Album Notes
On Bill Toms' 3rd solo CD "This Old World", Toms gives the listener a personal account of life on the road, family, friends, and relationships.

Bill Toms has been a member of the legendary band, Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers for the past 18 years.

He continues to record and tour with the Houserockers while writing and recording his own songs.

Not only has Bill sharpened his writing skills with " This Old World", the live show is a true Rock N' Roll experience.

This is a Cd about making choices.

Choices about relationships( " Girl Like You") , ( " What's a Man to Do") .

Choices about family ( " Dying to Live Again") and trying to come to terms with our past( " Million Miles From Home"), ( " Born ON the Steets Of Heartache").

The pivotal point of the Cd would have to be the everyday heroes that Bill introduces the listener to in the title track.

These are real characters with great depth.

Something we don't see that often in the music industry in the year 2001.

Pgh Post Gazette

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Twenty-some years into living the rock 'n' roll lifestyle, Hard Rain's Bill Toms has emerged from all those early morning drives with a healthier perspective on his dream, a perspective that fuels a number of the hardest-hitting tracks on Hard Rain's latest effort, "This Old World."

Keith Kondrich

In a perfect world this album would be on Billboard's Top 10 List!
Buy this CD now! This album celebrates life’s daily struggles and little victories with eloquent lyrics and subtly powerful melodies. Don't waste your money on another over-commercialized, over-produced, over-marketed collection of formula songs designed for Top-40 radio play. Bill Toms is the Real Deal!
