Coming on October 7th is Billy Idol’s autobiography, Dancing With Myself. According to the press release, the memoir -- which covers his childhood in England, his punk days fronting Generation X, throughout his MTV heyday and beyond -- reveals, "never-before-told tales of the culture, sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll that colored Idol’s experience as he vaulted to the top of the rock kingdom. Billy Idol is the original punk rocker who found a way to take that sneering punk attitude into the pop and rock mainstream, carving out songs that have lasted a lifetime. . . From punk pioneer to global superstar, William Michael Albert Broad, aka Billy Idol, has left an indelible mark in popular music and remained a household name for over three decades."
Billy Idol, who's set to play a few U.S. dates before heading off on a European tour, told us that his live show is specifically built to be a fan pleaser: "It's a lot of fun and I mean, we've got a lot of up-tempo music. I mean, people know a lot of the songs well -- 'Rebel Yell,' 'Dancing With Myself,' 'White Wedding.' But we've also got the other side of things, which are 'Flesh For Fantasy's,' or the 'Eyes Without A Face's' and a lot of the known songs that people know and love."
