Morning Music Funnies # 7 – John Lydon on Roseanne

On October 7, 1999 John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) was scheduled to appear on The Roseanne Barr Show. The show agreed to allow Lydon and his crew to shoot film behind the scenes as part of the deal.

Upon arrival, Roseanne’s battalion of supercilious staffers sprung into action. One snarky comment from Lydon about a life size Roseanne cardboard cutout put her backstage posse on red alert. Suddenly, Lydon found himself in a swirling vortex of bitchy handlers bent on shutting down the cameras and bum-rushing the recalcitrant Punk icon out of the building. This is a wonderful document that illustrates  all that’s wrong with celebrity culture and all that’s right with Punk.
