After posting the Tom Snyder vs John Lydon 1980 television appearance on yesterday's AMOEBLOG I got off list emails from three people about it. One AMOEBLOG reader linked me to a video clip that I never knew about. It was from 1997, when tour/session drummer Robert Williams took John Lydon to court TV -- specifically the Judge Judy Show -- to sue the former Sex Pistol. And all I can say is, God I love YouTube, since thanks to it we get to see all these classic TV moments that we missed first time around or saw but want to watch again, including this one from ten years ago when John Lydon (in classic form) appeared on Judge Judy. Surreal TV for sure! In case you don't have the time or patience to check out the seven minute clip below, the result was that Judge Judy sided with Lydon and not the bozo (or so he appeared to be on national tv) who filed suit against Johnny Rotten.
