Billy Idol was lead singer of GenerationX before embarking on a solo career that made him a household name. I remember seeing this video when I was just a wee tot and thinking "That's what I want to be when I grow up!"
Well, it didn't quite work out that way, but hey, there can only be 1 Billy Idol anyway.

Billy Idol trivia: According to the Wikipedia Terminator 2 - Judgment Day page: Billy Idol was Cameron's original choice for the T-1000, and Cameron had drawn storyboards to resemble him, but Idol could not accept the role following a motorcycle accident. Cameron stated that "I wanted to find someone who would be a good contrast to Arnold. If the 800 series is a kind of human Panzer tank, then the 1000 series had to be a Porsche."
