A Perfect Circle’s Billy Howerdel Reveals Which Song He’s Most Proud Of Writing


Billy Howerdel has revealed which song he is most proud of writing as part of a newly shared feature with Kerrang!. Howerdel, who just released his new solo album “What Normal Was“, took part in the aforementioned publication’s ‘The 10 Songs That Changed My Life’ series, sharing several key tracks from his journey in music.

In addition to offering tales from his time as a guitar tech for Nine Inch Nails and more, he revealed that the song he’s most proud of penning is “Orestes“, from A Perfect Circle‘s platinum-selling debut album “Mer de Noms“.

Speaking of it, he offered:

“To me, it’s the overture for A Perfect Circle. You get the picture of where we’re coming from as a band. I’m particularly proud of that track, and it’s the one song that my father, who passed away in 2000, commented on and said he liked. Getting accolades or acknowledgement, especially about music, from a hard-to-please dad seals the deal on that one.”
