Sham 69 Clashes with Sex Pistol on the way to CBGB

“Punk legends John Lydon and Jimmy Pursey came to blows outside the US embassy as they queued for visas…There has been bad blood between the pair since the Seventies…Former Sex Pistol Lydon ignored Pursey’s offer to shake hands and threw coffee over him, while the Sham 69 singer responded by kicking his punk rival….Pursey was waiting for a visa so he could travel to New York for a benefit gig in aid of the CBGBs club…” [BBC]

Sham 69 are at CBGB tonight and tomorrow (Aug 28-29).

WFMU has Sham 69 audio.
