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.

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 ofSee More›

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

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…See More›
