Billy Idol working on autobiography

Billy Idol is working on his autobiography with plans to publish it next year.

"I'm three-quarters of the way through it; we're actually editing at the moment," Idol tells Billboard while promoting his current North American tour. "It's sort of my recollections, which is almost a massive joke 'cause I don't remember anything! The bits I do remember...I've tried to give an overview of my career or my love of music or whatever, my personal way through life, maybe some thoughts about what I've done right or wrong in my life. In general it's a bit of a walk through my career, just said in my own words, really."

"All I tried to do was write about things as I saw them, and I didn't try to think about was it sensational, was it this or was it that," he added. "I tried to honestly write about how I felt about things as they happened."

The rocker also tells Billboard he is currently working on new music, with plans to record an album in the fall.

Idol launched a month-long North American tour last week; the trek includes a June 15th appearance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival.

The tour wraps June 25 in Tulsa, OK.
