    After almost 50 years of career, Billy Idol will be given a place on the “Walk of Fame” in Hollywood on Thursday (January 5th). According to a statement by the Chair of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce the “Rebel Yell” singer will be the first to be honored in 2023. After debuting as the lead singer with British punk band Generation X in 1976, Idol has found success as a solo artist with tracks such as “Dancing With Myself” (1981), “White Wedding” (1982) and “Eyes Without A Face” (1983).

    Most recently, in September of last year, Idol released “The Cage – EP” in collaboration with longtime collaborator and guitarist Steve Stevens.
