This might strike you with a little bit of a surprise but I have been a fan of the music of Billy Idol since I first heard his 1981 debut solo release “Don’t Stop”. Mind you I was still quite the Rocker and the burgeoning Metalhead back then but based on some of the folks that I was jamming with I developed an appreciation of the musical offerings of the all too infectious Idol without any hesitation. That said I am pretty stoked to announce that today at noon, Mr. Idol will be signing copies of his brand new autobiography “Dancing With Myself” at the Fifth Avenue Barnes and Noble. The book was officially released yesterday but you will need to purchase one at the B&N in order to participate in this cool event. Check out the cover of the book and the press copy that I snagged from his official website.
