It’s no secret that Billy Idol was a bit wild in the 80s, abusing drugs and alcohol, and now he’s opening up about why he enjoyed the experience so much.
“You are isolated in the world of drugs, you are kinda in your own dimension,” he shares in a new interview with Australia’s “Daily Telegraph.” “The higher you get, the more isolated you are from humanity. I had a great time (being) like that then.”
He adds, "Back in the 80s, we were living as if the world was going to end tomorrow. Substances and things like that, were par for the course.”
Now that Billy’s older his vices include only some “red wine and the occasional joint,” and insists he could never party like he did back then. He notes, “To be doing that now at this age, to be that out of it, would be ridiculous."
