As well as appearing in Jesus Christ Superstar Lydon is to publish a new autobiography this year. The hardback version of the book will hit shelves in October. “This book is basically about the life of a serious risk-taker,” Lydon said. “I make things safe for other people to follow on in my wake. I’m a stand-up-and-be-counted fella – but that’s in a world where nobody seems to be able to count.” The as-yet untitled autobiography will follow Lydon’s 1994 book Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs.
