Eric Davidson of the Dallas Observer caught up with Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten who talked about his own studio and upcoming solo album, and his disgust with record companies and their need for hit singles. “I’m not paying a record company to put me at number 10. I don’t need it,” he explained. “You know, you sell what you sell. But I’m not in this for the multimillions. Everyone I know in this industry who’s made a fortune is incredibly unhappy–lonely, isolated, lost and confused. Money doesn’t bring you happiness; it brings you jealousy from everyone around you. I’ve never been in the industry. We don’t need the industry. This is the Pistols here, and we don’t have a label, for fu**’s sake. Who cares!”
