John Lydon considers upcoming Pistols series ‘a bunch of nonsense’

Sex Pistols star Steve Jones has revealed he is a secret fan of Sir Cliff Richard.

The guitarist, 66, described the pop legend, 81, as “fantastic”, adding that he loves his movies including Summer Holiday.

“They are so innocent and wonderful,” he said. You should put them on before going to bed”.

Jones, whose band is the subject of the new series Pistol, said the Living Doll singer had previously appeared on his radio show in the US after meeting him in a coffee shop.

He added: “He called me a week later and came in with a guitar and I couldn’t get away from him. He was excellent. ”

Jones, who is based in LA, told the BBC that Sir Cliff “never really broke it in the US, although he did have a few hits”.

Drummer Paul Cook said that although he doesn’t like Sir Cliff, he is a fan of Shadows.

On Jones’ radio show in 2007, Sir Cliff supported the call for him to be knighted and said he would speak to the Queen.

But Jones is sure she would never give the title to a punk singer, let alone one with bandmates Glen Matlock and John Lydon who poked her in a song.

On Saturday, their ironic God Save The Queen was the best-selling single of the day.

The controversial song was first released to coincide with the Queen’s 1977 Silver Jubilee celebration.

It was No2 at the time despite being banned by the BBC but last Friday’s reissue could hit No1.
