46 years into his recording career, Billy Idol is still the ever–moving myth he’s been since he first stepped on stage.
His name was supposed to be “Idle” – but someone wrote it wrong. “Idol.” And that’s what he became: An idol. But this idol is not made of stone. And he’s certainly not stuck on a pedestal to be done and dusted. Billy Idol insists on being today’s news, not just yesterday’s memory. And if you think Idol is Idle, you haven’t heard “The Cage” EP.
“The Cage” EP is his latest on Dark Horse Records. It’s four tracks that engage you like classic Idol, yet keep your eyebrows raised like you’re hearing the loud music coming out of our teenager’s room.
Billy Idol has a lengthy career with so many hits. It’s almost hard to pick from his stellar lineup. But there are definitely songs that are must-hears for us. The punk-rocker is sure to light up the MMRBQ stage and make us dance (but not with ourselves).
