam was also
in Britny Fox in the eighties, so the reunion wasn't as long a
time comin' as some would think. Growing up with, and being
molded by Zeppelin is certainly why it's such a natural fit for
both him and the band. Get The Led Out's "note for note"
approach is what intrigued Billy about the project, and made it
a challenge that he eagerly anticipated. It would be a chance to
accurately recreate the songs he grew up learning, and
influenced him to such a large degree.
