Billy Idol was born William Michael Albert Broad in Stanmore, North London in 1955. He moved to New York as a child and returned to the UK to affirm himself as a central figure of the British punk movement. His music, image and attitude have stood the test of time and transcended fashion and trends; after fronting seminal punk outfit Generation X – who split in 1981 – Idol embraced dance and rock penning, 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. From punk rebel to mainstream rock hero, there’s no territory Billy Idol left unconquered.
