Doing the post-jungle media circuit, John Lydon has revealed that he should
have been on the Pan Am flight which exploded above Lockerbie back in 1988.
Speaking to the Scottish Sunday Mirror the former Sex Pistol said: “[My
wife] Nora and I should have been dead. We only missed the flight because
Nora hadn’t packed in time. We had a big row and then took the next flight
out. The minute we realised what happened, we just looked at each other and
almost collapsed.”

Lydon says that ever since that incident he has worried about his wife when she flys alone, and that it was the need to know that Nora had arrived safely in Australia (she was flying in half way through the series) that made him quit ‘I’m A Celeb’ half way through. He claims producers of the programme wouldn’t confirm Nora’s safety.

Talking of Lydon, the Sex Pistol’s ‘Anarchy In The UK’ has topped a poll in
Q Magazine as the most influential record of the 1970s. Beating Queen’s
‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and the Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’, the 1976 Pistol’s
track tops the survey in Q’s seventies special.

A spokesman for the magazine told reporters: “The 1970s are often remembered for disco, flares and platforms. The Sex Pistols unleashed themselves on an unsuspecting world, giving birth to a whole new musical movement which will continue to inspire musicians for generations to come.”

  • You know what I find funny? Fifteen years and he never mentions it – not even when he’s publicising his autobiography. Okay, maybe you could argue that he didn’t feel the deaths of so many people would have made for a comfortable chat show cicuit anecdote. But if that was the case: why would Lockerbie suddenly be an acceptable excuse for backing out of a game show?
