I have made no secret of my admiration of John Lydon aka Johnny Rotten.

“My advice is always to any member of the working class – Get Smart. Read as much as you can. And find out who’s using you.”

Like all of us, John is flawed and has a few regrets but he’s also honest, open and self-educated.

He revealed Jimmy Saville in the 1970’s and got banned from everywhere for that.
