John Lydon Towel On Head After Struck

To celebrate his 61st Birthday, watch back as the Sex Pistols legend proves his punk credentials.

John Lydon turns 61 today, and to celebrate we're looking back at the time the Sex Pistols legend proved just how punk he was. 

Back in August last year, Public Image Limited were playing a gig at a club called Blondie in Santiago, Chile, when Lydon was struck in the head with a glass bottle.

Despite bleeding, the former Sex Pistols frontman said: "what a fucking coward", before wrapping a towel around his head and shouting to the crowd: "We continue".

Lydon later took to Twitter to re-assure his fans he was fine, posting pictures alongside the caption: "Glass attack last night in Chile. No reflection on the rest of the crowd. Great gig. It lives."

Pretty hardcore for a guy in his 60s.
