Can you still be a brash, sneering punk at age 50? Billy Idol explores the envelope

Ex-punk Billy Idol’s back - curled lip intact

God we were all so young then!

Well, he doesn’t have another gig, does he! Gotta eat, and all that.

Looking back at that Billy Idol cover and numerous others on Rolling Stone, I have to wonder, what took us so long to figure out that publisher Jann Wenner was gay?

I dunno. I’m thinking wry and puckish works better than brash and sneering after you pass 35 or so. (Just a question of toning it down a bit, really.)
