In reply to: ! 's message, "I've got an album of Billy Adams recordings titled "Rock Pretty Mama" that states in the liner notes "Billy Adams died on Dec. 3, 1984. He was 47 years old."" on Tuesday, April 02, 11:44:04am

In Nashville there was a local singer named Billy Adams, who played rockabilly in a number of local bar bands. He told people that he was the other Billy Adams,, even going so far as to playing some of the other Billy Adams's songs. Most people didn't know what Billy Adams looked like, so the deception was an easy one.. So when the imposter died, it was reported erroneously that the real Billy Adams had passed, and thanks to obscurity,, no one was really the wiser for several months after the fact.
