Getting Back!

After the break up and break downs of the Sex Pistols, in the late 70's, front man John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) formed the more experimental punk band Public Image Ltd. The had a heavy influence on the post punk scene of the 80's but split in 1992. After a 17 year absence, Lydon is getting the band back together for a Christmas tour of the UK! No word yet if this will culminate in a full world tour later on or a studio record, but Lydon did the same type of tour with the Sex Pistols in 2007.

Another influential punk band seems to be getting back on the horizon! Iggy and the Stooges will reunite with original guitarist James Williamson to tour and perform the band's debut Raw Power. Just earlier this year long time Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton passed away and it seemed whatever would have gone on with the band died with him. Now, after much consideration from Iggy Pop and the boys, the original line up of the craziest stage band ever will be getting back! Check back here as more info comes in!
