After fronting the Sex Pistols, John Lydon formed post-punk originators Public Image Ltd (PiL). Widely regarded as one of the most innovative bands of all time, their music and vision earned them 5 UK top 20 singles and 5 UK top 20 albums.
With a shifting line-up and unique sound that fused rock, dance, folk, pop and dub, Lydon guided the band from their debut album First Issue in 1978 to 1992’s That What Is Not before a 17-year hiatus.
Lydon reactivated PiL in 2009, touring extensively and releasing the critically acclaimed albums This is PiL in 2012 followed by What The World Needs Now… in 2015.
John Lydon, Lu Edmonds, Scott Firth and Bruce Smith continue as PiL. They are the longest stable line-up in the band's history and continue to challenge and thrive.
