You must mean "d? 1982?" I'm guessing he was born in the late 1940's. I am not sure about the year of death. You are probably close.

Bill Hodgson was a hero to me, as were all the members of Shadowfax, but Bill in particular. Tall and lanky, too shy for his talent, he didn't stand out until he took the stage. A great guitar player, sure without a doubt, but an extraordinary blues singer to boot. I have a high quality tape of Shadowfax's in-studio live performance on Fred Zelenka's "Gone But Not Forgotten" Saturday night show on WDET-FM that remains an astounding musical document. Bill could be smooth and Bill could snarl and growl. I knew him only from saying hi at the bar, but I would hear many stories about him (let's face it, the Corridor is RIFE with heavy-duty gossip, it's the local sport!) and I was deeply saddened by his death--he seemed the kind of guy I would have liked to know better.

i can't remember the first time i layed eyes on bill but i will never for get him and how f'in good he could play the gitar he allways seemed a little awkward in his stance but don't we all.
i remember the painting he made of some girl who trashed his ass but the painting was so great that it was unmistakably a trimph in bill's art.
