October 16, 2008

Former A list rock singer. Now, just someone we love to sing with at clubs and see in the odd film cameo is going blind.

Billy Idol

Aw - this makes me sad for real.

d said...

wow, I'm sorry to hear that. Wasn't Meatloaf the most popular guess for this one?

cajun cutie said...

Darn. Hate to hear about anyone losing their vision.

Dianne P said...

Noooooooo

kimi said...

Wow, awful. I wonder why.

d said...

There was an incident during the filming of a video where his contact lenses got fused to his eyes, something to do with a light malfunction?

Maybe that's what started the problem.

Poor Billy. I had the biggest crush on him as a little girl.

Magenta said...

Sadness. My mom will be so sad when she finds out.

:( One of the best performances I've ever seen at Neil Young's acoustic Bridge benefits - and there's been a lot of performers. Idol was AWESOME and got everyone on their feet except the studiously disaffected DMB fans sitting behind us. The benefit is a for a school that helps severely communication disabled kids and they have the kids on stage - Idol played to them repeatedly, and charmed them as well.

icywench said...

That is just so sad. Brings back memories of watching White Wedding on MTV. I think I just revealed I'm old.

Molly said...

ditto on this making me sad.

devix said...

So sad. I still listen to Eyes without a face sometimes.

not on my dollar said...

Wow I don't think anyone guessed this one correctly. Thanks for the reveal. Pretty sad though.

Amanda said...

There were, if I remember correctly, several Idol guesses but Meatloaf was the most popular in the thread.

Bummer.

JJ said...

This is really sad. There have been a lot of sad reveals today.

Extremely long time lurker...thought I would pop up on the first day of this year. This reveal makes me sad...I had the biggest crush on Billy Idol and his snarl when I was younger...*le sigh*

mabel said...

Perhaps he is going blind but this can be corrected through surgery? This is sad and I hope it isn't permanent. He also was in a nasty motorcycle accident, so who knows.

Kim said...

Oh no! We had a lot of guesses for this one, but not him.

SO SAD! One of my 80s faves.

BlahFrickinBlah said...

awwww Poor Billy! That so sucks!

Ms. said...

I used to really like Billy Idol until his nasty habit of punching women in the face came to light...

Molly said...

surfer, thnx. is she in the witness protection program? ;)

i'm happy she's still here.

pomme said...

i hadn't no idea about billy idol it's very sad!

Katie said...

Well this sucks that it is Billy Idol... but I did guess right. Amazing for my first guess on these Blind Items! And I still have a crush on Billy Idol!!! Man I love him.

lutefisk said...

Molly--thanks for caring--I'm fine. I have been lutefisk since mooshki pointed out someone is posting on Mischa Barton's blog under Love, Adrian.
But now Bad Fish is doing it under Love, Lutefisk, lol,so I don't know who I will be.
I haven't been posting because we have been on vacation, & I have to steal a laptop every now & then to come on.

Molly said...

adrian, glad all is well and you're busy with vacations and i'm just out of the loop enough to have missed the name change. happy new year and continued good health, girl!

Met Billy Idol on a few occasions. He is really, really nice. Like super nice. Love him.

lutefisk said...

Thanks Molly,
Happy New Year. As soon as I am back in the comfort of my kitchen with my computer, I will be posting again either as Adrian or Lutefisk.
