I’ll admit I’m still up for this, but a bit harder to enjoy seeing how Lydon turned into a Trumper… Don’t worship your heroes kids!

I’m a Sex Pistols fan, but even I can admit they just aren’t weren’t ever that interesting as human beings. Plus Sid and Nancy already did enough on the topic, and did it well.

Joy Division, The Fall, The Sex Pistols… For me one was a standard rock band with good branding, a precursor to ‘heroin chic’.
