Idol’s place in rock & roll history is one of legend: born William Michael Albert Broad in Middlesex, England, his tale is an extraordinary one. From a childhood spent between Long Island, NY and the UK of the ‘60s/‘70s, Idol’s brash, bold and searingly honest voice has been embraced by fans worldwide. Idol first took his moniker back in 1976 as part of seminal London band Generation X. Years of in-your-face attitude and fire are all across hits including ‘To Be A Lover’, ‘Mony Mony’, ‘Sweet Sixteen’, ‘Cradle Of Love’, ‘L.A. Woman’, ‘Don’t Need A Gun’, ‘Hot In The City’, ‘Save Me Now’… songs that instantly catapulted Idol on a meteoric rise to stardom.
