ABOUT BILLY IDOL AND STEVE STEVENS
Idol, together with Stevens at his side, was an early architect of the sound, style and fury of punk rock. His lip-curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into the mainstream as one of MTV’s first megastars, making him one of the most recognizable faces in pop music, while selling out arenas everywhere he played. He has sold 40 million albums while scoring numerous platinum albums worldwide, nine top forty singles in the U.S. and 10 in the U.K. including “Dancing With Myself, “White Wedding,” “Rebel Yell,” “Mony Mony,” “Eyes Without A Face,” and “Flesh For Fantasy” as well as a New York Times bestselling autobiography, Dancing With Myself.
Stevens is one of the most versatile guitarists and songwriters to emerge from the ’80s rock scene, with influences spanning from classic rock to flamenco. In addition to his legendary career with Idol, Stevens has worked with some of the biggest names in music, from Michael Jackson to Robert Palmer, Joni Mitchell to PINK. Stevens won a Grammy Award for his work on “Top Gun Anthem” and his songs can be heard on countless soundtracks including Once Upon A Time In Mexico and The Matrix Trilogy.
Idol’s most recent record releases, which all feature contributions from Stevens, include his latest studio album Kings & Queens Of The Underground produced by two time Grammy Award winner Greg Kurstin, a 2016 vinyl-only live album entitled BFI Live and the 2018 remix collection Vital Idol: Revitalized which debuted in the top ten of the Billboard Dance Chart.
