Billy Squier, an American rock musician, got to the peak after he gave two back-to-back hit album in the early 80’s. The first one was “Don’t Say No” in 1981 while the other one was “Emotions in Motion” in 1982.

The albums turned out to be the biggest achievement for Billy that both of the hits climbed into Billboard's Top Five and millions of copies were sold just in the United States.

With the success of those albums, Billy Squier was famed throughout the world and it seemed he‘d be the greatest artist in the 80’s. But the empire fell down when he released the single "Rock Me Tonite" from the album “Signs of Life”.

The song was supposed to represent Billy’s attempt to wind up familiar with the developing techno-pop scene of the early and mid-'80s. But the party became worst when the viewers saw the video of "Rock Me Tonite" and it proved to be divertingly terrible which was bound to be a work of art.

The title is an impeccably unsubtle in its inference to sex. It's nothing significant, only an incredible soul-filled rock song about getting turned on and reckoning sex.

The video was directed by Kenny Ortega in which Billy’s act was like a gay anticipating for sex. So, most of his fans also assumed to be a gay or on drugs. While the song peaked Billy to #1 position on Top Rock Tracks and #15 on Billboard Hot 100. Despite this much success, the worst video made his career sink down and started to lose his fans.

Moving to Billy’s bio, he had a few high-profile affairs in the past, but, at the moment, he is married to his wife Nicole Schoen since 2002. It’s been almost one and half decade since their wedding, but there is no rumor about their children. Billy, at the age of 66, is estimated to have a net worth of around $40 million.
