ABOUT BILLY IDOL
Billy Idol was an early architect of the sound, style, and fury of Punk Rock. His lip- curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into the mainstream as one of MTV’s first megastars, making him one of the most recognizable faces in Pop music. He has sold 40 million albums while scoring numerous platinum albums worldwide, nine top 40 singles in the U.S. and 10 in the U.K., including “Dancing With Myself, “White Wedding,” “Rebel Yell,” “Mony Mony,” “Eyes Without A Face,” “Flesh For Fantasy,” and “Cradle Of Love.” Billy was responsible for some of Punk Rock’s most memorable, literate, and evocative moments and created a pioneering new sound by bringing the spirit of ’77 to the dance floor, going on to fashion an immediately identifiable musical blueprint that integrates club-land throb, rockabilly desperation, and Rock’n’Roll decadence.
Billy Idol’s 2014 New York Times bestselling autobiography Dancing With Myself is an electric, intelligent, brutally honest and entirely self-written account of Billy Idol’s journey to fame, from his early days as front man of the pioneering U.K. punk band Generation X to a long and often decadent life lived loving sex, drugs, Rock’n’Roll.
Billy Idol, together with his band featuring his longtime guitarist Steve Stevens, has performed at marquee music festivals and has sold out concert tours around the world for the past 37 years.
