British rocker Billy Idol has taken to shaving his testicles - to stave off grey hairs.

The 49-year-old REBEL YELL hitmaker, who has enjoyed bleaching the hair on his head for decades, was none too thrilled when he noticed that the ageing process had taken a grip on his genitals.

He tells MAXIM magazine, "I shaved my balls - they were going grey, I so I shaved them. It's like steel wool down there!"
