One Year and 33 Weeks Later
It's been a long trip....I have had the pleasure of meeting so many amazing supportive people along the way but all good things must come to an end.
So how come I did this project for another year? If you guys remember the original plan was to have November 2011's Billy Idol Aid 3 be the finale to this project. Yet Im just not the type to give up so easily.
The past year hasn't had nearly the success the first year did have. It kind of came off as one of those things that may not end, which i figured made it more difficult for people to get behind when there is no end in sight. We did get Pauly Shore, Mark McGrath, Fabio and Giada De Laurentiis to support the cause this year. We have had communication with Idol's MGMT and honestly if i didn't think there was even the slightest chance this would have been done a long time ago.
Where there is a will there's a way. Billy Idol did hint in his video he sent last year "There's always next year". Watch the video below.
Despite this we still have no guarantee of a Billy Idol Birthday show. I really have tried about all I can. From buying a laptop and video camera and letting my imagination do the rest to raising over $7,500 for charity. From hollywood celebs telling Idol to come to TV and radio talk shows spreading the word. Besides giving Billy Idol oodles of cash that I don't have it has all been done. So much so it has been presented in Idol's Managements hands.
So I have decided if we have no word for a Idol Birthday concert by my final related event, BILLY IDOL AID 4, on August 18th, 2012 then this project will be laid to rest.
40 days to go.....
