Idol, Billy

Entry updated 26 October 2021. Tagged: Music, People.

(1955-    ) Stage name of UK pop star William Michael Albert Broad, who merits mention here only on account of his album Cyberpunk (1993), a punk-electronica concept album inspired by Idol's reading of William Gibson's Neuromancer. Many of Idol's earlier rock-punk songs are catchy, and some have proved enduring, but this album is very bad. [AR]
