Rocker Billy Idol is hobbling around his adopted Hollywood following corrective surgery on his foot.
The smiling White Wedding hitmaker was spotted leaving a Beverly Hills medical centre on Monday on crutches with his right foot in a cast.

Idol underwent surgery last week to “correct malformation of foot due to hitting a truck tire in road a year ago,” as he explained via

He adds, “Hit foot on shredded truck tire causing a hairline fracture a year & a1/2 (sic) ago and it was calcifying causing malform (sic) & pain.”

And the rocker admits that the painkillers he has been given are bringing back a lot of old memories: “Nodded out & woke up in a pile of my own vomit! This is like the old days!”

But it hasn’t all been a joke to Idol, revealing he is “in pain and p**sed it’s gonna take a month & half to heal!!!”

The Rebel Yell singer insists he plans to use his recovery time wisely by working on already-recorded new material and penning his memoirs.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson tells WENN, “He’s feeling much better.”
