John Lydon on U2: There's No Life Experience in Any of Their Songs
John Lydon is "astounded" he hasn't been flooded with offers to perform at summer music festivals - insisting his band Public Image Ltd. is much more entertaining than U2. The outspoken punk star regrouped PiL last year for a string of dates in the U.K. in December, and they kicked off a 24-date American tour in April this year.
But the former Sex Pistols star admits the rockers haven't booked any festivals - while Irish band U2 was asked to headline England's legendary Glastonbury festival in June. He tells Britain's Daily Star, "We haven't had any offers. They have been quite negative, which has astounded us because PiL is the perfect festival band. You don't want U2 - that's a band that never should have existed. There's no life experience in any of their songs."
U2 were forced to pull out of Glastonbury after frontman Bono underwent emergency surgery for a back injury.
