show more a certain age,Billy Idol will forever stand as the ultimate punk-rock icon of the 1980s.His leather outfits and peroxide blonde mohawk became a signature look that was seen by millions of viewers as he dominated the MTV generation.William Michael Albert Broad was born in England in 1955 and adopted the stage name Billy Idol after a teacher's school report stated William is idle.After a short stint in America as a child,Idol returned to the UK where he was educated at Worthing High School for Boys and then a year at Brighton Polytechnic.By 1975,Idol had immersed himself in punk music,joining the Bromley Contingent of Sex Pistols fans, a group of followers dedicated to the band.His close attachment to the Sex Pistols inspired Idol to join his first punk band,Siouxsie and the Banshees before moving on to Chelsea in 1977 where he met Tony James.Together with John Towe they formed Generation X,and whilst they didn't achieve the fame or notoriety of the Sex Pistols,the group released several albums and were one of the first punk bands to appear on the BBC's Top Of The Pops.Internal disputes over which musical direction Generation X should take lead to a split of the band,and Idol moved to New York to pursue a solo career.It proved a masterstroke,as Idol's management recognised his bad-boy image would appeal to the new wave of young music TV viewers.By 1983 Idol's lip-curl,pop-punk music and charisma poured out of the TV screen and made him an instant worldwide superstar with hits like White Wedding,Eyes Without A Face and of course Rebel Yell.The remainder of the 80s was a golden age for Idol as he performed to thousands in sell-out concerts and to millions watching around the world,clocking up impressive record sales as he went.The ironically titled Charmed Life was released in 1990 and it heralded a change in Idol's fortunes both personally and professionally.A serious motorcycle accident saw him nearly lose a leg and his popularity was beginning to wane. It culminated in the 1993 release of Cyperpunk,a project close to Idol's heart but one roundly condemned by critics,perhaps contributing to his well-documented drug overdose in 1994.
