It's the fortieth anniversary of the all-important 1981 "Don't Stop" EP by Billy Idol. In the last spasms of the London Punk Rock scene circa 1980, Generation X and their front man Billy Broad had the career arc of a bottle rocket, briefly filling English dance floors with the celebratory single "Dancing with Myself"and cover of "Mony Mony". But Punk Rock's purpose of being a disruptive force to reset all the tumblers of popular music was practically fulfilled by then, and had no second act, so Billy Idol needed a new start. Billy Idol is my guest In the Studio.

We had never met anyone in rock music quite like The Pretenders bandleader Chrissie Hynde, and honestly in the forty years since, I still haven't...I have Ms. Hynde here to speak for herself In the Studio about The Pretenders/ Pretenders II, one of rock's most important one-two Post-punk punches.

"The way you change Music is by changing the music," David Bowie told me, without any hint of irony whatsoever, as we discussed 1976's Station to Station. Songs include "Golden Years","Stay" ,"TVC 1-5" ( Bowie said that the unused tune for the Man...Earth soundtrack was about a girl and her relationship with her television),"Wild is the Wind" , and the title song, often cited by post-punk bands including The Cars, Talking Heads, and Gary Numan as a major influence.

"Outlandos d'Amour' has a certain grotesque, naive charm about it," Sting confesses in this interview about the Police debut,"but 'Regatta de Blanc' was infinitely a much better record."
