If ever there were a man

That could knock me down and drag me away by my hair, while he yells obscenities... that man would be Billy Idol!

Oh how my heart melts when I look at his spiked blond hair, and the sneer on his lips! Pardon me while I compose myself.

I've been a fan for some 20 plus years. I saw Billy Idol in concert twice. The first time, after the show, he walked out on the ledge of the building naked to tell the fans goodbye (yeah, right). The second time was in a bigger arena, outdoors. I was all punked out, wearing my sleeveless, torn Billy Idol t-shirt. Ahhh, the memory.

I can't explain what it is about Billy that makes me swoon. Maybe it is because of his "bad boy" image. You know, the kind of guy your momma warns you about. Or, is it the tight leather pants? The six pack abs? The penetrating look in his eyes (when he doesn't look wasted)? I can't say for sure. Even in his 50's, he's just sooo....

To think too much about what makes Billy Idol my magic man would take the mystery out of it. And I am just a silly school girl, with a silly school girl crush, that doesn't want the mystery debunked.

Well, I suppose he has a few good points, but personally I prefer Stephanie Lynn Nicks.

I could listen to her sing all day long.

Hmmm, now that is manly thinking. While I could listen to Billy sing all day, I don't think he is the man of the Woman's Poem.

Have a great Easter Fram!

Oh my goodness Boni, you and me both! I *love* Billy Idol! Was lucky enough to see him play in July last year at Brixton Academy in London. Wow wow wow fantastic. the boy's still got it, that's for sure! :-)

Ah, now you've got me sitting here grinning like a loon at the thought...

Have a great Easter Boni!

Hi Katy,

Loved your post about the magician, I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes. Also, really enjoyed the story of the lambs. Thank you for your talent.

Sigh, Billy Idol! I named a dog after him once, her name was Punk Idol. He is quite the man!

You are a LUCKY woman! I saw the pictures on your blog of you and some of Billy's band members.

Oh to have a (flesh for) fantasy, ay!

Thanks for stopping by, and for the comment.
