Billy Idol in concert, with coins

No longer a fresh young pup, but still very game, Billy Idol performs at Brixton Academy in London, England on July 31, 2008. Billy Idol was born in 1955, so he turned 53 the year this photo was taken.

Billy Idol's jacket is festooned with what would appear to be 10-pence coins, except that the Queen's head is facing the wrong way. (Queen Elizabeth II faces right, not left, on British coinage.) Whatever they are, the coins are proof that it's all about "Mon(e)y Mon(e)y" for Billy Idol, and thank you for taking the time to read that tortured attempt at a faintly relevant joke.
