Tonight is the night!

After months of promotion Im finally headlining a show at the historical Showbox @ the Market! Unreal....I don't think it has hit me yet. I remember nearly crapping myself after my band Nite Wave hit the stage. So I think once I see the crowd and it's time to hit the stage there may be some sweat going on.

What's weird is that today is exactly 365 days since I started my website. Sure there is no Billy Idol birthday. But to perform in front of an expected 600-700 people tonight with Idol sending a video for the crowd is just unreal. I can't believe this is really happening. The same stage Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, U2, The Police have played on! Im currently listening to Janet Jackson's "Control" album to get pumped up for this show. How will it go tonight? Time will tell! I will post Idol's second video next week!

So I had birthday this past weekend!

Well a year's time came and passed with no word from Billy Idol himself and another notch on the age belt. Tough to say why he didn't pull through for this. We can confirm YES, Billy Idol did know about this project. Even to the point that Idol's people considered coming up here. Yet here we are on October 24th and we are left with no Idol to rock out to.

So what exactly did I do for my birthday?

Went up to Vancouver, B.C., Canada for an NHL game! Saw an 80's cover band and spent time with some of the best friends a person could know!

And what better way to top it off then a great gift from some friends! Billy Idol on Vinyl!!!

Huge thanks to everyone's support across the globe over the past year. We still have Billy Idol Aid 3 coming up SOON! With more updates! stay tuned!

And Then There Was One Day Left...

(Play My Birthday Billy Idol flyer seen @ the Hollywood Walk of Fame)

Crazy to think it has been a year since I started this crazy project. Time flies when your having fun I guess?! Last year I wanted to try and make something happen with my life. Somehow I came up with the crazy idea to get Billy Idol to Seattle to play at my Birthday this year

It started as a goofy idea and it took me the first month or so to realize I was going to put a lot of work into it. I think it first hit me this was going 100% when I got a video from a lady in Germany who is telling Billy Idol to play @ my birthday!. How crazy is that? Someone from halfway across the world took the time to send me a video of her plea to Billy Idol on my behalf. It was kind actions and the support of strangers who saw the site that really got me going.

Then of course the Celeb videos. It started with Kevin Nealon last year beggin Idol to come play my birthday. That lead to Rick Springfield,then Apolo Ohno. Then the outpouring of support from Celebs!

This website was viewed over 10,000 times with over 30,000 page views in 71 countries!

71 FLIPPIN COUNTRIES!!! Unreal!

The project has been covered on TV, Radio and Paper. The Billy Idol Aid projects have raised over $1,500 ad 300lbs of food with one more to go!
