Singer SANDIE SHAW has condemned veteran punk rocker John Lydon for his behaviour at a recent awards ceremony.
The Puppet On A String hitmaker attended the Mojo Honours List awards ceremony last month (Jun08), where Lydon picked up the Icon Award.
But she was unimpressed by the star's bad attitude and has accused him of being out of touch with modern times.
She explains, "The biggest gaffe of the evening was by Johnny Rotten. He has turned into a very odd caricature of his former Sex Pistols self.
"When given his award he insulted and swore at everyone present. While this may have gone down well during the punk era, it is out of step with these pragmatic times.
"Some things just don't age well."
