Billy Idol promises to write book
Billy Idol has promised to write an autobiography.
The bleached-blond punk rocker will pen a story of sex and drugs and 24-hour madness.
The book will be called Dancing With Myself, in honour of his 1980s smash hit single.
The 54-year-old singer says in a statement he's "going out on a limb here - so watch my back".
Simon & Schuster division Touchstone announced Billy's memoir will come out in late 2011 or early 2012.
The musician first found fame with the punk band Generation X.
He became an international solo star in the early days of MTV with hits including Rebel Yell and Flesh For Fantasy.
