Punk icon John Lydon has lost new Public Image Ltd. song lyrics and ideas in a house fire.
The This is Not a Love Song singer has revealed his London home was destroyed in a blaze earlier this month (Jul11) - as he was preparing to take the stage for a show in Italy.
No one was harmed in the fire, but Lydon now has the task of rewriting the song lyrics for new PiL tracks.
He tells the Bbc, "My wife rang me up just before we were going on stage (and) said, 'Oh John, I don't want to disturb you. The house has burned down.'"
