"Sid Vicious’ name came from Syd Barrett. It came from early Pink Floyd and a pet hamster - that’s not great, is it? How come this wasn’t noted as being hysterical and funny at the time? Sid himself got it, and he found it always hysterical." (John Lydon)

People have asked me, “What makes a punk?” After we’d retired, I was driving in Los Angeles, and somebody called out to me, “Hey, you’re driving a Cadillac. How’s that? How are you a punk if you’re driving a Cadillac?” I said, “What the fuck are you talking about? I wrote the book on punk. I decide what’s punk. If I’m driving a Cadillac, it’s punk.”
