Lemmy: 'Lydon Sold Drugs At Hawkwind Gigs'

Punk icon JOHN LYDON used to sell drugs at HAWKWIND concerts.
Former band member Lemmy, who now fronts hard rockers Motorhead, didn't have a clue who the Sex Pistols star was when he confronted him at a punk gig in 1977.
Lemmy tells Spin magazine, "I was standing at the bar, and this bush behind me said, 'I used to sell acid at all-night shows...' and I turned round and it was Johnny Rotten.
"I remembered him - he used to have long hair, with pockets full of drugs."
