Billy Idol Working On His Memoir



Legendary rocker Billy Idol has started working on his memoir, after he landed a deal.

Singer’s Dancing With Myself autobiography is expected to be released in October 2014.

In the biography, the legendary star will remember his “remarkable life story” from his “transient childhood to his seminal role in the U.K. punk movement, to his meteoric rise as one of MTV’s first megastars”.

His spokesman announced, “He’ll be revealing never-before-told tales of the culture, sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll that coloured his experience as he vaulted to the top of the rock kingdom.”

The book project will be launched by the singer on Thursday, May 29 at annual book publishing convention BookExpo America in New York before starting a summer tour.

The book is named after his 1980 solo smash.

According to a press release, the book is “bold, searingly candid and written by Idol himself in his inimitable voice,” as he writes about his entire life story, beginning with his “transient childhood” to his days in the punk movement to his unexpected domination in the MTV era.

Myself will feature tales of the “culture, sex, drugs and rock & roll” that defined the star’s life and career.

Billy dominated at last year’s Bonnaroo festival, playing a high-voltage “party set” that explored his deep catalog.

He hopped onstage during the Superjam to perform the T. Rex classic “Bang a Gong (Get It On)” with a group of artists, including My Morning Jacket’s Jim James and Hall & Oates’ John Oates.
