Sex machine guns the frontman struck a deal at the center of a legal dispute between John Laydon and his former allies, likening it to “slavery”.

Lydon, better known as Johnny Rotten, is currently being sued by former bandmates Paul Cook and Steve Jones so they can be used in the band’s iconic background catalog Pistol, Danny Boyle’s upcoming TV show about the band’s consistent history.

Cook and Jones noted that the Group Members Agreement (BMA) was signed in 1998 to allow licensing decisions to be made on a majority basis.

But Lidon insists the music cannot be used in a TV series without his consent.

Lydon, who appeared in court earlier today (July 21), called the series “the most disrespectful I’ve ever experienced.”

“BMA has never been used in anything we have done since 1998,” he said.

Lidon went on to describe the trial as “poison” and “trap”: “I don’t understand how Steve and Paul think I have the right to demand that I do something that my moral heart and soul don’t agree with without my involvement. .. ”

However, Edmund Cullen, who represented Cook and Jones, accused QC Lidon of giving “false evidence,” which he later denied.

Lidon also claimed that the legal documents “scare” him and that he “didn’t understand” what a BMA was when he first signed it.

Elsewhere, drummer Cook said earlier this week that the band “probably went for good” amid an ongoing legal dispute with Lidon.

“I thought our relationship with John would deteriorate when we used it,” Cook said in a witness statement. “Maybe Steve [Jones] and I had a very good relationship with John for many years to maintain a good relationship, and we had to be tougher. ”

Lidon first participated in the project in April. He said Sunday Times neither his participation nor his consent was requested.

Directed by Boyle (Naked millionaire, Trainspotting), Pistol stars Game of Thrones Maisie Williams Jordan Mooney (aka Pamela Rook) and Little onesJones is like Toby Wallace. The role of Lyson is played by Anson Boon, while Louis Partridge portrays the late Sid Visit.

It is expected to be aired Disneya well-known FX channel next year.
