Clearly November 30 is a great day to be born. In addition to being the birthday of Ridley Scott, Ben Stiller, Robert Guillaume and Dick Clark, it’s also rocker Billy Idol’s birthday. I can’t say Billy Idol is super friendly, but if you caught him at the right time, you might be able to squeeze an autograph out of him. Regardless, I love his music so much (except for that really horrible cover of “LA Woman” by the Doors) and he’s always great in concert. It’s especially amazing that after drug addiction and a really bad motorcycle crash, Billy Idol made a full recovery and is still able to rock. It’s hard to pick a favorite Billy Idol song, but I definitely think before the day is over I’ll listen to “Rebel Yell,” “Blue Highway,” “Catch My Fall” and “Flesh For Fantasy.” Happy birthday, Billy!!
