Chapter 4 Summary: “Debut (1973–1975)”

After months of working hard on their first album, The Six set off on their first tour. Teddy and Billy become closer as they work on mixing and perfecting the album together. Billy is struck by Teddy’s insight, and Teddy is inspired by the music, calling it “ineffable. If I could define it, I wouldn’t have any use for it” (55). The night they’re set to leave, Camila reveals that she is pregnant, and she and Billy get married that same night. Billy is torn about his feelings about becoming a father due to his past with his own father. The idea of fatherhood shakes Billy up. Graham says, “This word that we equated with deadbeat, asshole, alcoholic. Now it described Billy, too. He was supposed to find a way to make that word fit onto him” (62).

Billy is so shaken by his impending fatherhood that he throws himself into the rock star life, with more alcohol, more drugs, and more women. Billy, at first surprised by his own indiscretions, comes to realize that “you possess the very dangerous information that you can break the rule and the world won’t instantly come to an end” (66).
