Mr. Rotten says “Have…Una Corona Blanca… with me.”
Johnny Rotten forever changed music and culture in general. But once wasn’t enough. After the breakup of the Sex Pistols, John formed Public Image Ltd. (PiL), where he and the band continue to make exceptional records and tour the world. Through personnel and stylistic changes as well as adhering to radical ideals of artistic integrity, John has not only redefined music but the true meaning of originality.
Raise the volume to the max, turn up the bass and get ready to witness a ferocious life chronicled by current and former band members as well as luminaries like Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) as he recounts what he calls, “One of the best gigs I ever saw”. The infamous Ritz PiL show that turned into a riot. Hear from Flea (Red Hot Chili Peppers) about the odyssey he went through when he auditioned to play bass in Public Image Ltd, and when offered the job faced a hard choice whether to stay in the Chili Peppers or not. Other luminaries include Ad-Rock (Beastie Boys) and Moby. Most of all listen to John Lydon as he tells his story, in his own words from his home in some of the most intimate and open interviews ever filmed of the music icon.
