Sex Pistols singer John Lydon's pro-Trump views are more appropriate than you might realise.
John Lydon (better known as Johnny Rotten) has caused some degree of shock among fans after speaking out in defence of President Donald Trump during an interview on 'Good Morning Britain'. But, really, no-one should be surprised about what he has to say.

While promoting his limited edition artistic endeavour entitled 'Mr Rotten's Songbook', the former Sex Pistols star opened up about his feelings on America's leader, himself being a US citizen despite having been born and raised in London.
In an interview on 'Good Morning Britain', the former Sex Pistol said the "working class have spoken" and that he backed the people's decision over Brexit.
The ever-outspoken John Lydon has voiced his support for Brexit, saying that “the working class have spoken”, and saying that he would like to shake the hand of the “fantastic” Nigel Farage.
The former Sex Pistols singer and current Public Image Ltd. frontman, known as Johnny Rotten at the height of punk in the ‘70s, appeared on ITV’s ‘Good Morning Britain’ on Monday (March 27th) to promote his new book, the illustrated ‘Mr. Rotten’s Songbook’.
Always the source of decent copy, the topic of conversation turned to the EU referendum last summer. Perhaps surprisingly, given his general left-wing leanings, he said that he backed Brexit.

The building contains cartoon drawings done by John Lydon in the early days of the band.
A London building, which was once home to the Sex Pistols in the mid-1970s, has been awarded Grade 2* Listed Status by heritage body Historic England. Number 6 and 7 Denmark Street in Tin Pan Alley have both been given the second highest form of listing and will be persevered, despite the redevelopment currently happening in the area.
The Sex Pistols’ former home is now a listed building.
The building, a former silversmith’s workshop attached to a townhouse, was graffitied by Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon after he moved in during the mid-1970s. Lydon’s graffiti includes a drawing of the band’s manager Malcolm McLaren, holding a wad of cash and captioned “Muggerage”.

The former Sex Pistols singer believes that the BBC banned him because he had threatened to reveal Savile's behaviour back in 1978.
John Lydon has said that his ban from BBC radio for speaking out against Jimmy Savile at the start of his career still rankles with him nearly forty years later.
Lydon, the former lead singer of punk icons the Sex Pistols and now the post-punk veterans Public Image Ltd., gave an interview back in 1978 in which he said the disgraced former presenter Savile was “into all sorts of seediness. We all know about it but we’re not allowed to talk about it. I know some rumours.”
Speaking to Piers Morgan for his 'Life Stories' show, the 59 year old said: “I’m very, very bitter that the likes of Savile and the rest of them were allowed to continue. I did my bit, I said what I had to. But they didn’t air that.”
The iconic punk band's name and artwork adorns the designs of three new Virgin Money credit cards.
Virgin Money has unveiled a new range of credit cards featuring punk-themed designs based around the artwork of Sex Pistols albums and singles. That noise you just felt was punk’s final death rattle, by the way.
The bank has rolled out three designs for the new cards, two of which are variations on the artwork for the Pistols’ seminal 1977 album Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols (the only proper studio LP they ever recorded), and a third which uses the cover of 1976 single ‘Anarchy In The UK’.
What we imagined John Lydon's face looked like when he heard this news
It's fair to say that Vincent Furnier made musical history when he became Alice Cooper; an androgynous shock rocker who spent his teenage years pursuing a career in rock, and certainly not following in his preacher father's footsteps. From his inception, Alice Cooper went against the grain of what is accepted in modern music with over-the-top, gore-filled live shows which at one point saw a chicken get unwittingly murdered by his audience. However, the fun soon got out of hand when Alice Cooper and his band got fully submerged in the rock 'n' roll world of alcohol and drug abuse. Setting up the drinking club The Hollywood Vampires, Alice Cooper would be hospitalised more than once for his substance abuse issues, getting so obsessed with that world that he would not even be able to remember large chunks of his recording career.
