About bonnie prince billy
Bonnie "Prince" Billy is a pseudonym of post-punk, folk artist Will Oldham. " Yeah, the name has so many different references that it could almost have a life of its own. Bonnie Prince Charlie has such a beautiful ring to it, and I was very conscious of appropriating that mellifluous sound. And I was also thinking about the name Nat King Cole. But it wasn't until later, and this may have been subconscious, that I remembered that Billy the Kid was William Bonney or Billy Bonney." Read more about Bonnie Prince Billy on Last.fm.
