John Lydon of Sex Pistols fame as the host of his own "semi-series" TV show (only three episodes aired) on VH-1. Episodes included everything from the wanton destruction of Rock and Roll memorabilia to a visit to the Sundance Film Festival with wife Nora, and interviews of various film industry stars, interspersed with demented commentary by Lydon and general silliness.

Short lived, megalomaniacal demagoguery... hilarious.
A short lived "semi-series" starring John Lydon of Sex Pistols fame, which aired on Vh-1. Only three episodes ever saw the light of day before Lydon lost interest.
Episode one, among other things, treated viewers to Lydon dressed in ridiculously colorful garb, burning rock and roll memorabilia to the tune of the Overture of 1812 or some such classical fare.
Episode two was filmed primarily at the Sundance film festival, where Lydon met up with film industry celebrities, like Danny DeVito, Heather Graham and Kevin Spacey (if I remember correctly), among others. Great shots of him walking around town with his wife Nora, who looks amazing considering she was already in her 30's when she met Lydon during the Pistols' heyday.
Never saw episode 3.
All in all, an amusing show worth seeing, but it was bound to run out of steam quickly, just as the Pistols did.
