Agreed. He can claim he did it all himself, but he needed a Jonesy or a Wobble or a Levene or an Atkins to actually execute his ideas.
Glen Matlock
Oops. Didn't mean to leave him off.
Bill Laswell and Afrika Bambaata deserve a mention here along with Leftfield. As a non musician it's fair to say John required the springboard.

Man, I don't know if I could even make a comprehensive list of everyone Lydon relied on to make his artistic statements.

Coincidentally I had the same thought back when I posted the bolded part above.

What about the short lived supergroup, Garfunkel, Oates, Messina & Lisa?

Rat Patrol wrote:Pete Farndon.

Honeyman-Scott got the accolades in the original Pretenders and Chrysse always shoots for (with mixed results depending on who) some sort of top-shelf lead guitar pro when it's time for a new album/tour, but Farndon's loss took their punk attitude away. And they've never really gotten it back despite Chrysse's purist leanings because she's very disciplined about the quality control. Which is why they've been a good studio band but have been more workmanlike than mesmerizing live (whereas they used to be a force of nature). Farndon didn't give a shit about quality control...he just aired it out with max attitude and energy. He was a great visual draw if you look at old vids, the way he was sneering around and thrashing away, unkempt hair and usually some sort of statement-clothing like a flag tied around his head. Took a long time for Chrysse to realize it because of the open wounds about his drug spiral and because his theatrics made his playing inconsistent, but she's been frank in interviews the last few years that he provided more thrust and balls to the mix than she ever realized.
yeah he looked the coolest
