Sex Pistols playing Long Island... woo hoo

woo hoo... the sex pistols are gonna play jones beach (wantagh)

PISTOLS TO STORM U.S.

The SEX PISTOLS are planning to bring their anarchy back to the
U.S.A. with a summer tour. The band's original lineup -- singer
JOHN LYDON, guitarist STEVE JONES, drummer PAUL COOK and bassist GLEN MATLOCK -- have confirmed an August 21st show in Wantagh, New York, and an August 25th gig in Toronto, with more dates to be announced. "For the first ten years after the Pistols broke up, I didn't want to go back there," Lydon told Rolling Stone. "But I came round to realize that there's nothing to be ashamed of. I love what I did, and I love what I do."

so if john and george were still alive, and today decided to reunite with paul and ringo... that would be lame?

i dunno everyone's intitled to their own opinions... the whole "sell out" thing though just annoys me. good music is good music, wether it's made in the basement of a club or in a stadium with a corporate sponsorship across the outside

[opinion]With the Pistols - it is different. Let me lay out an argument here:

Johnny Rotten has always been soooo anti-establishment (and I LOVE him for that).

But, he has been under the radar for a few years, and PIL (for the youngsters...PIL is Public Image Limited, John Lydon's - a.k.a. Johhny Rotten - post-Pistols project) has not exactly been overly succesful (have they put anything out in the past five+ years?). So is he living off of past successes right now?

There is a sudden wave of "new (spare me on this one folks) punk" out there right now. Some corporate brain-trust says "ah, it is good to see a resurrgence - and it is SELLING like hotcakes!" Lydon and the rest of the LIVING Pistols (mind you - your questions was about "all of the Beatles" living) minus a dead Syd Vicious - agree to do two shows - both at large outdoor venues with ugly corporate tags - Hillfiger and Molson (imagine the Pistols playing something outdoors and before 9pm back in the day ).

I use the term sellout for those reasons...Lydon has been sooo anti-establishment for his whole career (while he was selling albums), and suddenly, he is joining a REUNION - not for benefit but for profit, at large outdoor venue with corporate tags.

Never mind the bullocks.[/opinion]

Hasn't beena good lineup in years. Best show last year was Aerosmith...Tyler kicked ass. Saw Mellencamp too...only my 9th time. The only thing I hate is they don't sell beer...I don't get that..most of the people that go to these shows are adults...

Whatever....just gotta smuggle in your own...

Punk as a nostalgia/oldies thing.

Is he gonna sing "I am an anarchist" with a straight face?
