Billy Idol Biography

From punk pioneer to global superstar, Billy Idol has left an indelible mark in popular music and remained a household name for over three decades. 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.

His style, music, and attitude have transcended time and trend. Born in 1955 in Stanmore, North London, Idol spent several formative years living on Long Island, NY, as a child before returning to the UK and emerging as a central figure of the British punk movement. As part of the infamous Bromley Contingent and a fan of the Sex Pistols, Idol was inspired to front the pioneering British punk band Generation X from 1976 until the band’s split in 1981. Determined to break through in America, Billy Idol hooked up with guitar genius Steve Stevens and a crucial musical partnership was forged. Billy Idol has created some of rock-n-roll’s most enduring anthems including “White Wedding,” “Dancing With Myself,” “Flesh For Fantasy,” “Hot In the City,” “Eyes Without A Face,” “Rebel Yell” and “Cradle of Love,” among others.

In late February 2020, Idol starred in a public service campaign titled "Billy Never Idles," intended to fight the unnecessary idling of automobile engines in New York City, to reduce air pollution. Idol teamed with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio to open the campaign, which features Idol saying "If you're not driving, shut your damn engine off!" and other strong advice.

Idol was featured as a guest vocalist on the song "Night Crawling" from Miley Cyrus' album Plastic Hearts released in November 2020. On 12 August 2021, Idol's music video "Bitter Taste," directed by Stephen Sebring, was uploaded to YouTube. Idol announced his new EP "The Roadside" to be released in the same year.
