Johnny Rotten Blasts Avril and Kelly ‘tub o’ lard’ Osbourne.

Now I must admit I laughed when I read Johnny Rotten Blasts Avril and Kelly ‘tub o’ lard’ Osbourne” in AntiMusic but really, I find it hard to take Mr. Lydon seriously in this day and age. The guy is an oldies act pure and simple. I certainly won’t deny the Pistols their place in the Punk sun (my first band in high school played “Problems” even worse than they did) but really, if you have to debate what “punk” is you’re looking for publicity. As for being anti-corporate, I seem to remember the Pistols doing a corporate beer event during their last “return.” And if you want to do a “punk” roundtable, at least get a last remaining Ramone and a New York Doll in there, and throw in Lenny Kaye for good measure. Gimme a break.
Later.
