Billy Idol: Good afternoon, everyone. Were flying at 26,000 feet,moving up to 30,000 feet, and we've got clear skies all the way to Las Vegas. Right now, were bringing you some in-flight
entertainment. One of our first class passengers would like to sing
you a song inspired by one of our coach passengers. And since we let our first class passengers do, pretty much whatever they want, here he is... (Billy Idol as himself in The Wedding Singer") (allsubs.org)

How you doin', sir - chicken or fish? (Billy Idol as himself in The Wedding Singer) (quotefully.com)

Billy Idol - “Face to face And back to back You see and feel My sex attack Sing it Flesh, flesh for fantasy We want Flesh, flesh for fantasy.” (famousquotes.com)

Billy Idol - “I still put that into Devil's Playground. I believe there's a punk rock attitude to it. I don't think if you put it on you'd necessarily go, 'That's punk rock,' but I've never lost the punk rock attitude.” (famousquotes.com)

Billy Idol - “In 1995, I ran into a brick wall. I had no band anymore, and the music business was getting quite soulless. It seemed like the big record companies were mostly interested in eating each other and promoting music as product. They didn't really believe in rock and roll anymore. How was someone like me going to fit into that If I had continued taking their money to make records, I would have ended up owing them so much money that I never could have made the album I have now. They wanted my soul in hock, and I refused to fall into their trap. I just stopped putting out records when I knew they would turn out sh*tty, and I waited until I found a company Sanctuary that really wanted a Billy Idol record. It's not just a (expletive) job You can't go out there with people you hate and music that s*cks. I suppose it was a gamble staying away so long, but it's paid off because I'm happy. I'm happy to be Billy Idol with a quality Billy Idol record. How's that for a marketing tactic?” (famousquotes.com)

Billy Idol - “I don't play 100 punk rock music” (famousquotes.com)

Billy Idol - “I think people can see that if anything I kept the alternative thing in MTV, ... If they hadn't had me it would have been just Madonna and big-hair bands. It was a great combination of punk and rock, and I've gone on to do that today.” (famousquotes.com)

“So let's sink another drink 'Cause it'll give me time to think.” (famousquotes.com)

Billy Idol - “Some highlights of the new stuff included a great version of an English folk song Plastic Jesus. ... If I weave around at night and policemen think I'm tight Plastic Jesus shelters me For his head comes off, you see hes hollow, and I use him for a flask.” (famousquotes.com)

Billy Idol - “(I) just had to show there's life in the old dog yet. (You) don't have to go out and shoot me.” (famousquotes.com)

I love it when someone insults me. That means that I don't have to be nice anymore. (brainyquote.com)

Everybody got it wrong. I said I was into porn again, not born again.

If your world doesn`t allow you to dream, move to one where you can.

Rock isn`t art, it`s the way ordinary people talk.

I rocked the cradle of love.

Great sex is great, but bad sex is like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

It doesn`t matter about money; having it, not having it. Or having clothes, or not having them. You`re still left alone with yourself in the end.

The biggest misconception people have about me is that I`m stupid.

Rock isn`t art, it`s the way ordinary people talk.

I love it when someone insults me. That means that I don`t have to be nice anymore.

I don`t care what stage or what reason, as long as we`re playing.
