John_Lydon’s Biography

John Joseph Lydon was born in Holloway, London, United Kingdom, although he is also said to have been born in County Galway, Ireland. During his childhood he lived with his parents, Catholics from Ireland, and with his three brothers. When she was seven, she contracted meningitis. This illness caused him to spend a year hospitalized, losing his memory after a long coma. This loss of memory was so severe that he was unable to recognize his parents, which in turn caused him a strong distrust of his surroundings, and is currently married to Nora Forster, mother of Ari Up, vocalist of the punk band. of reggae influence The Slits.

Sex Pistols

Lydon used to hang around Malcolm McLaren’s shop, called “SEX”, in 1975. When Malcolm returned from New York, where he had represented the New York Dolls during a tour, he devised the formation of a group with a similar style, but mixed with the image of Richard Hell. The band already had three of its members, Steve Jones (guitar), Glenn Matlock (bass) and Paul Cook (drums), for when McLaren noticed Lydon, who at that time caught his attention because of his hair dyed green and his Pink Floyd t-shirt with the words “I hate” (“I hate”) written with marker on top, for the position of vocalist.

In 1977 the band released the famous song «God Save the Queen», during the silver jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. The song was a success, but it caused so much controversy that Lydon was even physically assaulted.

After a while, the band decided to dismiss bassist Glen Matlock, for which Lydon proposed an acquaintance of his as a substitute, John Simon Ritchie-Beverly, who would later be known as Sid Vicious. At first the inclusion of Vicious was a great success but the addiction to the heroine of the bassist, coupled with the conflictive relationship with Nancy Spungen, caused disasters between the two.

In 1978 during the first Sex Pistols tour of the United States, the band disintegrated after a bumpy show in San Francisco, California. John’s last words were “Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?” (“Have you ever had the feeling of being deceived?”). Later, the author of the punk fanzine Legs McNeil would mention in his book Please Kill Me that he met John at the CBGB premises a few days after that last recital and saw him wearing a shirt that was sold during the tour in which he said “Yo I survived the tour of the Sex Pistols “, and underneath I had written him in a bookmark” But the band does not “.

Public Image Ltd.

After the separation of the Pistols, Lydon dedicated himself to the Public Image Limited group, which he formed with former The Clash guitarist Keith Levene. In 1996 the Sex Pistols met again without Sid Vicious, who died on February 2, 1979, for a world tour that they repeated in 2002, 2004 and 2008.

In 2016, during his first PIL concert in Santiago, Chile, John was thrown a bottle of beer, producing a cut. In spite of everything, Lydon exclaimed “what a fucking coward” (who fucking coward), and decided to continue his show, tying a towel over his head as a bandage, being acclaimed by the public present.
