Reviews & Opinions

STEVE TAYLOR, SMASH HITS, OCTOBER 16 - 29, 1980: Another sudden reappearance, this time from the Bashful Poser himelf. A stronger larynx, a shorter name, a new drummer and an anonymous guitarist help make Billy Idol sound - for once - like the star he's always tried to hard to appear. Hard, melodic, excelelnt: viability at last!

Additional Notes

This is the first version of 'Dancing WIth Myself'; it was later re-recorded for Kiss Me Deadly
