Billy Idol has found a positive side effect to his years of drug abuse - a slim body.

The British rocker, 49, admits he's thrilled with the state narcotics have left his body in - despite their danger.

He tells MAXIM magazine, "In my job, rock 'n' roll and food don't go together. Rock 'n' roll and drugs go together: They'll make you thin.

"They'll kill you as well, but you'll have a thin corpse. I'm lucky because I have to go onstage. I can't jiggle a ton of fat around; it's embarrassing."
