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.

My ears have finally recovered from seeing PIL in concert several years ago and great news – the rockers are back!  They’ll be releasing the EP “One Drop” on April 21, 2012 to coincide with Record Store Day and on May 28, 2012, they’ll release a brand new full length album called “This is PIL.”

Rock on!

Interesting percentage.  I’ve met Johnny Rotten and had very good luck whereas I’ve heard some not so nice stories.

Tie breaker anyone?

Johnny Rotten was here!

Happy 55th birthday to Johnny Lydon, who is better known as Johnny Rotten!  Johnny Rotten was the lead singer of the Sex Pistols, a band who rewrote the rules of music! Johnny Rotten is well known for having a temper and I remember when I met him, I was very apprehensive about asking for his autograph.  When someone I treat as a god is not nice to me, it is really hard to ever forget it.  Johnny Rotten was playing a charity cricket match in Los Angeles, and when I approached him, he was extremely nice!  He even drew a pair of boobs inside the “w” in “Johnny Rotten was here.”  I lucked out!  Thanks Johnny!!  Have a great birthday!
