I'm not sure we can be certain Billy was the other person considered. There is a good chance- I can envisage Mick asking Neil Finn but also Billy as an insurance choice. Given the two, probably more publicity would be generated by Neil Finn so it was would have been a no-brainer on Micks part.
It could have been somebody else though. At a similar time that Neil was at Micks restaurant performing with Mick and the House band Brian Johnson (ex-AC/DC) was also there performing with them. I think he was interviewing Mick for a documentary but perhaps he was considered for Fleetwood Mac too at the same time.
