Джон Лайдон

Дата рождения: 31. Январь 1956

Джон Джо́зеф Ла́йдон — британский рок-музыкант, фронтмен и основной автор песен панк-группы Sex Pistols , а позже Public Image Ltd. Джон Лайдон был «истинным мозгом Sex Pistols» и вошёл в историю рока как «один из самых влиятельных и почитаемых» исполнителей.

В середине 1970-х годов Лайдон оказался в центре внимания британских СМИ как выразитель протеста против музыкального истеблишмента, британской классовой системы и монархии; впоследствии — приобрёл репутацию остроумного комментатора, теле- и радиоведущего, а также — по выражению обозревателя журнала Q — «статус бесценного национального достояния».

Занял 87-е место в списке радиопередачи Би-Би-Си «100 величайших британцев» в 2002 году.

„Anger is an energy. It really bloody is. It’s possibly the most powerful one-liner I’ve ever come up with. When I was writing the Public Image Ltd song ‘Rise’, I didn’t quite realize the emotional impact that it would have on me, or anyone who’s ever heard it since. I wrote it in an almost throwaway fashion, off the top of my head, pretty much when I was about to sing the whole song for the first time, at my then new home in Los Angeles. It’s a tough, spontaneous idea. ‘Rise’ was looking at the context of South Africa under apartheid. I’d be watching these horrendous news reports on CNN, and so lines like ‘They put a hotwire to my head, because of the things I did and said’, are a reference to the torture techniques that the apartheid government was using out there. Insufferable. You’d see these reports on TV and in the papers, and feel that this was a reality that simply couldn’t be changed. So, in the context of ‘Rise’, ‘Anger is an energy’ was an open statement, saying, ‘Don’t view anger negatively, don’t deny it – use it to be creative.’ I combined that with another refrain, ‘May the road rise with you’. When I was growing up, that was a phrase my mum and dad – and half the surrounding neighbourhood, who happened to be Irish also – used to say. ‘May the road rise, and your enemies always be behind you!’ So it’s saying, ‘There’s always hope’, and that you don’t always have to resort to violence to resolve an issue. Anger doesn’t necessarily equate directly to violence. Violence very rarely resolves anything. In South Africa, they eventually found a relatively peaceful way out. Using that supposedly negative energy called anger, it can take just one positive move to change things for the better. When I came to record the song properly, the producer and I were arguing all the time, as we always tend to do, but sometimes the arguing actually helps; it feeds in. When it was released in early 1986, ‘Rise’ then became a total anthem, in a period when the press were saying that I was finished, and there was nowhere left for me to go. Well, there was, and I went there. Anger is an energy. Unstoppable.“ Anger is an Energy: My Life Uncensored
