BILLY SQUIER’s Career Killing Decision
Back in the early 80’s Billy Squier was on top of the world. Having released back to back albums with 1981′ “Don’t Say No” and 1982’s “Emotions in Motion” that combined sold 5 million copies , he was on top of the world. He should’ve had a huge career for the rest of the decade, but it would be his music video for his 1984 single “Rock Me Tonite” that sunk his career. Today we take a look at that video and how it all came together and ended his career prematurely.
