This sweet vintage muscle tee is for the English rock singer Billy Idol from his 1984 tour promoting his album Rebel Yell. For the album Idol, continued his collaboration with producer Keith Forsey and instrumentalist Steve Stevens. Idol was a part of the "Second British Invasion" and he had already become an MTV staple with his music videos for "White Wedding" and "Dancing With Myself". Rebel Yell granted the singer even more MTV airtime with the videos for "Eyes Without a Face", "Flesh for Fantasy", and the title track. The album peaked at number 6 on the Billboard 200, although it only made it to number 36 on the UK charts.
Before launching his solo career, Idol played guitar for the 1960s style retro-rock band Chelsea. With the help of singer Gene October, this is where Idol adapted his signature image including the iconic bleached locks. He would later quit Chelsea and found the band Generation X with Chelsea's bassist Tony James. Idol moved to New York City in 1981 where he began his solo career alongside Steve Stevens.
