Billy Idol on “indulging” women

Billy Idol has revealed that although he has given up the rock and roll vices of drugs and alcohol, he still can’t help himself when it comes to beautiful women.

The 'White Wedding' singer claimed that chemical excess left him “burned out” in the 80s, but he still allows himself to “indulge” when it comes to women.

Billy told Spinner.co.uk: “I stopped doing a lot of the things that burnt me out. I gave up all the drugs, all the booze, but I'm still into women."

Idol adds: “That's one thing I don't mind indulging, but I don't feel like I am burning myself out, burning the candle at both ends. I have it under control and I’m still very much excited about what I do.”

The singer is currently touring with Steve Stevens, playing his solo material.
