An integral member of the punk rock revolution whose music crossed over into '80s pop mainstream--and one of MTV's first stars--Billy Idol remains an iconic music legend. Now, in his long awaited Dancing With Myself, he delivers a lively, candid account of his journey to fame, including intimate and unapologetic details about his life's highs and lows, all rendered with the in your face attitude and exuberance his fans have embraced. Idol brings to life the key events that shaped his life, his music, and his career, including his early childhood in England, his year at Sussex University, and his time spent hanging out with the Sex Pistols and as a member of punk bands Chelsea and Generation X. He shares outtakes from his wildly and unexpectedly successful solo career and stories behind his string of popular hits, including White Wedding, Eyes Without a Face, and Rebel Yell, which involved close collaboration with Steve Stevens and ultimately led to the creation of some of the most groundbreaking music videos ever seen. Featuring sixteen pages of full color, behind the scenes photos, Dancing With Myself is both a tale of survival and a celebration of the heady days when punk was born, a compelling and satisfying insider's tale from a man who made music history firsthand."Review Quotes: "[Idol] proves he's more than a punk sneer and spikyhairdo in this extremely candid autobiography about his personal andprofessional relationships. Who knew he was this deep and self-analytical? Idolleaves you wanting ... 'More! More! More!'"--David. J. Criblez "Newsday "Publisher Marketing: Chosen by "Rolling Stone" as one of the 10 Best Music Books of 2014 "That's what I'm talking about... Of all these memoirs, "Dancing With Myself" was the only one that stimulated my envy--made me want to be Billy Idol for five minutes.... He's a genuine romantic, writing in a kind of overheated journalese about his London punk rock roots...and then falling head over heels for America" (James Parker, "The New York Times Book Review"). 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 "New York Times" bestselling autobiography, "Dancing with Myself, "Idol delivers an electric, "refreshingly honest" ("Daily News, "New York) account of his journey to fame--from his early days as front man of the pioneering UK punk band Generation X to the decadent life atop the dance-rock kingdom he ruled--delivered with the same in-your-face attitude and fire his fans have embraced for decades. Beyond adding his uniquely qualified perspective to the story of the evolution of rock, Idol is a brash, lively chronicler of his own career. A survivor's tale at its heart, this sometimes chilling and always riveting account of one man's creative drive joining forces with unbridled human desire is unmistakably literary in its character and brave in its sheer willingness to tell. With it, Billy Idol is destined to emerge as one of the great writers among his musical peers. "I am hopelessly divided between the dark and the good, the rebel and the saint, the sex maniac and the monk, the poet and the priest, the demagogue and the populist. Pen to paper, I've put it all down, every bit from the heart. I'm going on out a limb here, so watch my back." --Billy Idol Review Citations: New York Times Book Review 12/07/2014 pg. 47 (EAN 9781451628500, Hardcover) Contributor Bio:  Idol, Billy Born William Michael Albert Broad, Billy Idol is a multiplatinum recording artist and two-time Grammy nominee.

Idol's latest release, his first studio album in nearly a decade, is titled "Kings & Queens of the Underground". He lives in Los Angeles.
