John Joseph Lydon, also known by his former stage name Johnny Rotten, is an English singer-songwriter, television presenter and painter, best known as the lead singer of punk rock band the Sex Pistols from 1975 until 1978, and again for various revivals during the 1990s and 2000s.
He is the lead singer of the post-punk band Public Image Ltd (PiL), which he founded and fronted from 1978 until 1993, and again since 2009. Prior to that, he made a surprise move appearing on ITV's I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2004.
Throughout his life, Lydon has made controversial or dismissive comments about the British Royal Family and other subjects. Perhaps his most anarchic career move though was fronting a series of Country Life butter TV commercials!
