Billy Idol
© Kai Rune Storhagen

It's a nice day to start again, apparently: platinum punk poser Billy Idol is back, after a few quiet years sitting on the pile of money he's earned for hits including 'Dancing With Myself', 'Eyes Without a Face', 'Rebel Yell' and of course 'White Wedding'. His latest album (a Christmas record called 'Happy Holidays' with a frankly terrifying record sleeve) came out way back in 2006, but he's due to release a new record called 'Kings & Queens of the Underground' this year, recorded with The Buggles of all people and accompanied by an autobiography. Idol's touring band still includes the legendary Steve Stevens, and as long as he's bleached his roots properly no-one in the audience tonight will notice his leathery face: they'll be too busy crying 'more, more more!'. Although 'the midnight hour' might be a bit late to pay the babysitter nowadays.
