The Friday Distraction

John Lydon on Judge Judy. It happened:

30 years since the Sex Pistols… scary thought. Glad to see that they are not going to try another reunion this year.

Sid is still dead. Actually if he had lived he would have been 50 years old yesterday. Nah I know. He wouldn’t have. I’ve seen kids walking round with his image on their t-shirts.

Johnny Rotten aka John Lydon will be on the telly soon. Info from his website: “John has contributed an interview to the forthcoming BBC2 series ‘7 Ages Of Rock’; due to start Saturday, May 19th at 9pm. John will be appearing in episode 3 which looks at punk, and of course, the Sex Pistols.” » Link
