I lived in Rosine for many many years and Mr. Bill never visited his family or friends. In fact, if it were not for the money that his celebrity brings to Rosine, I doubt he would be missed by many residents of the town.

My that is harsh, but who am I to say, I didn't know him and haven't been to Rosine.

I do enjoy bluegrass music on occasion, however.
