In 1993 Billy Idol hired me to design his album cover, singles covers, and video boxes, and write his PR bio and advertising copy for his Cyberpunk CD and videos. MTV came over to his place and interviewed us. I haven't seen this in years.
I said, "There's Billy Idol's Internet address – firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a computer and a modem you can send him electronic mail."
A lot of people on the Well got mad at me for setting Billy up with a Well account and thus turning the Well into a cesspool of crass commercialism.
