Johnny Fucking Rotten!  The legendary lead singer of Sex Pistols and Public Image Limited (aka PiL) John Lydon (better known as Johnny Rotten) was in town to perform a pair of shows and also to sign copies of PiL’s latest album “This is PiL” at J&R Music World in New York on October 13, 2012.  Johnny was anything but rotten as he graciously spent quality time with everyone in line, was happy to take photos and would sign pretty much anything you wanted – except anything Sex Pistols related.  I of course tried to slide one in and Johnny gave me the “you should know better” look and I told him “it never hurts to try.”  He laughed.  I asked Johnny his secret for longevity and he told me “It’s all in the details.”  Very sound advice, according2g.  Thanks for being so awesome Johnny!

This is PiL. Out now! Don’t even think of trying to get your Sex Pistols items signed.
