Missed this when it was first broadcast and it isn't easy to find on the iPlayer but here's a link.

John, as always, is John.  Chastises a member of the audience for mumbling his criticisms and seems to try and blag a new kitchen from Ikea.

Here's the blurb:

Quote

Gideon Coe and an audience of 150 people in central London put their questions to the singer and performer John Lydon, the former lead singer of The Sex Pistols.

The programme explores John's return to live work as his group PIL reformed after a break of 20 years, with questions regarding his favourite places to play and the recent controversy surrounding his concerts in Israel.

He also talks candidly about his reflections on the punk fashions of the seventies and his feeling about the death of Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren. John was not adverse to exploring the song writing process to some of his best known songs and revealed that his Sex Pistols anthem God Save The Queen, is often misunderstood and was not condemning the Royal Family but merely questioning their role.

Through out the programme John Lydon is to the point, honest and very entertaining making this one of programme a revealing kind of music programme and one not to miss.

So take your seats alongside presenter Gideon Coe and get to know one of contemporary musicís leading figures a little better in An Audience With John Lydon

Sharon, that is a link to an executable file, not a pdf.  Removed.

Is the pdf then available for obtaining?

I wouldn't think an exe file would be an attack attempt, but surely, deleting was a good call. Interesting, maybe just the extension was wrong.
