DANCING WITH MYSELF IS RELEASED!

Billy Idol’s long-awaited autobiography Dancing With Myself is released today!

An early architect of punk rock’s sound, style, and fury, whose lip-curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into pop’s mainstream as one of MTV’s first megastars, Billy Idol remains to this day a true rock ’n’ roll icon.

Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, Dancing With Myself, he delivers an electric, searingly honest account of his journey to fame—from his early days as frontman of the pioneering UK punk band Generation X to the decadent life atop the dance-rock kingdom he led—all rendered with the in-your-face attitude and fire his fans have embraced for decades. Beyond adding his uniquely qualified perspective to the evolution of rock and culture, Idol is a brash, lively chronicler of his own career.

Featuring sixteen pages of behind-the-scenes photos, Dancing With Myself is a survivor’s story at its heart, but also an enchanting, sometimes chilling, and always riveting account of

STEVE STEVENS FEATURED IN PREMIER GUITAR

Steve Stevens talk to Premier Guitar about his work on the new Billy Idol album, Kings & Queens of the Underground, developing his signature style and tons more.

Premier Guitar: How’d you go from playing on the beach and in garages to working with Billy Idol?
Steve Stevens: By the early 1980s, I was living in New York City and playing in a band called the Fine Malibus. Bill Aucoin, who was also Kiss’ manager, managed us. But things weren’t really happening for us. So at one point I got a call to go to a meeting with Billy Idol, who was ready to put something together in the United States. At that time I hadn’t met any real rock stars, and it was exciting to be

EXCLUSIVE BOOK PREVIEW AT TIME.COM

Time.com is offering readers this exclusive preview of the prologue from Billy’s autobiography, Dancing With Myself:

They say if you hear the bang, you’re still alive

By the morning of February 6, 1990, I’d been living on a fine edge for more than a decade, always courting disaster to experience the biggest high. I’d been living the deranged life. I felt so nihilistic, yet why hadn’t I just tuned in and dropped…

UPDATE FROM BILLY 9.26.14

It’s a wildly exciting time right now with the book and album finally reaching a conclusion and near being released. It’s great you are hearing ‘Can’t Break Me Down’. It was a fun song to record. We recorded at Greg Kurstins’ home studio and Steve Stevens was putting his guitars on it on the evening of the day my Dad passed away, August 7th… a very sad time… but also thrilling as I know Dad was in the room making sure this album we have made was up to scratch! It was his favorite album of mine as he

BILLY IDOL TALKS SEX PISTOLS

Billy Idol recently visited Dennis Morris’ “The Bollocks”, a photo exhibit of the iconic photographer’s work highlighting the musical revolution sparked by the Sex Pistols in 1977. Billy Idol was famously one of the band’s first fans as part of the “Bromley Contingent” with other future punk icons Siouxsie Sioux and Steve Severin of the Banshees. Billy spoke with Revolt TV at the opening of the exhibit on his early experiences following the Sex Pistols, a subject covered in his forthcoming autobiography Dancing With Myself (October 7, 2014 via Touchstone).

In the interview with Revolt TV, Billy says, “England was severely depressed. There was nothing really, nothing for anybody. ‘No future, no future for you,’ as Johnny sang in “God Save The Queen.” We really took that to heart, we really believed it. And we thought, if there

TOUR DIARY #5

ROCKING THE CASTLES OF EUROPE!

The rescheduled show in Belgrade starts off the fourth week of our Summer European tour. Completely rained out yesterday, it’s a totally different story today – blue skies, blazing sun… looks like we’ll actually get this one done tonight! But first of all… “Hurry up and WAIT”!! That’s the universal mating call of the TV Show. We jump into vans and get shuttled over to a TV station (I will confess to still not knowing what the station was, or what the show was either) where we walk in, immediately get ready to perform ‘Dancing’ and ‘Rebel Yell’ and then sit down… and wait. Waiting is the name of the game in TV – camera blocking, wardrobe and make up, technical issues – they all combine to make it a waiting game. This is fine for me – I check my emails, see what trouble I can get into (none this time, but I’m always on the look out!) and then eventually they shuffle the enthusiastic audience onto the set and it’s time to shoot. Both songs sound great and
