Couldn't stand this guy's music. He was lame then...he's lame now. He's one of the reasons that 80s Rock was so grim. RocknRoll elevator music or something you would hear in a dentist's office.

Wasn't he screwing around with the mtv vjays back in the day? He was constantly on mtv.

I remember how MTV always constantly aired his videos in the early 80s

he looks the same to me. we started calling him "Billy Squirrel" after his silly video "Rock Me Tonight," in which he rolls around in satin satin sheets. 😝

Jesus, what's with spammer hell today? You really need to do something about those posts TMZ.

I'm surprised they didn't use a lousy pic of Squier; there's some where he has short almost buzzed hair. Some scary shots. Good choice to let his hair grow back out. Loved his music, still do, but that God awful homoerotic video ruined his hot streak.

I simply cannot understand how anyone looks could change in 30 years or so. Mystifying and incomprehensible. Alert the media!

Truth    

Billy Squier KILLED HIS CAREER with the gay music video directed by some flamer, 'Rock Me Tonight'. It's still one of the funniest clips ever. It absolutely KILLED HIS CAREER DEAD on the spot.

Did give much attention to his music.

His album cover was eye-catching and typical for the time. The one video I saw kept displaying the image from the album cover. Obviously meant to connect the music to the LP in the minds of mall shoppers.

If he'd just used his real name without the 80's marketing gimmicks, I might have given a listen.
