John Lydon has been discussing his new book (and Arsenal soccer) in recent appearances on UK radio.

By John Curley 

John Lydon has been promoting his new book, which is titled Mr. Rotten’s Scrapbook. Lydon spoke with XFM London’s Ian Camfield about the book recently. (Radio listeners in the New York City area might remember Camfield from his time as a DJ at the now-defunct K-Rock.) Lydon’s book is a limited edition, and he spoke to Camfield about how the book came about as well as other topics.
