Gandhi and Johnny Rotten

Johnny Rotten

“Anger is an energy” according to John Lydon (Johnny Rotten) of the Sex Pistols and Public Image Limited (PIL). In a recent interview with Andrew Graham-Dixon on the BBC’s Culture Show, he clarified what this credo “Anger is an energy” means:

“If anything, it is in opposition to violence, which I don’t ever think solves anything ultimately. Gandhi has always impressed me with that idea of passive resistance. What a marvellous scheme to come up with, and it worked, it did work!”
