Public Image Ltd.

Public Image Ltd.

Public Image arose from the ashes of the Sex Pistols, the group's original intent as much a reaction to that band as the Pistols were to 1970s rock & roll before them. Former head Pistol Johnny Rotten took back his real name, John Lydon, after the last Sex Pistols show on January 14, 1978. He conceived Public Image as a group organization to create "anti-rock 'n' roll" to embody what the more conventionally rock-rooted Pistols only sang about.
