''I used to tell people ''Eyes Without a Face'' was a murder song. I wonder if I was aware that it was my hijinks and gradual infedelity that were killing Perri Lister's and my love story.'' - Billy Idol
''In July 1984, I traveled back to England in triumph as a solo sensation. We were in the UK for an appearance on Top of the Pops, performing ''Eyes Without a Face'' together with Steve Stevens, with Perri dancing and hitting the background vocals behind me. The song was my breakthrough solo hit in the UK.'' - Billy Idol
''I've always had a fascination with the titles of horror films. I was particularly intrigued by the 60s French nouvelle vague forerunner 'Les Yeux sans visage' (Eyes without a face) , about a brilliant plastic surgeon who vows to restore the face of his daughter, who has been horribly disfigured in a car accident.'' - Billy Idol
