John-Lydon

John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) was performing with his band Public Image Ltd. (PiL) in Santiago, Chile on Sunday night when a concert goer hit him in the head with a thrown glass bottle.

The bottle left a gash in Lydon’s head about an inch long which was bleeding rather profusely. While a person, possibly a manager, went to the front of the stage to try and pick out the person who made the throw, Lydon wiped his wound with a towel that he eventually wrapped around his head.

In true Lydon form, he looked into the crowd and said “What a fucking coward” followed by a declaration of “We continue” before launching back into the set with the towel in place.
