John Lydon's PIL ease
John Lydon has spoken about how easily he bonds with his Public Image Ltd (PiL) bandmates. The former Sex Pistols frontman claimed there is a "gel" between him, drummer Bruce Smith and guitarist Lu Evans, which will work well on their upcoming tour. He said: "This is the best gel of personalities for the music. "Out of all the people I have worked with, Lu and Bruce are closest to the work we will be doing." The outspoken singer also claimed his current act are more introspective than the punk pioneers. He added: "The Pistols is an absolutely brilliant band and we said a lot of things that needed to be said. "PiL is a more in-depth approach. It's self investigation, feelings and emotions. I love books, and all the best ones are people analysing their own emotions. You can learn from that." John, 53, recently reformed PiL and says he is happy to be back out on stage as he found life "dull" out of the public eye. He said: "I tried being a hermit and found it rather a dull lifestyle. If you have something to say then you want someone to pay attention or at least to have the opportunity for them to tell you to shut up and go away."Posted on 17 Dec 2009 07:30 to category : Music News
