When You Are Wild

Thursday, April 29, 08:00 pm on Vermont PBS | Duration: 0:29 | Airings

Homeless for close to a decade, Willis never gave up on his dream to be a famous rock star. In the 1980s, he befriended the members of the band Phish who were attending Goddard College in his hometown of Plainfield. This friendship led to the drummer of Phish, Jon Fishman, to help him with his dream by not only playing drums for him when he could, but also inviting him to open up for Phish in Albany in front of 20,000 people. Willis was never able to catch a break outside of Vermont, but when the word got around that he was diagnosed with cancer and needed help, his fans and friends came out of the woodwork to support him as he headlined his own benefit show.
