I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right: John Lydon Unleashes His World View Ahead Of Spoken Word Dates In Sussex

John Lydon changed the face of music and sparked a cultural revolution. The frontman and lyricist of the Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd (PiL) caused a political earthquake and transformed music for the better.

Lydon, who visits Crawley and Worthing next September, as part of a spoken word tour, has also produced a new book that is funny and insightful 

I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right is limited to just 10,000 numbered copies, each book includes an original signature from John.

In it, Lydon talks about the way he sees life, along with anecdotes from his unique and extraordinary career. 

Expect a pyrotechnic, one-off read from a true original who has always been, one step ahead.

The beautifully designed book covers a range of topics, including the way John sees the world, his response to current affairs, his battles with technology and much more. 

It features exclusive artwork, painted by John. 

Those who pre-order have the chance to win the first book off the press, a free book or tickets to John Lydon's spoken word tour, rescheduled now to Autumn 2021. 


Recenty Lydon explained to louderthanwar.com why he is so protective of a youth movement he helped to engineer:

"Unfortunately, a lot of the punk movement was incapable of understanding we had to go forward, or all of this would very quickly become a cliche. And horribly so, when I look at Green Day. 

"Yes, they're younger people, but what are they representing, really? 

"They're trying to repeat a previous lifestyle that they don't belong to. They're not showing me what it is to be them. 

"Until they do that, I'll show a negative interest in them." 

On October 14th 2020, one person who pre-orders the book will be picked at random. 

They will receive a refund of their book price and will be sent the first book off the press. The book is numbered 0001 and is a unique collectors' item.

That winner will also receive 2x VIP tickets (including meet'n'greet) to a UK tour venue of their choice (providing that venue has not already sold-out). 

Ten runners-up will also receive prizes.They will receive 2x regular tickets to any show (again, providing that particular show has not already sold-out). 

Books are only available via a direct link from the artist's website www.johnlydon.com. RRP: £45, limited edition, hand-numbered, individually signed by John Lydon

John Lydon's Q&A Tour: I Could Be Wrong, I Could Be Right visits Crawley, The Hawth, September 8th 2021 and Worthing, Pavilion Theatre, September 10th 2021. For tickets CLICK HERE.
