I remember this interview well. It aired on August 27, 1982. I've always been a big fan and admirer of Bill's, and I don't think he was trying to be mean; just trying to be funny. However, I also believe he was drunk at the time. I agree with you about Aileen's performance; I always admired the way she handled herself during this interview under rather tough conditions! And the Annie medley was typical Aileen--superb and second to none. I thought it was funny that Bill was so aloof to what was going on that he was pouring ice tea for himself while she was singing!!
