I recall that. I didn't know it was Bill Stroud that was going to build someone their "dream cue". That was a while ago and I forgot who the cue builder was.Fuck Bill Stroud... I couldn't give a shit less about anything that piece of shit has done.
remember the "design your dream".
"There is a thread here on AZ,I recall that. I didn't know it was Bill Stroud that was going to build someone their "dream cue". That was a while ago and I forgot who the cue builder was.
No problem, glad to oblige you.Not defending what happened but i do know he went thru a lot of cancer stuff in those days. Must be nice to be perfect. I knew when posting this that someone would step up and hammer a dead cuemaking legend. Congrats for being first.
whats Jr. Harris is up to these days? I assume/hope he's still kickin.My wife and I became good friends in the 70's and went to dinner with Bill & Barb quite few times. We were young, firing on all cylinders, together we spent time at their home in the early 80's/barbeque and good wine. Been to Billys shop in the early yrs on Garden of the Gods/Colorado Springs before he moved it too his home. The business front/bldg had a GC in this work space . Billy was also our 8 ball team mate ''Bank Shot Wizards'' + Scott the Shot Smith captain, JR Harris, myself, Carl Nelson and Brett the Jet Scotts younger brother. During those early 80's Stroud shot above 900 every year. Those years, there was no BIH and A break scratch was ''in the kitchen''.
I'm guessing some people don't realize how sick Bill was and others are just jerks. The man died from the big C and people still think he was faking it apparently.I seem to remember that the guy who won understood why Bill wasn’t able to follow through and was okay with it. It was all the losers that couldn’t let it go. Glad I killed that thread. Best thing I’ve done on AZB.
Only one or two people have piled on. They need to let it go. Picking on someone that got cancer because they happen to see him play pool one time is BS. That's my opinion. Then creating a Shame Thread to relive it was poor taste and pathetic. The thread needed to go. I enjoyed the Bill Stroud video that you posted. It shows a lot that Bill did and who he knew and played with. Really sad when people have to tear down somebody that got cancer. Hopefully they don't have a similar experience, but you know what they say, Karma's a biotch. Or something like that.I apologize guys. I thought maybe people wouldn't pile on a dead guy. Looks like i was wrong. I saw this on Tor's YT page and thought some guys in my age bracket would like it. It really must be nice to be perfect. ATTN MOD: feel free to remove this thread any time you want.
