"I think too many people tell me what I think and not enough ask me..." John LydonAdd to my shortlist
Although John had no previous musical involvement, the Sex Pistols made their live debut at St Martins College of Art, November 6th 1975. On account of his decaying teeth John was re-christened "Johnny Rotten". His scintillating vocal delivery and forthright lyrics - matched with the band's power and energy - soon saw the Pistols build up a word-of-mouth following. Despite John vehemently rejecting the term, the Sex Pistols found themselves at the forefront of what would later become known as "Punk". Still prolific with his innovative band Public Image Ltd. (PiL), John has remained a compelling and dynamic figure both as a musician and thanks to his outspoken, controversial, yet always heartfelt and honest views.
