Bellamy also has a brand-new podcast called “Top Biillin’ with Bill Bellamy,” and it’s taken off in a major way.
“It’s one of those waves in your career that you know you just really thankful and grateful, you know. It’s always, you know, up and down and twisting and turning… right now it’s a really cool wave of great projects that I’ve, you know, did a year ago, worked on, cut a deal,” said Bellamy.

The movie star said all the “seeds” he has planted have come up simultaneously, which is a blessing because “you never know how things are gonna go,” he noted. Bellamy has a book coming out. He said he would be a best-selling author in less than nine or ten months from now.
During the pandemic, Bellamy worked on his book. He said he reflected on his life and all of his interviews over the years, including interviewing Harvey. He said a lot of big stars he interviewed are no longer here.
Bellamy said many people are interested in the stories that he tells. They want to know what Tupac was really like or what Michael Jackson looked like up close. Bellamy said the podcast is based on stories from people like Harvey, the innovators.
