I hope the picture shows up.
Johnny Rotten was on a Hollywood soundstage to tape an episode of "Judge Judy," a show that's similar to "The People's Court."
Williams, who says he was fired, wants $5,000 in lost wages. Lydon, though, claims Williams quit the band four days prior to the start of the tour. The producers of "Judge Judy" apparently convinced both parties to appear on the show to settle their differences. The episode has been taped and will be aired during the November ratings period.
"As you can understand, Mr. Williams is a very dificult person to work with," Lydon tells Judge Judy after she became exasperated with the drummer and gave him a stern talking-to. The Judge then thanked the ex-Pistols frontman for his patience.
JOHN LYDON: There's no point in me wasting money on separate individual hotel rooms, when I'm perfectly able to share. And I'm apparently the pop star.
JUDGE JUDY: Don't play something for me that doesn't say what you purport that it doesn't say. It doesn't say anything about his acknowledging that he assaulted you. Stop! Say nothing else! Mr. Lydon, you have almost been very patient, sir. (The court laughs).
LYDON: Well, as you can understand, Mr. Williams is a very difficult person to work with, and I think this is classic him.
Robert Williams, former Captain Beefheart drummer. That show won't air until next month, but as some newspapers have already noted, Lydon walked away the winner
