yeah. not a bad voice. except for when he would scream like a 12 year old girl..
that and the look totally destroyed his career. it worked for a minute, but got played out real quick..

I do enjoy one of his songs once in a while tho.

Billy Idol owes his success largely to the songwriting, riffwriting and production skills of Steve Stevens imho.

Samplehead, thank you dude!!

Its a crime if a thread about Billy Idol doesn't mention Steve Stevens.

I saw them live in 2002 in Boston. WOW!
