Sex Pistols' Johnny Rotten gives advice to new bands

Help

John Lydon's band, Public Image Ltd, is touring again for the first time in 17 years.

He has been playing at the Primavera Sound music festival in Barcelona where BBC Radio 5 live reporter Sam Huxley caught up with him.

The singer, formerly known as Johnny Rotten, says he sees himself more as an artist than as the sort of celebrity he has become.

He also gave some advice to new bands.
