You know I looked up the lyrics and they're more relevant than I at first realized:

"Don't ask us to attend
Cause we're not all there
Oh don't pretend 'cause I don't care
I don't believe illusions 'cause too much is real
So stop your cheap comment
Cause we know what we feel"

He was also barred from the BBC for hinting/saying/declaring/nudging and winking that Jimmy Savile was sexually assaulting children and teens

BBC banned Johnny Rotten in 1978 for telling the truth about Jimmy Savile

And just where did you expect him to be 40 years later?
 
2017-10-03 07:25:40 PM  
that is awfully punk of him

It was his Bill Grundy moment.
Surprised they didn't just recycle the "THE FILTH AND THE FURY" headline from 40+ years ago.

Mike Tyson is caring for pigeons.
Alice Cooper plays celebrity golf.
Ice Cube is doing G rated family movies.
And . . .
Johnny Rotten is still a punk.
Go. Punk. Go.

I'm surprised by the Rotten hate. Give the man some respect.The man is a living legend. The Sex Pistols did more with one and a half albums than 99.9% of all other bands. His work with PiL, while uneven, was excellent to at-least-never-farkin'-boring. He's seems genuinely in love with his wife of 40 years. He's 61-years old and has lived an interesting life. You'll be 61 some day too and I'm sure you'll have lived an inter...oh, yeah, about that.

Spot on assessment IMHO.  For those of us who were around when the Pistols showed up they were a breath of fresh air in a musical world dominated by bloated old rock, corporate rock, and disco.  Cheers to John for maintaining a "Fark you I'll do and say whatever I want" attitude longer than anyone else.  With the possible exception of Neil Young.

Thirded. I saw them and on the filthy lucre tour on a summer night in Dallas Texas in an under conditioned cinder block tin roof building with no windows and only one door open. I'm a native Texan and I can take the hot weather but it was stifling and that son-of-a-biatch was on stage castigating us for being lifeless and put on a show you wouldn't believe. I have no idea how he did it cause it had to be way hotter up there and he never stopped moving and they rocked like you would not believe if they come next year I'm definitely going and that place got tore down so it won't be in there thank God.

Also I don't give a shiat if he is paunchy and drunk the man has earned it. He's a smart and witty motherfarker and we're all the better that he's around

Yeah, I get it, but I think much of his insufferableishness is the Rotten persona in the media, an act. I've seen, heard and read enough of John Lydon to believe he's actually a pretty smart and witty guy with a heart.

I mean, it's not like the guy is Gene Simmons. Now, that guy deserves all the scorn and ridicule Fark can muster.

Which is a lot.

It looks like everyone had a wonderful evening. No sarcasm at all. They got shiatfaced and went to a show in his honor and got barred at the door. He hugged his wife. Made the papers. Doesn't get better than that. Dude farking rocks.

I don't really like the Sex Pistols but can respect their influence.  That one album gave us a ton of bands to listen to.

He's always looked like shiat. The only difference is now he's old and looks like shiat.

That's messed up. I don't care how much of a drunk he was being, it was supposed to be about him, the least they could have freaking done is let him in the freaking door.

what a bunch of jerks. Bigger jerks than he was acting like drunk. At least he had that as an excuse, and they had none.

FTA: The Sex Pistols are rumoured to be touring in 2018

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

I'm a prog geek who loved/loves Never Mind the Bollocks, but what point would that serve? To give 50-and-60 somethings a chance to relive their youth by bellowing out "God save the Queen!!!!!"? A paycheck for Steve Jones, Paul Cook and whatever bass player they drag along? A 50th Anniversary tour for an album released in 1977?

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

Jake Havechek: And what did The Clash ever do that was so friggin' great anyway?
