Name Origin:
His name was inspired by a school teacher's description of him as "idle".

In an interview on November 21st, 1983, Idol also tells us that the name "was a bit of a goof, but also part of the old English school of rock. Billy Fury and all that. It was a 'double thing' not just a poke at the superstar-like people. It was the whole sort of - everyone was doing it too – it was fun, you know?".

He went on to say the name "didn't really ever backfire, only with the stupid people who took it seriously".

Billy Idol Quotes:
I'd really been rockin' for - let's see, I started in '75, so I'd been going for like twenty years by '95, so it wasn't such a crazy thing to just take a step back. Now I've put together my road show and my music again, one way or another. The first step was that I got back with (guitarist Steve Stevens. The next step was I found my drummer Brian Tichy and then, it took me a few years to get back up to steam, so to speak. Actually, we've been back on the road since 2000. 

I do exactly what I do every other day. I always sing a bit every day, not necessarily the songs in the show, but I sit with my guitar and I sing for a couple of hours throughout the day - it keeps your voice alive. Also, I made a sort of bargain with myself a few years ago, which is that if I want to get f*cked up, I have to work out! That was another thing that saved me. So I'm always in some form of training, thinking about what I'm going to be doing. But I can also fall off the wagon if that's what everybody wants!
