With his eternally peroxided blond mane and his impeccable leathers, this artist from Stanmore, Middlesex, still has his looks at sixty-two. Punk singer for Generation X in the 1970s, Billy Idol was then one of the most influential artists on early MTV. A sexy devil, perfectly nasty, this former member of Sex Pistols entourage the ‘Bromley Contingent’ churned out massively dominant pop-rock hits in the 1980s: “Flesh for Fantasy” and “Dancing With Myself”. More discreet in the nineties, Billy once again made waves. Eight years ago, he blew the Stravinski away with a version of “Rebel Yell” as an encore. Since then, he recorded Kings & Queens of theUnderground with Trevor Horn, “The Man Who Invented the Eighties”. Serious stuff.
