Biography

John Joseph Lydon (born January 31, 1956), also known as Johnny Rotten started his music career as the lead singer of punk band the Sex Pistols.

After the Sex Pistols broke up in 1978, he started Public Image Ltd. also called PiL. The group lasted for fourteen years with John Lydon as the only consistent member. In 2010, Lydon reassembled PIL and embarked on a successful tour of Europe, as well as re-visiting the United States for the first time in 18 years.

In 1997 he released a solo album on called Psycho’s Path. He wrote all the songs and played (almost) all the instruments on the album.

Besides music, John has written a book called “Rotten - No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs”, been in British reality television show, “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!”, hosted the short-lived VH1 show “Rotten TV”, co-starred in the movie “Copkiller” along with Harvey Keitel and hosted “It’s a Rotten Day”, a minute-long, syndicated US radio feature, in which he would offer cynical commentary on the day’s headlines.
