I finally got ahold of some of the footage from the 1992 or 93 reunion of Gen X. As much as I love that bands' output in it's entirety the 5 songs they performed at the reunion were pathetic. Actually the band was decent, but Billy Idol was horrible. He was singing in a completely different key than what the band was playing in, his voice was cracking all over the place, and he was coked out of his skull.

That being said, anything Billy Idol tries to do that is in line with his earlier Generation X material is just laughable and not worth my time.


On a side note, anyone who saw The UK Subs at the Triple Rock last year was treated to the drum stool being filled by one Kim Wylie, aka John Towe, original drummer with Generation X.

I was at that show. I was in the nose bleed seats. I recently stumbled on the pictures I took at the show. Like ants dancing on sidwalk.

Yup, Steve Stevens is back, and the whole band is sounding tight. I like it a lot! Best mainstream artist release of 2005 so far, IMO! Cool

Anyone else see the Myth ad for the Billy Idol concert? It also had an ad for the Johnny Lang concert. What was weird is that Johnny Lang now looks more like Billy Idol (vintage Generation X) than Billy Idol. Billy looks more like Iggy.

Dammit, my point wasn't who's going to the show and who isn't allowed to. It was doesn't Jonny Lang look like a young Billy Idol?
