Billy Idol Talks ‘Dancing With Myself’ Autobiography on Kevin & Bean

Billy Idol called in to The Kevin & Bean Show today (10/7) to talk about his new autobiography Dancing With Myself, which hit stores today. Get more info and pick up a copy here.

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 one man’s creative drive joining forces with unbridled human desire, this startling memoir is unmistakably literary in its character and brave in its sheer willingness to tell. Billy Idol is destined to emerge as one of the great writers among his musical peers.

Billy Idol also has a new album coming out October 21 titled ‘Kings & Queens Of The Underground,’ which you can pre-order here.
