Billy Idol is involved in a serious motorcycle accident

Remember This?

Remember this?! In our second installment of the OMG moments in music, we take a look at the goings-on of 1990, which is 29 years ago in case you are stuck in some kind of time-lapse like us. 

February 6 – Billy Idol is involved in a serious motorcycle accident resulting in several broken bones. He accidentally ran a red light and his leg was mangled and nearly needed to be amputated. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Billy was slated for a major part in Oliver Stone’s The Doors movie, but was relegated to a bit part, as well as playing the T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Weird to think of that now because the way the character was portrayed by Robert Patrick was perfect. Intense, creepy, menacing and ultimately frightening. Would Billy Idol have been able to pull off a performance as convincing? I guess we’ll never know, however his acting in The Wedding Singer would suggest he’d struggle.
