Billy Idol hits the big five-oh
Shocker of the week: Billy Idol turns 50 years old today. Noooo! Oh, the humanity! Born William Broad, Billy Idol first made waves with Generation X before pursuing his solo career. (Say thanks to MTV, Mr. Broad.) Though Gina and I love Bad Billy, we wish he'd take "Mony, Mony" and bury in a coffee can six feet under and never ever sing it again. Billy, how about a little more "Blue Highway" or "Untouchables" instead?
Happy birthday, Mr. Idol. We'll always love you for your classic scene in "The Wedding Singer!"
