ROCKTOBER: Billy Idol Lands Book Deal with Simon & Schuster

Billy Idol Lands Book Deal with Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone Imprint - GalleyCat
Rock and roll legend Billy Idol has landed a book deal with Simon & Schuster’s Touchstone imprint. The memoir will be entitled Dancing with Myself, named after his famous tune. Touchstone publisher Stacy Creamer acquired the book. Kirby Kim from William Morris Endeavor negotiated the deal. Publication is set for late 2011 or early 2012.
Here’s more from the release: “Idol, a natural-born storyteller who helped forge the early punk music scene on his way to multiplatinum worldwide success, will write the book himself. His bold, strikingly literary account will capture not only his remarkably colorfully life, but also an extended period in music history that saw punk rock’s emergence through to its lasting impact on musicians around the world.”


  1. Gah. I spend more time coveting than I do reading. Or writing.

    Wrong. Very wrong. Or very right -- it means there's some good rock and roll on the market.

  2. Can't think of a better title! Will probably very interesting reading.


Thanks for leaving a note! I try to reply to all conversations!
