You ignorant mother fucker.

John Lydon was the founder of PiL, yes. But he has never, ever used the name Johnny Rotten in association with PiL. This was my point, sorry if you were too busy picking zits to get it.

The distinction was an important one at the time, one that Lydon himself emphasized in interviews. Johnny Rotten was a fictitious character in a punk band; the role was played by John Lydon. John Lydon the actual musician works in PiL; Johnny Rotten the fictitious character doesn't.

Hehe You're the one calling me ignorant. The guy was simply asking if it was Johnny Rotten, sure, he's known as both. And sure, maybe Johnny Rotten (the character) wasn't "associated" with PiL, but John Lydon is the same guy. So just pointing that out. Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. I am sure you're music knowledge is vastly superior to all others, no need to take your dick out though all the time...We're all learning something new here.

i've seen PIL a couple of times and am looking forward to this. i put Rise up here because i would love to see Sting come out and do his part on the song. Akthough i doubt that would happen based on Mr. Lydon's words and feelings from 2007 (http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=81397):

When asked by Britain's Virgin Radio about other bands who've recently reformed for a tour, frontman Johnny "Rotten" Lydon wasted no time giving his honest opinion, calling Sting — who is currently touring with the reunited POLICE — "a soggy old dead carcass." The prototypical punk continued, "Listening to 'Stink' try to squeak through 'Roxanne' one more time, it's not fun. It's like letting air out of a balloon."

But then again, he says lots of shit and Stink might think the above was pretty funny.

Let me put this on a level that even you might understand. Captain Kirk and William Shatner are not the same person. Captain Kirk was not in Boston Legal.

Most definitely not. They'll struggle to fit all the PiL classics into the set length they'll get. I'm just hoping we don't get slighted Albatross since they'll have a shorter set. If they do that, Public Image, Careering...
Shit, I'll be happy with whatever.

See, if someone tried to explain to me who some guy in Boston Legal was and they said it was Captain Kirk I'd accept it as the same person because, y'know, he played the character who's name is more famous than himself

As for PiL
They're great. I look forward to them. I still cringe when I hear him 'singing' about it not mattering about people's colour is when his entourage beat up Kele from Bloc Party (a huge PiL fan) in a racially motivated attack a year or so ago though
