Billboard.com caught up with Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten about his claims that the group will be performing in Baghdad — and not just for the troops, but for the Iraqi citizens. Is he serious? “I’m deadly serious. Deadly serious,” Rotten responded. “It’s very close to happening. Let’s be logical, for what reason on earth would the people over there want to blow me up? That’s the bit that’s not understood. Unlike forcing Metallica on the Iraqi prisoners, I’m giving them a choice. They don’t have to come. The show will be free of charge. It would be a mean-spirited to be charging them in U.S. dollars. I will do it. I see no reason not to. They could use a good bleeding view of how the world is.”
