John Lydon Likes Mick Jagger!!

It took a long long time for this story to come out but John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten, says that Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger helped out Sid Vicious when everybody else turned their backs. When Sid was accused of murdering his girlfriend Nancy Spungen in 1979, it was Mick Jagger who paid for the legal fees. John says:

“For that, I have a good liking of Mick Jagger. There was activity behind the scenes from Mick so I applaud him. He never used it to advance himself publicity-wise.”

Unfortunately Sid died from an overdose so the case never went to court.

John Lydon (Rotten) Has A Book!

I’ll know him more by Johnny Rotten but he has a scrapbook that came out last week. It’s a pretty big book at 14″ x 14″ and has over 250 pages of personal images and hand written quotes. The book is limited to 750 numbered books and will come with a 12″ picture vinyl that is hand built into the back cover of each book. You can get it here if you have the money. It’s not cheap.
