John Lydon began his career as the lead singer and song writer of The Sex Pistols from 1976-79, put together by Malcolm Mclaren, horrifying the world as ringleader 'Johnny Rotten'. The Sex Pistols made their live debut at St Martins College of Art, November 6th 1975. His scintillating vocal delivery and forthright lyrics – matched with the band’s power and energy – soon saw the Pistols build up a word-of-mouth following. Despite John vehemently rejecting the term, the Sex Pistols found themselves at the forefront of what would later become known as “Punk”.

In their short spell, The Sex Pistols and Rotten delivered a message to the government and society of unacceptance and change, all the while, managing to piss off just about everyone in the process. 

Rotten went on to form the band PIL (Public Image LTD), dubbed as the worlds first post-rock band, they toured the world delivering a similarly controversial but necessary message. PiL went onto blend a variety of different musical styles; there were no rules. The change of direction would frustrate many Sex Pistols fans, but equally open up a variety of people to more eclectic tastes. PiL continued in one form or another through three decades, releasing numerous albums, and scoring some unlikely hits along the way.
