Paul Weller On John Lydon!

PAUL WELLER has urged fellow Brit JOHN LYDON to stop clinging to the past – because the punk icon has become the “antithesis” of JOHNNY ROTTEN.

The Jam founder admits he shudders every time he sees Lydon on reality TV shows or hears of another planned Sex Pistols reunion. And he has two simple words of advice for the punk star: “Leave it.” Weller says, “I don’t really understand him anymore. He’s become the antithesis of what he once was. Does he need the money? “Perhaps he misses the adulation, the buzz. Nostalgia has become a whole industry in itself… and I don’t like it. You can never recapture what has gone.”
