Watch This! John Lydon aka Johnny Rotten Talks To The BBC’s John Humphries About The Pistol’s Legacy

The longest running current presenter of BBC Radio 4’s flagship news program, Today, John Humphries (who you may also know as the question master on BBC1’s Mastermind) spoke to John Lydon this morning about his and the Pistol’s legacy amongst other things. In the process of the discussion John Humphries was called “a silly sausage” on radio for the first time ever apparently!

John Lydon was also asked by Humphries about the aims of punk rock, his “direct assault on mediocrity” and why we will never see Sex Pistols: The Musical.

Guy is a former full time member of the Louder Than War editorial team, who's since moved on to pastures new. Music's been a large part of his life since he first stumbled across Peel on his tranny as a fifteen year old. His whole approach to music was learnt from Peel in fact, which includes having as inclusive a taste in music as possible. Guy devotes most of his time looking for new music & although he's been known to say "the only good music is new music" he pretty much accepts this is bollocks. Favourite band The Minutemen.
