Corey Taylor Is Not Taking Any Sh*t On Tour

Surprise!  John Lydon Is One Tough S.O.B.

John Lydon (aka:  Johnny Rotten) was performing a show with Public Image Ltd. in Chile a couple of days ago when he was pelted with a bottle, which caused him to bleed from his forehead.  Lydon and security tried to find the culprit, which seemed unsuccessful.  Lydon called the fan “a f*cking coward,” but then exclaimed, “We continue!” because even at 60, he’s a total badass.
