Billy Idol only owned two pairs of leather trousers during the whole of the 1980s. I'm sure you can all extrapolate what that must have smelled like. He would throw cologne over them to try and mask the stench, but that's rather like put an Airwick inside a charnel-house:

"You had to warm them up because they were stuck together. That's the reason I started wearing cologne, to hide the stench of the fucking rotting, fleshy, slimy shit.

"The lower part of my body was blue, because the leather would bleed onto the skin.

"Instead of Old Blue Eyes, they'd call me Old Blue Balls."
