Merry Christmas

A little hypertext lovin’ has found gold … pure gold.

KG over at Write Now is Good has a post on Billy Idol’s new Christmas album. This is one album that I never saw coming.

Not only that … there are links straight through to Billy’s MySpace page.

What strikes me most about this is the decision of an artist such as Billy Idol to produce a Christmas album. When I was recently visiting the Hunter Valley I was could not believe the number of times I heard Rod Stewart being piped through the speakers of the wineries, cafes and art galleries. He was omnipresent.

Now I must admit I have never been a Rod Stewart fan — but the middle of the road jazz of Rod Stewart was pushing me over the edge. Now the question is, will Rod be bumped from the podium by Billy? Perhaps. Will I like it? Hmmmm. I don’t know … Billy Idol in a suit — It just feels wrong.

But as KG says, perhaps that means it is just soooo RIGHT.
