When the Sex Pistols were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame they boycotted the ceremony and sent the following letter in their absence:
Maybe Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons should take a few notes. You don't accept an award and then continue to bitch about its worth. For a group that's made their living selling autographs and mastering the art of merchandising, I'm surprised they don't get it more than they do. John Lydon has always been true to who he is, its a terrible shame when artists forget the reason they got into the business and who the real bosses are...the FANS. The fans are now bored with the drama and 1st world tears over problems that aren't worth the salt.
