John Lydon kept away from Sex Pistols series for being ‘too difficult to work with’
John Lydon has publicly complained he wasn’t asked to help on the forthcoming Sex Pistols biopic, saying it was disrespectful shit. Today there’s a sideways reason why. Jordan Mooney was interviewed in the Sun, and claimed “He would just be a saboteur and he wouldn’t bring much to the table… John argues for the sake of arguing. He’s a difficult person and I can’t say that part of him has changed at all.”
“As he’s got older, he’s only got more difficult – he’s contrary… John has got a few issues about his importance in the world so him not being involved is the best thing that can happen.”
Which to all intents and purposes appears to be true. It remains to be seen whether Lydon gets the series to court as he threatened.
