See? Billy Idol Gets It.

29 Oct

Billy Idol is the coolest. This legendary rocker proves to us once again that he gets it.

A ‘super fan’ from Seattle contacted Billy a couple of years back to see if he would play a concert for his birthday. Since the rocker gets tons of requests like this, he had to turn it down for obvious reasons. But Seattle based super fan, Michael Henrichsen was not hearing it so he spent the past 2 years convincing Billy as to why he should play his birthday party. And it worked.

Henrichsen has an 80’s cover band so by staging some charity concerts called ‘Billy Idol Aid’, they were able to raise $13,000 for a food bank and the Red Cross. Their efforts are why Billy said yes. They packed the Showbox SoDo Club on Friday night and rocked the house. The rocker says he hopes this concert gets his fans to see a different side of him, which I think is super sweet.

Billy Idol is also a long time vegetarian. So, See? Billy Idol Gets It 😉

    Never realised Billy Idol was a vegetarian – doesn’y go with his hell raising image I guess! Thanks for the dispelling that myth.

      I know, right? When I found out I was caught off guard as well.
      In fact most of the people I find to be vegetarian, catch me off guard 🙂
