John Lydon, (AKA Johnny Rotten) has created a book of his lyrics called Mr. Rotten’s Songbook, celebrating 40 years of songwriting.  It includes his handwritten lyrics to Sex Pistols and Public Image Limited songs, his notes, doodles and art. It comes out March 31st and is limited to 1,000 copies. He even created a sales video for the book. Watch below.

Each book is hand signed and individually numbered. Lydon says:

“It’s not as easy as you might think to write out the words. When you’re actually writing it, it’s amazing how confused you could become inside your own songs!”
