The highs were high, and Nikki’s journal entries reveal some euphoria and joy.

He spent days—sometimes alone, sometimes with other addicts, friends, and lovers—in a coke- and heroin-fueled daze. But the lows were lower, often ending with Nikki in his closet, surrounded by drug paraphernalia and wrapped in paranoid delusions.

Dancing with Myself

Touchstone #ad - I am hopelessly divided between the dark and the good, the sex maniac and the monk, the rebel and the saint, the poet and the priest, the demagogue and the populist. Now, idol delivers an electric, dancing with myself, in his new york times bestselling autobiography, “refreshingly honest” Daily News, New York account of his journey to fame—from his early days as front man of the pioneering UK punk band Generation X to the decadent life atop the dance-rock kingdom he ruled—delivered with the same in-your-face attitude and fire his fans have embraced for decades.

A rolling stone top 10 best music books of the year “that’s what i’m talking about…Of all these memoirs, Dancing With Myself was the only one that stimulated my envy—made me want to be Billy Idol for five minutes…. He’s a genuine romantic, writing in a kind of overheated journalese about his London punk rock roots…and then falling head over heels for America” James Parker, The New York Times Book Review.

Dancing with Myself #ad - An early architect of punk rock’s sound, whose lip-curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into pop’s mainstream as one of MTV’s first megastars, Billy Idol remains, to this day, and fury, style, a true rock ‘n’ roll icon. I’m going on out a limb here, so watch my back. Billy Idol.

With it, billy idol is destined to emerge as one of the great writers among his musical peers. Beyond adding his uniquely qualified perspective to the story of the evolution of rock, Idol is a brash, lively chronicler of his own career. A survivor’s tale at its heart, this sometimes chilling and always riveting account of one man’s creative drive joining forces with unbridled human desire is unmistakably literary in its character and brave in its sheer willingness to tell.
