Hardcover with dust jacket, black paper over black cloth spine with silver spine titles, 16 by 24 cm, ix 329 pp., 28 black and white photos. Near fine in very good jacket with light yellowing on the rear panel. Signed “Johnny Rotten was here!” on the half-title page (it looks as if he started with a marker that was dying and finished with a new marker). From the publisher: “Punk has been romanticized and embalmed in various media. It has been portrayed as an English class revolt and a reckless diversion that became a marketing dream. But there is no disputing its starting point. Every story of punk starts with its idols, the Sex Pistols, and its sneering hero was Johnny Rotten. In Rotten, Lydon looks back at himself, the Sex Pistols, and the "no future" disaffection of the time. Much more than just a music book, Rotten is an oral history of punk: angry, witty, honest, poignant, and crackling with energy.” And why not get the facts from the King Punk himself – “Here I am all these years later and all these people are telling me what punk means, but every single one of these arseholes out there can go fuck themselves.” I earned the title King Of Punk and I am, therefore… so until I concede my crown, no one will tell me what to do!” Dust jacket present. First Edition.
