Billy Idol has revealed that he is not entirely over his addiction issues.

In an interview on Apple 1, Idol said, “I’d had the motorcycle accident because I was a drug addict, and I had to cure that. And it took a long time.”

“I mean, I’m not 100 percent,” Idol added. “I stopped the hard stuff, and I don’t drink much – things like that.”

“I’d be dead right now or in prison,” Idol said. “… Drug addicts, we’re very clever. We’re not going to let you know; we’re going to hide it. We’re going to lie to you. We’re not going to tell you the truth.”
