John Lydon – Anger is An Energy: My Life Uncensored

One of the great icons of popular music, John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) is to appear at the historic Albert Hall in Manchester to launch his autobiography Anger is An Energy: My Life Uncensored.

John Lydon will be taking part in an exclusive no-holds-barred live onstage interview with DJ/writer Dave Haslam, discussing his turbulent life, from his beginnings as a sickly child of immigrant Irish parents who grew up in post-war London to his present status as an alternative national hero, via the Sex Pistols, Public Image Ltd (PiL), collaborations with Afrika Bambaataa and Leftfield, compelling opinions and celebrated TV appearances.

He’ll also be signing copies of his autobiography (the book will be on sale at the venue on the night).
 
This will surely be one of Manchester’s most memorable pop culture events of the year.

We know flights and hotels were booked. We feel for everyone from the fans to the cast and crew who were a joy to work with. If we knew more we would tell you…

John Lydon: "This book is basically about the life of a serious risk-taker. I make things safe for other people to follow on in my wake. I’m a stand-up-and-be-counted fella – but that’s in a world where nobody seems to be able to count."

October 15th 2013

Tonight John Lydon will be presented with the prestigious BMI icon award for songwriters in London. The award recognises John's songwriting skills from the Sex Pistols right through PiL to his solo work; and the impact of his songs on popular culture. PiL Official would like to add its congradulations. Hats off to you Mr Lydon your words are life-changing.

Read John's thoughts on the award, and the industry, in his special BMI Q&A.

It couldn't be more appropriate and timely, really, considering the body of work I've just had to go through and endure to get my Public Image back up again, form our own label and be completely free and independent of the large corporations. This is very, very timely for me. And I think, you know, what took you so long? (laughter) - John Lydon, BMI Q&A
