Billy Idol for The Saturday Times

Dan Burn-Forti

Dan shot Billy Idol for The Saturday Times in a spread entitled ‘Sex, Drugs and The Boy from Bromley’.

“Generation X’s Valley of the Dolls was one of my favourite albums as a youth so when asked to photograph Billy I was very keen, and also kind of curious to see how the intervening 30 odd years had been to the fellow. But amazingly he looked pretty damned good really. Despite a legendary rock and roll lifestyle of 80’s and 90’s excess, he seemed fit as a fiddle and charming to boot. So the obvious lesson to take from this kids, is that a life of sex and drugs and rock and roll is the way ahead.”
