Billy Idol has signed in red ink the white vinyl copy of his 12 Inch Single “White Wedding.”
“White Wedding” is a song by Billy Idol that appeared on his album Billy Idol (1982). Although “The Big 80’s: Episode I” of VH1’s Pop-Up Videotrivia show claims Idol wrote the song to voice his displeasure with his sister’s fiancé (who impregnated her before marrying her), on an episode of VH1 Storytellers, Idol claimed that there was never any family resentment towards his sister, and that the song was simply heightened fantasy and nothing more.It is often considered one of his most recognisable songs, although other Idol songs charted higher.
It reached #36 on the Billboard Hot 100 on its original release, and reached #6 in the UK upon its re-release there in 1985, when it was reissued to promote the Vital Idol remix album.
Signature obtained by presleycollectibles.com at “Presleys” bar (now closed) on Tottenham Court Road, London in 1998.
