Subscribe John Lydon

JOHN LYDON has put his differences with former SEX PISTOLS manager MALCOLM MCLAREN aside to pay tribute to the svengali, who lost his battle with cancer on Thursday morning (08Apr10).
The two men fell out during the Pistols' heyday and spent the last 30 years feuding with each other in interviews over copyright and royalties.
But, in a statement following the news of MCLaren's death, Lydon says he will miss the music mogul, insisting he was "always entertaining".
Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten, adds, "Above all else he was an entertainer."
The punk rock icon landed the role of Pistols frontman after impressing MCLaren with a mimed version of an Alice Cooper song.
