He's minding the bollocks

It has been about 30 years since Johnny Rotten did anything meaningful. No, PIL doesn't count, with the possible exception of "Rise." My days as an adoring fan dictate that I must click on every article I see about him. When Johnny's at his cantankerous best, it's truly something to behold. But age changes people, makes us think of silly things like the future and reputations. Johnny has to eat so he has to consider things like the Sex Pistols brand. He can't let just anyone drop the c-bomb on Duffy.

Anyway, it seems he has a beef with the London Olympics. He thinks the games will bring on a ton of debt to a country that's already in the hole and the money could be put to better use. Reasoned points, one and all. To be fair, the organizing committee is hopelessly out to lunch. In addition to wanting the Sex Pistols to take part in the closing ceremonies, they also wanted The Who to perform - including Keith Moon. I'm sure he'll get right on that.

I know this because I read an article about it in Forbes today. OK not the Keith Moon bit, I already knew he was dead. Yup, the girl with the punk rock roots read an article about the Sex Pistols brand in Forbes. No need to rub it in, I'm already hanging my head in shame.

Umm...they know Sid's dead too, right?

I must say though...HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I would love to see them do "God Save the Queen" for the closing ceremonies.

Well you have to wonder due to the mature of the Olympic Committees job tasks if they actually are totally unaware of all the things that happen in popular society. They are all head up the ass of non-professional athletes. So how in the world would they even know if a rock band that had it's real hay day decades ago is even relevant anymore.

And FORBES?!?!? Wow! If you had told the sex pistols at the beginning one day they will write articles about your brand in Forbes they would have responded with "man you need to share that blow with the rest of us!"
