Careening out of the past this week, Billy Squier trumpeting the end of a 30 year siesta from music with a one off entitled "Harder On A Woman". The lyrics of the new song seem to support women's choice in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to reverse Roe V Wade in 2022. Billy characterized it as a "Neil Young moment"; that is seizing a chance to weigh in on the issues of the day in song. It has been theorized by some that Billy's career arc pitched disastrously down after a series of 80's era hits "The Stroke", "My Kinda Lover" and "In The Dark". In '82 the first single off of the album "Signs Of Life", "Rock Me" made the room awkward over what critics panned as the 'Worst Video Ever' of Squier, with a Brian May mop of hair, flitting around a satiny boudoir in white sleeveless tee and drawstring pants. Comedian Dave Chapelle had a line that fit the cringey feel of Squier's choreography, I'll post the bit, so you know what I'm quoting and how it relates to Squier's rapid descent on the rock charts. Earlier this week, Billy gave an interview, somewhat huffy about the hurtles he's faced, including turning down a spot in Ringo Starr's All Star Band one Summer where he claims a music industry goon insensitively declared it was a career ending move. Squier knows all about those kinds of moves and is girding his drawstring pants for the future. Possibly another couple of songs, who knows? Maybe we'll hear an entire new Billy Squier.
