    I adore John Lydon, a very clever man, a very funny man, knows just what he is up to- an all round good egg!

    `I come from the working class me`.
    He`s never done a day`s work in his life! All his income has come from tuneless drivel.
    All those who say punk-rock was brilliant probably come from the same gene-pool: A seething stew of pimps, prostitutes, perverts, malcontent`s, misanthropes, cut-throats, footpads, ne`er do wells, etc. All gathered to blame their combined lack of social graces and misfortunes on people who have been bothered to get off their arse, get up and go to work, to pay for the food and drink, clothes, shoes, cars and all the trappings of life that go with being successful. Johnny Rotten is a grade `A`, 5-star, prize twat.

    @Nickel2... yeah, he sure got his childhood roots off something he accomplished when he was 20.

    Its a good thing we can retroactively apply our wealth and success to our childhoods after we earn them as adults!

    He was totally "in character" for the whole interview! Funny yet true to the role!

    The "talking faces" didn`t seem to get it, and made arses of themselves afterwards. Tsk! So sad.

    @Nickel2: Didn`t "they" use to say that about Beatles fans? And Elvis fans before that? There`s always an audience for "counter culture" eh?

    He`s just playing to dim people`s expectations, he was always more panto than rock.

    @Nickel2 - I guess you don`t like punk and/or hardcore music, huh? That rambling comment of yours is full of the same anger & angst you hear coming from that music genre.

    "He`s never done a day`s work in his life! All his income has come from tuneless drivel."

    Nope, wrong, try again...

    Lydon got his first job aged 10 as a minicab dispatcher, something he kept up for a year whilst the family was in financial difficulty.

    Is there really any need for there to be 4 interviewers for the one interview?

    whodat6484: I suspect that a lot of the folk who like him, weren`t around during that era in the UK. If having your bike vandalised on a regular basis, your garden trashed and shat in, being pissed on from multi-storey car parks, being gobbed at in the street for no reason, shop displays upset while families shopping, anything they didn`t like, they spoiled because it was the ethos of punk in that day; if all that stuff gives you good cheer, then you are welcome to it with my blessing. The man is a traitor to his cause, which was to go against commercialism and big business.
    As far as the recording career goes, most of the punk bands at the time only had musical instruments to show society that they were `rebels`. 99% of them could not play a single tune; by their own admission they were hopeless, it was purely image.
    Sure the man is clever, had he spent more time at school, he would have had a different career.
    I was a rebel biker in those years, and am still a music love

    (Continued) -Music lover. I don`t know what punk was like in the US in the 70`s, probably soft and gentle, with nice big policemen with guns to protect you. There were a lot of good bands that came out of that era, who made a lot of good music. They were associated with punk, but were not part of it.
    Punks in the UK now serve a decorative purpose to amuse us all. There is even a movement being started to make upsetting a punk a `hate-crime` the same as racism etc. Fair play; today`s punks are not the arseholes that spawned the movement in the first place.

    Good one, you`re a pretty funny guy! The American version of punk, called Hardcore, Hardcore Punk, and where I am in NYC where it started, it`s called New York Hardcore (NYHC). Many of the bands from the early 80`s that I grew up with, and are friends of mine now since I play, are still around sweating it out in the clubs/bars and actually live the life, not like the majority of the posers you see on TV these days.

    Here`s a documentary that will help give you a good idea of that. It`s called "American Hardcore" and covers the history from 1980 to 1986.

    So, he says they`re loud or "shoosh" and they gasp. He says he`s Johnny F`ing rotten and no one cares. I prefer the Ausie style of patrolling the airwaves.

    What an obnoxious prick. It might be forgivable if he ever had any talent. If you never heard his "music," count yourself lucky; it sucked dead donkey balls.
