School: Billy Idol

Finding his rebel yell.

What’s your earliest memory of school?

My parents moved from England to New York when I was two. We came back to Dorking in Surrey when I was six. So I had a crew cut and an American accent and I didn’t know how to play soccer – as I called it. So at my first school everyone called me ‘the American kid’. I’d get invited to play football just so they could hack me down. After that we moved to Worthing and I went to the local Church Of England school.
