Thank-you Johnny Rotten

When I was 14 a new personality crashed into the UK music scene. His name was Johnny Rotten. I remember talking to my buddies on the school field and it was a very exciting time. New bands, new ideas, great songs and great concerts. I rushed to the record store and purchased my copy of Bollocks. I even brought it to school and remember my math teacher commenting that he would love to take it into the staff room! Back then 21 seemed like a lifetime away (yep a whole 7 years). But now I’m 49 and it is truly hard to fathom where all the time went. But I still remember the sheer excitement that Johnny, Joe + Mick, Hugh + JJ, Elvis, and all those other cats created. It was a great time to be a teenager!
