Ten years after its first publication this classic autobiography remains the definitive account of punk and a biting social commentary. Written by John Lydon the driving force of the Sex Pistols and PiL his perspective on the scene which changed the face of popular culture and the state of the country that spawned it are as relevant as ever. For a Britain still beleaguered by class and politics and still enthralled by punk his uncompromising attitude passion honesty and wit all hold resonance. Stripping away the myths and lies surrounding the story of the Sex Pistols Rotten tells the story of their formation rise and eventual demise set within the punk world and set against an oppressive social system. With contributions from key punk figures including Chrissie Hynde and Don Letts plus Sex Pistols' Paul Cook and Steve Jones Rotten is the ultimate inside story of punk bringing to life the movement which claimed the life of bassist Sid Vicious but refuses to die its own death.
