The main problem was Johnny Rotten himself He is constantly bragging about himself and thinks he is God or something Nobody else does any good except for him All the band members were bad, all the other bands sucked yawn Plus he is also constantly contradicting himself lol Can t take this serious Another annoying thing, the story repeats itself also every time because everybody gets a say And

something Nobody else does any good except for him All the band members were bad, all the other bands sucked yawn Plus he is also constantly contradicting himself lol Can t take this serious Another annoying thing, the story repeats itself also every time because everybody gets a say And even though I lived the same kind of life as he and his friends did, I thought it was boring End conclusion What a boring book I ve lived this life, lived in a squad with other punks , visited the gigs of all the bands he is talking about, but Rotten is too annoying, every band sucks according to him Plus it was very repetitious This book is utterly fantastic I read this when I was 15 and was obsessed, not with the Sex Pistols but John Lydon as a person, his views and how he lives his life With the help of many of his musician friends NAMELY Chrissy Hynde who was everywhere from 1970 1990 , he tells his life story from growing up in Finsbury Park to PIL, up to it s publishing in 1994 I think the main point to make is that this is not another totez punk autobiography, John Lydon is farintelligent and anarchic This book is utterly fantastic I read this when I was 15 and was obsessed, not with

anarchic than anyone will ever give him credit for This is a truly insightful read I bought this about 6 years ago when I was a young impressionable 15 year old I read it like the bible I was never really into the punk scene, but it FASCINATED me I began to show up my punker friends with my Sex Pistol knowledge And it really helped me figure out a lot of things I began to carry this book wherever I went It had notes upon notes in it, underlines, circles, everything I studied this bookthan any of my textbooks Unfortunately I gave it to a friend to read and her mot I bought this about 6

friend, but she was fighting it She didn t believe and that s totally fine with me, but her parents had issues and felt that it was inappropriate See the thing with reading a book like this when you re 15 is your maturity level I saw the terrible things that happened in that book as a result of drugs and though Oh okay, bad, don t do that Others saw it as OOOOh Let s try that Sid Vicious did it So I think I am going to rebuy this book because it s really important to me to own this book I love music, I love people and it hit me at a really influential time in my life ( DOWNLOAD BOOK ) ⚕ Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs ♹ I have no time for lies and fantasy, and neither should you Enjoy or die John LydonPunk has been romanticized and embalmed in various media An English class revolt that became a worldwide fashion statement, punk s idols were the Sex Pistols, and its sneering hero was Johnny RottenSeventeen years later, John Lydon looks back at himself, the Sex Pistols, and the no future disaffection of the time Much than just a music book, Rotten is an oral history of punk angry, witty, honest, poignant, crackling with energy Malcolm McLaren, Sid Vicious, Chrissie Hynde, Billy Idol, London and England in the late s, the Pistols creation and collapseall are here, in perhaps the best book ever written about music and youth culture, by one of its most notorious figures First off, I have to admit that Lydon is right at the top of the list of people who have influenced me and who I hold in the highest regard.This book is entertaining, intelligent, and honest Lydon is a guy who can laugh at himself He is also a good storyteller he has the classic Celtic style courtesy of his Irish roots.So many artists from this era are dead and gone, if only one could survive to be the official voice of the first punk wave, I am glad it is John Lydon.Funny how a very small th First off, I have to admit that Lydon is right at the top of the list of people who have

very small thing can influence a person many years later..I am pushing 50 and still refuse to vacation in the Caribbean because of Holidays in the Sun I don t want to holiday in other people s misery the fact that I am not a fan of sun, sand and surf might also have something to do with it I would be interested in reading anything else he might publish, and hope he writes another book sometime soon Any kind of history you read is basically the winning side telling you the others were bad If that doesn t perfectly describe this book, I don t know what does I am of two frames of mind thinking about this book One is that I found John Lydon s stance on the entire punk scene to be outstanding, and one that I agree with also, so I m biased When the punk scene started it was something completely different than what it evolved into and a lot of punks now don t seem to realize that The fact t Any kind of history you read is basically the winning side telling you the others were bad

outstanding, and one that I agree with also, so I m biased When the punk scene started it was something completely different than what it evolved into and a lot of punks now don t seem to realize that The fact that it is a scene now is the greatest indicator of that Punk s origin wasn t about looking and thinking the same to fit in with a group I respect Lydon for recognizing that and harping on it so much throughout the book What wasn t interesting was how repetitive and bitter he still was about the Pistols I won t fault Lydon for his bitterness, I d be bitter as hell too, but 200 pages of incessant whining about it isthan my patience can take The book starts to lose it s emphasis on the contribution of the Pistols and turns into a giant manifesto on why Malcolm McLaren is the worst person on the planet But hey, he doesn t harbor any feelings of hatred toward him Ha I guess you should expect no less from Johnny Rotten though Despite the overabundance of bitterness, I still enjoyed this read It s written like John Lydon talks brash, nihilistic, narcisstic and incredibly entertaining It talks about the British punk scene like no other artist would be able to do in the same way I may not agree with a lot of Lydon s truths , but you can t deny that he was a major player in the punk world This book is worth a read just for that aspect alone I saw John Lydon on the Conan O Brian show and was impressed with his thoughtful intelligence He was also promoting this book, so I bought it.It is difficult to say whether I gained any insight to the Punk movement of the late seventies After reading this book I conclude that everyone involved was a bunch of illiterate reprobates who were anti everything, including each other The Sex Pistols glorified in their disgusting shenanigans on stage, got lots of trash thrown at them while they were p I saw John Lydon on the Conan O Brian show and was impressed with his thoughtful intelligence He was also promoting

illiterate reprobates who were anti everything, including each other The Sex Pistols glorified in their disgusting shenanigans on stage, got lots of trash thrown at them while they were performing and, unsurprisingly imploded without hope of recovery only a couple of years after they began.Most people who are remotely interested in this genre are familiar with Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungeon and their fast track to perdition, but this book only speaks of them peripherally I did find it ironic that they all hated Nancy so much because of her aggressive, abrasive and immoral character Uh, isn t that the embodiment of the Punk movement But they also hated her for getting Sid hooked on heroin I personally think his mother, a heroin addict, and Sid s supplier, had something to do with that, although no doubt, Nancy accelerated Sid s race toward destruction, but the reality is, no one takes you where you don t want to go.The book is narrated by many people, not just Mr Lydon, and I will give him credit that he does not censor anyone s commentary, even if it does not put him in a good light.Finally, I have to say I got tired of reading it, because regardless of what middle schoolers and emotionally immature adults think, dropping the F bomb every other sentence and describing how you trashed people s houses or how many women you were with, is actually a banal read I started racing through the last quarter just to finish it.I have already bought Lydon s second book, Anger is an Energy He was older when he wrote it Let s hope he s grown up a little as well This is as honest as you ll get from John Lydon, no conning, no overdone punk rock grandstanding Lydon talks about his spinal meningitis, his friends aka gang The Johns incl John Sid Vicious Richie and Siouxie Sioux s delight in owning home appliances Funny and sad and honest all the way. Who knew Lydon was such a good writer Anyone who s listened to his songs.I have a few questions how can the difference between holding individuality as the highest goal fit with the seemingly contradictory purpose of making music and fashion that is understandable to everyone, spanning through the range of economic and social classes And all the music that does that, these days anyway, is Pop or Top 20 Hip Hop, boasting individual stars as benign as flowers, and challenging the status quo ab Who knew Lydon was such a good writer Anyone who s listened to his songs.I have a few questions how can the difference between holding individuality as the highest goal fit with the seemingly contradictory purpose of making music and fashion that is understandable to everyone, spanning through the range of economic and social classes And all the music that does that, these days anyway, is Pop or Top 20 Hip Hop, boasting individual stars as benign as flowers, and challenging the status quo about as much And the individuality that is presented is marketed, bought and sold, and replicated for society by top dog execs with profits on the mind, not social change or personal rebellions And this is the music that spans economic and social classes I don t like that
