Billy Zoom Doesn’t Play the Guitar… Billy Zoom Flirts with the Girls Up Front and the Guitar Spontaneously Sings His Praises.

posted by on April 1 at 16:45 PM

That’s how it was last night at the Showbox.

He was amazing to watch. Effortlessly pealing off riffs while grinning like a greasy William F. Buckley, Billy Zoom took his instrument to an eerie level. Simultaneously cute and creepy, Zoom generously offered winks, picks and guitar touches—I got in a stroke (swoon)—to the rabid audience.

Barely breaking a sweat, rarely looking at his fretboard and hardly even moving his fingers, Billy Zoom made the amp do all the heavy lifting. A stunning contrast to the openers who broke five or six strings cuz they were “rocking so hard”.

And that cheshire grin never left his face.

Also, Billy Zoom can not be photographed because he emits rays of pure silver light.
