When asked about the possibility of a Sex Pistols reunion, Mr. Lydon had the following to say:
“No. That’s done. Never say never, but it wouldn’t be a reunion. We’re trying now to get to like each other outside of work and I think that’s more important to us as human beings. Because when we get back on stage, all those old resentments just keep creeping in, and it gets foolish. I want to remember them as my friends. We did enough as a band. Can’t go back at it, don’t want to. Can’t write for it, don’t need to. That served its place in history really well. And now, I’m serving my place in history really well, in a completely different way. Welcome to progress. It doesn’t always make you popular, but I’ve never done this for popularity.”
Lydon’s other band, Public Image Limited (PiL), recently released their tenth studio effort overall, What the World Needs Now, and are embarking on a U.S. tour from Halloween through November 29th (of which a complete list of dates can be viewed here).
