Wholesome Johnny Rotten Says Drugs are for Entertainment

Punk rock legend Johnny Rotten says that Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse are just like his late bandmate Sid Vicious who died of a drug overdose in 1979 and after murdering his girlfriend.

Rotten says that they are dying a long, slow, sad death.

He says,

“You know you can use drugs for entertainment but you should be quiet about it. That shouldn’t be your center showpiece.

There’s not much going on in their head with them. They’re not thinking. They’re not doing this for the right reasons.

They obviously don’t enjoy what they’re doing. And that’s why you turn to drugs. And that’s what happened with Sid, he wasn’t happy about what he couldn’t do.

It’s a slow suicide and it’s a cry for help because they’re in pain, they’re in mental pain. And this is a disgusting industry because people just cut you dead. The general public aren’t too wise about what that means to be constantly in the limelight. It’s a pain in the f—ing arse.”
