Idol's Trouser Stench

British rocker BILLY IDOL was plagued by foul odours during his infamous 1980s tours - because he only had two pairs of leather trousers.

The WHITE WEDDING singer alternated the shiny trousers every night during the 10-month REBEL YELL tour, but he was forced to throw cologne over himself to hide the nasty smell.

The 49-year-old says, "You had to warm them up because they were stuck together. That's the reason I started wearing cologne, to hide the stench of the f**king rotting, fleshy, slimy s**t.

"The lower part of my body was blue, because the leather would bleed onto the skin.

"Instead of Old Blue Eyes, they'd call me Old Blue Balls."
