Bobby's Wish - A Rebel Yell with Billy Idol!
Bobby is very unwell in hospital with throat cancer. He has been a lifelong fan of Billy Idol and had planned to see him at his concert in Sydney but was too unwell to attend. Bobby's niece Hayley contacted The Orange Pigeon about her uncle, initially wanting for Billy to meet her uncle, however as he is now in an isolation ward in hospital, this was not possible.
We contacted Billy Idol's management team about Bobby and without hesitation we received a call on Saturday morning to say they would like to do what they could. Today, we received a lovely video message for Bobby from Billy and Steve Stevens, it is short and sweet but enough to bring a smile to Bobby and his family. We know it is a treasured video message that they can watch over and over again.
We thank Billy Idol and Steve Stevens, Billy’s management team, in particular Leo (what an amazingly kind man) - We know how busy you all are with the current tour and for you to take the time out that you have to put this together for Bobby is breathtaking - The simple things in life really do make the most difference.
