Although being a real "solo" record John was keen to tour 'Psycho's Path' with a proper live band.

An unconventional band to say the least 'Psycho's Path live' consisted of a drummer and two keyboard players, plus the one and only Mr John Lydon! The line-up was recruited from largely unknown musicians, but included John's brother Martin; plus moral and protective support in the shape of John "Rambo" Stevens.

The line-up originally included drummer Robert Williams – but as you may have saw on Judge Judy – Williams left the band in the lurch at the beginning of the tour, and was quickly replaced.


Proposed Live Dates 1997


The 'Psycho’s Path' tour was due to start at the New Orleans, House Of Blues in August 1997, however, after disputes with a certain drummer the beginning of the tour was cancelled (see above). The remainder of the dates then eventually collapsed due to Virgin Records non-promotion, lack of interest, and insufficient financial backing.

"Thank you Virgin records for allowing me to make my album, and no fucking thanks at all for not promoting it. You lazy bunch of arsewipes!"
John Lydon: Los Angeles, The Palace, 13th August 1997
