i've heard it al before / yes I've heard it all before

At their 'final' show in 1978 Lydon addressed the crowd with a sneer of, "Ever got the feeling you've been cheated?" Just under 30 years later,
in a room smelling mainly of trump, my heart sighed the same sentiment.

The NME gets all moody (and gets it right) about the Sex Pistols. And it's pretty much the same way I felt when I saw them in 1996 on the first reunion tour. It's all bit sad.

Why bother..which is the way I feel about just about almost every reunion tour or show I've seen....why...well we all know why, its the dosh....

This take on the Johnny and the boys was a bit more forgiving...
