John Lydon, maybe better known to the over-40’s as Johnny Rotten has been a constant in my life. Infact, I cannot remember a time without his voice echoing in my head. That may explain a lot. you may say. Love him or hate him, most people do both, you can’t ignore the contribution he has made to music and culture in general.
I have been lucky enough to see John with the Pistols and Public Image Ltd and photograph him in concert. I have also seen him, photographed him, in other situations – not least on his book tour a few years back. So here is a selection of my favourite John Lydon images.
Below is Public Image Ltd in 2009. Perfect.
And finally here’s a picture of John Lydon’s shoes. Why not? Well, the interesting thing about these is that I noticed on some very early Pistols shots he wore very similar shoes. Hmm.
