Billy Idol released 'Charmed Life' in May 1990. Billy Idol ended the '80s on a hot streak that included three consecutive gold and platinum albums and a Top 10 collection of remixes - but he still felt like he had something to prove. For starters, like many young artists, Idol was eager to showcase sides of his personality he hadn't yet found room for on an album. The whole idea of the album was to get more of an emotional side of me, not just the frustrated or angry side, but it was hard to do because of all the technology," Idol told the Los Angeles Times. Instead of it being the freewheeling music of 'Rebel Yell,' it was turning into something very stagnant or standard. So, I wanted to get back on this album and tour to more of a real feel – real musicians playing the songs. Idol wasn't about to completely overhaul the sound that had brought him multi-platinum success, however.
