Johnny Rotten Takes a Ride With the LA Times

LA Times music editor Randall Roberts took a two-camera cruise with Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, otherwise known as Johnny Rotten. Among other interesting tidbits from the ride, Lydon professes a love for Mexican Viagra, reveals he used to live in the “religious suburbs” of Pasadena, and takes credit for helping to bring about the modern day paparazzi, who he says “had a free hand with us” back when the Pistols were still big news. Lydon has lived just off the beach in Venice for the past 20 years.

Lydon is also profiled by Roberts in the paper, where talks about “Mr. Rotten’s Scrapbook,” a $750 collection he’s put together of “drawings, paintings, photos, poems, scribbles and reminiscences.”
