Billy Idol is working on a stage musical based on his memoirs.

The White Wedding star lifted the lid on his wild life in the music industry in his book Dancing With Myself, which was released last year (14), and Idol has now revealed he is hoping to transform his story into a stage show.

He tells Australia's Sydney Morning Herald, "We are trying to think beyond me as a musical performer, and that's a bit of fun. Whether we'll really pull it off, I don't know, but I never knew if we were going to pull the book off. It's in an early stage. But that's the fun we're having. We're still looking for new vistas, new areas to go in, and see what happens."
