    Default Billy Idol Thread

    So what does everyone think about the new Billy Idol, Scream??? He has a new album coming out March 22nd titled Devil's Playground. It sounds like classic Idol & the guitar solo rips - but definitely a bit cheesy. I would still go see him though - haven't since the Whiplash Smile tour.

    Yes, I saw his performance on ABC New Year's Eve and the song was a bit cheesy, but vintage Idol and it rocked! Steve Stevens' tone was to die for. The version on the website is bad sound quality, but it's still a good tune. I'll definitely buy the new album and go to see him when they tour.

    Only got to see the New Year's Eve performances, haven't heard anything yet! I'd like to see something along the line of Whiplash Smile.

    Classic Billy! Looking forward to the new release. Steve Stevens still one of the most underrated axeman around. Eddie has always praised him and for good reason.

    Thanks for the link. I love old Billy, but this song really pales in comparison to his classic melody and lyrical ability. I think he could do much better, and blame the Producer who ever it may have been.

    the production of Whiplash Smile just screams "80's", with the drum machines and sequenced bass. i still like it though.

    longtime Idol producer Keith Forsey produced the new disc.

    Heard his new song the other night. Sounds cut from the exact same cloth as "White Wedding". Other than that, not a bad tune.

    Billy Idol Fans? Great new guitar driven music in stores on March 22nd.

    Hey fellow music fans. Want a glimpse of great new rock music from Billy Idol and Steve Stevens? Check out this link. The AOL sessions are awesome. Billy performs a few new tunes and some old stuff. The band sounds awesome. This is the kind of music I have been waiting for. It is a total guitar driven album. Consider buying the record on March 22nd. It is titled Devil's playground! And don't miss his live show when it comes around. The man is truly one of a kind and anlike other aging rockers he sounds awesome live.

    Note: The whole freakin' site rocks! However, the new stuff is under AOL sessions.
