The upcoming biopic series about the Sex Pistols is happening without the involvement of Pistols
frontman John Lydon, a.k.a. Johnny Rotten.
Band ‘muse’ Jordan Mooney says the singer is “a difficult person” to work with and that “him not being involved is the best thing that can happen”.
True to form, Lydon has lashed out at the series, calling it “the most disrespectful s*** I’ve ever had to endure.”

Filming began last month.
