You can read some of John's quotes, regarding his recent visit to Canada with the Bodog Battle of the Bands, on the ChartAttack website.

"Judging these bands isn't easy," notes Lydon with distinct sincerity. "We were taught the lesson that we're messing with people's lives. You end up being more careful on their behalf not to ruin their lives than you would with your own."

"We love these bands because they write their own songs," grumbles Lydon. "Anyone who has enough guts to stand up on a stage and perform original art deserves our respect and approval."

"It's so easy to cast things off as not being good, but when was the last time you put your fear aside and did something creative in front of others? This is a positive thing? these bands are afforded a lot. The only time I was ever on television in my time was when I was going to jail."

Rock legend visits Olustee

This year at the Olustee Reenactment not only did the Yankees show up but the British made an appearance as well. John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten, lead singer of the punk rock group the sex pistols and Public Image LTD., attended the Olustee festival this year. Mr. Lydon was here in Baker County to document and film the festivities and battle reenactment.

Rotten Productions, Mr. Lydon’s production company, attended the reenactment as part of a six series production that Mr. Lydon is filming of events around the United States.

Mr. Lydon found out about the battle reenactment from Nelson W. Winbush, who is a life member of the Sons of the Confederate Veterans. Mr. Winbush, a resident of Kissimmee Fl., was contacted by Rotten Productions about a segment of the series concerning alligators. During the conversations, Mr. Winbush suggested that Mr. Lydon come to Olustee and view the reenactment.

After the reenactment performance, Mr. Lydon said that "he was very impressed with the events of the reenactment, but was most impressed with how friendly Southerners are and the solidarity and pride in their heritage that they exhibit."

Mr. Lydon’s next stop was Kissimmee, Florida on Sunday to film a segment on saving the Florida alligators.

(updated)
 

BBC1, Meaning of Life, January, 2007 Courtesy BBCJohn will be appearing in the new 3 part series 'Meaning of Life' on BBC1. The first episode airs Sunday, January 14th at 10.15pm.

"I don't think anyone is religious. I don't deep down inside believe it. I think they're desperate and lonely and clinging to some vague hope that there's some meaning to all of this. There is, but it's 'get out the bloody house'."

Update: More information about the series, including quotes from John can be found in this article in The Independent.

 
 
Viewers in America should look out for John giving it some rabbit with Bronx Bunny and Teddy T in the new US version of 'The Bronx Bunny Show'. The series should air on the Starz Movie Network sometime in the near future.
