    • I take your point but there is such a thing as freedom of speech. Humans are naturally bitchy. It is the human condition and one reason why animals are better than humans some might argue.

    • You don’t believe it? You could be right but I see no reason why she should lie unless she wants to try and hurt him…but so many years later? I hope Billy leaves a comment.

  1. I agree, AA!

    My condolences to Michael upon learning of this disheartening tail, regardless of the influence of alcohol or drugs. People claim that blood is thicker than water, but in my experience, and apparently yours also, that only applies to science, not reality. Michael, you have more than made up for Billy’s disgraceful act. Thank you for all that you, and those like you, do for animals.

      • I hate to say it, but I bet it is true. Especially if it was fueled with drugs or alcohol, and just the rage in his music seem to be an extension of his nature. It would be interesting to find out if it is true, but I’ll bet he would never tell you. Even if you tried.

  2. Drugs and alcohol abuse can change behavior, and he may not have been an animal (cat) lover to begin with. Do we know? Did he have pets as a child?

    Many fans would be shocked at this. He may not have been famous if this happened in the beginning of his career, regardless of his talent. But that’s just my guess.

  3. Michael….You don’t get to choose your relatives. This was more than 30 years ago. It is no more dreadful than every other instance of animal abuse. You didn’t know about it then. Although I can only imagine your shame at being in any way connected to such a person, rest assured that if you had known, we can all be sure you would have reacted strongly. According to our records here, he is WILLIAM Michael Albert Broad: not exactly your namesake.

    • I was shocked this morning when I read this. He should have been like me in terms of being incapable of even thinking about being cruel to animals. Not sure what happened as his parents were nice people.
