Last summer in an exclusive interview with The Rock Revival, guitarist and collaborator Steve Stevens said that he and Idol had been in the studio working on new material and that a new album was on the horizon. That summer, Idol was touring to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his landmark album, Rebel Yell. Billy Idol recently played a few select U.S. shows, and is currently on tour in Europe. His self-written autobiography, Dancing With Myself, is due out on October 7 via Touchstone, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, Inc. Billy Idol released his self-titled debut album in 1982. The following year, he exploded into the mainstream with his sophomore effort, Rebel Yell. The album hit #6 on the Billboard Top 200 and has since gone multi-platinum. Idol’s next two albums also debuted in the Top 25 on Billboard. To date, he has sold over  20 million albums worldwide and garnered three Grammy Award nominations. – by Matt Bishop
