it wasn't on pete, it was on the line itself. who pete is and what pete
writes / sings are two different things. and like I said, I don't agree with some
of what Lydon says, and he's not asking anyone to. I'm reminded of something
ringo of all people said that what groups need to do these days is basically
DISrespect the ones who came before them for that's what true rock is. dismiss it
and do your own thing. when ringo had his own label, he actually wanted the
sex pistols on it but couldn't get them. but anyway. where was I? oh yeah.
so what's this about that they should respect pete for he's "the godfather"?
wasn't that title bestowed on paul weller? marlon brando perhaps? pete has
never proclaimed himself to be a "godfather" or any of that crap. they shouldn't
do anything but stick to their guns. and that's what Lydon is doing here. I'm
someone who has read and heard a whole lot of stuff he's said about all types
of things through the years, and I'm often surprised and pleased at the same
time with his honesty. may not agree with whatever it is he says, but I'm
happy that there's someone in rock who isn't afraid to spill out what's on his
mind and refusing to cave in to corperate interests like a certain guitar wielder
tends to do at times. he's not saying anything to put up a front or hear
himself speak, he really means it. I'm sure if he said something negative about
someone else, you'd probably like him again.
as far as that reality show stuff goes, I think he quit like after two or
three days, and I don't blame him. ha! but like I also said, he tends to be a
hypocrite at times. don't we all? take the good with the bad.
