Lemmy: 'Lydon Sold Drugs At Hawkwind Gigs'

Subscribe to John Lydon alerts

Punk icon John Lydon used to sell drugs at Hawkwind concerts.
Former band member Lemmy, who now fronts hard rockers Motorhead, didn't have a clue who the Sex Pistols star was when he confronted him at a punk gig in 1977.
Lemmy tells Spin magazine, "I was standing at the bar, and this bush behind me said, 'I used to sell acid at all-night shows...' and I turned round and it was Johnny Rotten.
"I remembered him - he used to have long hair, with pockets full of drugs."
