Billy Idol spoke with Rolling Stone and admitted there was a big downside to those leather pants he wore during his heyday. “We had a ten-month tour with ‘Rebel Yell’, and I had two pairs of leather pants,” the singer explained. “In the cases overnight, the leather would dry up. You could only get them up to your calves, then up to your knees, up over your thighs, and eventually you could get them over your bum. You had to warm them up, because they were stuck together. That’s the reason I started wearing cologne, to hide the stench of the fu**ing rotting, fleshy, slimy sh**. And the lower half of my body was blue, because the leather would bleed onto the skin. Instead of Old Blue Eyes, they’d call me Old Blue Balls.”
