Billy Idol set a new standard for debauchery when singer-guitarist Adam Bomb met him in 1985 in a suite at the Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif. In his new book, "911 Is Disconnected: So This Is Rock and Roll," out April 10 from New Haven Publishing, Bomb recalls, "[Idol] was butt naked except for a pair of cowboy boots."
Bomb, who's performed with the late Chuck Berry and Mick Taylor, said Idol, a huge star following the release of his second album, "Rebel Yell," was partying with his manager Bill Aucoin, who had discovered Kiss, and a half-dozen boys "most likely picked up on Santa Monica Boulevard," all wearing black leather underwear.

Kiss auditioned dozens of potential replacements after Ace Frehley departed the line-up in the early '80s -- including a teenage guitarist calling himself Adam Bomb, who recounts the experience in his upcoming memoir.
It wasn't his last time rubbing shoulders with rock royalty, however; more of Bomb's exploits -- including his experiences with members of Van Halen, Aerosmith, Guns & Roses, Bon Jovi, Queensryche and Def Leppard -- can be found in the pages of 911 Is Disconnected
