Tempus fugit! He used to be an icon now, even allowing for jet lag, general knackeredness, etc, I reckon he must be on everyone's death list. Sad.

Never an icon of mine, no idea who he is, don't think I've missed much.

I find that attitude, common that is it is, to be nothing more than a dishonest pose. Back in the day, Lydon was notorious, manufactured so to an extent admittedly, and made the headlines regularly. I would have thought it was impossible to miss him. Now, he is less visible but still making some good music.

I assure you KE, nothing dishonest about my comment. I have never heard of this chap, I do recall the Sex Pistols "music" being discussed on the TV News when they first appeared, I thought they were crap and they never entered my sphere of interest again.

I never liked their music, if that is what you want to call it with the spitting and what have you, but time passes and we end up what we truly are.
Admittedly the photos in the link have been taken in not the most flattering way but that is how he used to be portrayed in the past also so no changes there.
He still is someone you can't keep your eye off because of the clothes he wears.

Now if we are talking about pop icons, I have to say Gladys Knight was superb singing at the Last Night of the Proms last night. A true icon with talent.

He looks very big compared to a few years ago. I wonder if he's off the old drugs and onto a new one...sugar. Poor bloke may be on medication for something though.

aka Johnny Rotten. Come on, you must have at least heard of the Sex Pistols, PiL etc??

It's general musical/cultural British knowledge, whether you like them or not.

Among a particular portion of the population maybe, Gustav Holst is more to the liking of others.

..and I've also heard of Holst. That is also general musical/cultural knowledge.

His fellow "musician" Sid Vicious, was a lovely fellow, wasn't he?

My son is part of the bar (etc) management at Exeter University. A while back they had PIL playing (lucky beggars, I was holiday and missed it) and so he had to deal with their rider. Lydon's included a bowl of Irish stew for after the gig. Assuming this is a standard request, it might go some way to explaining his size.

By all accounts, he was a thoroughly likeable person until the drugs really took hold and he was helplessly in their thrall. But, musically he was a waste of space, put into the band by Malcolm McLaren for effect rather than worth. As shown by the fact that the person he replaced is still going strong and making music.

I read an interview with Lydon where he said he got such bad stage fright he couldn't keep food down for hours beforehand and made up for it after the gig with a massive meal.

That would explain the Irish stew.

As I'm on the subject, one of my favourites, Lydon's tribute to his late mother...

There you go, that's what sex and drugs and rock and roll can do for you...

I was very much into the music scene in my youth - hell, I worked in it - but the Sex Pistols were never my cup of tea. In fact, I though they were horrible. Still do....
