Despite his legendary excessive lifestyle, Idol appeared in several charity shows. In 1988, he took part in Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit concert and the following year guested in the charity performance of the Who's Tommy in London. After being auditioned for a part in Oliver Stone's The Doors, Idol almost emulated its central character by suffering an early death. A motorcycle crash in February 1990 seriously damaged his leg, but he recovered remarkably quickly and the same May hit the number 2 slot in America with 'Cradle Of Love' (taken from the Andrew Dice Clay movie The Adventures Of Ford Fairlaine). However, he soon found himself back in trouble, this time with the Los Angeles courts when, in 1992, he was put on probation for two years and fined $2,700 for an assault on a 'fan'. This all added fuel to the rebel image but by now Idol had become far more successful than most of the punk founders with whom he rubbed shoulders back in 1977. His attempt to rebrand his image on 1993's Cyberpunk was a notable commercial and critical failure, and the following year Idol narrowly escaped death for a second time when he overdosed. He laid low until the end of the decade when he made a cameo appearance in the Adam Sandler comedy The Wedding Singer. Idol's comeback was confirmed in the new millennium thanks to a highly entertaining Behind The Music documentary for the VH1 channel, and an accompanying live CD recorded with guitarist Steve Stevens.
