Johnny Rotten Reveals He’s ‘Ruined’ By Legal Battle With Former Bandmates Over Sex Pistols Hits Used In TV Drama Pistol
Punk icon John Lydon says he is “ruined” by his legal battle with former bandmates over the use of Sex Pistols hits in a TV drama.
The singer, known as Johnny Rotten, described Paul Cook, Steve Jones and Glen Matlock as “bad” because they licensed the business for the series called Pistol.
“I am seriously in a state of disrepair,” he told The Daily Telegraph. ‘I have no more savings, no more loans, no more pensions. I do not have anything.’
Lydon, 65, said The Sex Pistols are now done forever. “For me, that bond has ceased to exist.”
The series, which will be shown next year, is based on a memoir by Jones and is directed by Danny Boyle.
