Fan convinces Billy Idol to sing at his birthday party

A rock fan has convinced Billy Idol to perform in his hometown at his 26th birthday party.

After a two year campaign that was partly a career stunt as well as a ploy to get all his friends together, Michael Henrichsen persuaded the British rocker to go to Seattle to do the gig.

He told Radio 5 live Breakfast how he did it.
