Billy Idol's Stunning Acoustic Rendition of Bob Seger's 'Against The Wind'

Legendary singer and songwriter Billy Idol turned in a stunning acoustic rendition of a tune by another beloved musician when he played Bob Seger’s “Against the Wind.”

Aging is a process that everyone endures and experiences. Every second, minute, hour and day, we are all getting older. As much as we may want to roll back the years, time remains undefeated, with a perfect record. 

Despite the inability to do so, everyone has memories and places they’d love to go back and experience just once more. Everyone longs for the past at some point, looking back fondly on memories and places during childhood. Not many songs capture this feeling and thinking about the past better than Bob Seger’s “Against the Wind.”

In a clip posted on Instagram, Billy picks up a guitar and performs that beloved tune about the past and how people as children and teenagers have no idea how their lives will go or all the choices they will face. 

“Against the wind

We were runnin’ against the wind

We were young and strong; we were runnin’ against the wind”

Everyone wishes they could return in time and relieve their younger years or make different choices. Sadly, though, that is not possible, so all we can do is look forward and enjoy the time we have and what we have been given. 

Even Billy, in the video’s description, gets a bit nostalgic and mentions what he and Bob used to do in their younger years.

“Just having a go at singing ‘Against the Wind’ on this Saturday AM….Bob Seger was a runner in his early years but I always think about running on my motorbike,” he wrote.

For those who only know Billy for his hits such as “White Wedding,” “Rebel Yell,” and “Mony Mony,” this video on Instagram is a dramatic but welcomed departure.
