Johnny Rotten, Portobello Road, London

John Joseph Lydon (born 31 January 1956), also known by his stage name Johnny Rotten, is an English singer, songwriter and musician. He is best known as the lead singer of the late-1970s British punk band the Sex Pistols, which lasted from 1975 until 1978, and again for various revivals during the 1990s and 2000s. He is also the lead singer of post-punk band Public Image Ltd (PiL), which he founded and fronted from 1978 until 1993, and again since 2009. Since 2013, Lydon has held British, Irish and American citizenship.[1]

Additional info:

Andy Rosen started out as a music photographer working as a staff photographer on Record Mirror and Sounds and freelancing to NME, Melody Maker, The Face Magazine and most record companies during the burgeoning punk scene in the mid-1970s. As a friend and cohort of many who went on to become the biggest names in punk, Rosen had unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the musicians and artists of London’s early punk scene.

The images were recently exhibited (Jun 11- Jul 19, 2015) for the first time in 30 years, at the Proud Gallery, Camden Town. The last exhibit was at The Photographers Gallery in 1984. Most have rarely been published or seen.
