Billy Idol: Rebel Yell 30th anniversary featured on In The Studio

The 30th anniversary of Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell” is featured on this week’s episode of North American rock radio series In The Studio.

Idol joins host Redbeard to talk about his second album, which featured four US hits, including “Eyes Without A Face”, “Flesh For Fantasy”, “Catch My Fall” and the title track.

The album reached No. 6 on the US Billboard 200 album charts and was certified double-platinum for sales of 2 million copies.

Idol got the idea to name the album "Rebel Yell" after attending a party with The Rolling Stones. He explained on VH1 Storytellers that people were drinking out of a bottle of liquor called "Rebel Yell", and thought that would be a great title for an album.
