Bill holds down the rhythm section emulating AC/DC's Cliff Williams on bass guitar. Bill's nickname, given to him by his bandmates is "Daytona", which originated due to the fact that every year Bill would attend the Daytona 500 race in Florida, until he joined the band, since each year around that time, LIVE WIRE would end up with an international gig. Bill's second gig with the band, a few weeks after he joined was in Oulu, FINLAND!
