Billy Idol Was This Close To Ruining Your First Junior High Make-Out Session



A little while ago we told you that you were still very much in the running to be the lead singer of Aerosmith. While we're still pulling for you, we find it only fair to tell you that you weren't their first choice. Apparently Classic Rock Magazine (according to Metal Hammer, whose authority we dare not question as they are called Metal Hammer) is claiming Joe Perry wanted to replace Tyler at an earlier point in the band and had his heart set on Billy Idol. Yes, that Billy Idol. But the man never showed for his potential audition because he had a cold, and eventually order was restored within the ranks of that dysfunctional band. Man, would that have brought a creepier vibe to that love scene in "Armageddon" or what? Looks like Ben Affleck owes somebody a thank you card...! (Via: Daily Swarm via Metal Hammer)
