  1. This is a side of Johnny Rotten we have never seen and it’s kinda nice. He usually has a wall up around his thoughts and especially his emotions so this a unique video in that sense.

    • A really good watch is The Filth and the Fury.
      He cries about Sid and is very open.
      That went straight to my soul. When Mr. Rotten says something like this, I believe him 100%.

    • He’s definitely a sweeter and more vulnerable person than he likes to portray. Lots we don’t know about him I’m sure

    • +Mike nobody said he’s not open and honest. I would have said very rarely instead of never in the original comment though. He is just very standoffish and guarded 99.9% of the time so other than this and when he talked about Sid in filth and fury we never see him being so vulnerable.

    • +Beth Bush you’re right i shouldn’t have said never but yes 99.9% of the time.

  2. RIP KEITH FLINT WILL ALWAYS BE ANOTHER JOHNNY ROTTEN OF OUR GENERATION! HIS DEATH IS A SHOCK AND A TRAGEDY!
    (1969-2019) LISTEN TO JOHNNY ROTTEN HE IS REACHING OUT AND CARES!!!!

  3. Johnny speaks the truth-so what if he’s a bit stocious – too many suicides happening and not just with celebs-R.I.P Keith

  4. Thank God for Johnny 🙏 he will be there he lost Sid and he is right just tell someone you need them

  5. I just can’t believe it. Still. I’m completely gutted and heartbroken
    😢💔 Gutted gutted gutted.

    This is such a nice gesture of Johnny. Sad that those ppl with him are cutting him off. But Keith..
    He’s been such an important part of my upgrowing life and teen years.
    They were the only band that’s ever succeeded in bringing dance/electronic/rave music together with rock. This combination was and is unique. And since I was on the alternative rock side before Prodigy came into my life, I met my best longtime rave-friends trough prodigy. We emerged and became friends. Still till this day. If it wasn’t for Prodigy I would not have met them.

    In the 90s growing up, ravers (thats how they were called in Holland ha) and rockers didn’t want anything to do with each other really. But Prodigy changed that and those two different backgrounds started talking.
    And so we all got the best of both worlds, haven’t we? Forever grateful. Rest in Power Keith. Your energy will be with us forever. ❤️

    Let us promise to never forget him. I haven’t read one bad word about him. That’s nice. He was such a kind hearted guy behind this Warrior attitude.

    🎶❤️💪🏼DEATH OF A PRODIGY-DANCER.. AND A TRUE WARRIOR ❤️💪🏼🎶

    “Too weird to live to rare to die,” Hunter would say. And I agree.

    • The “Apparently you’re not with us … so you’re not supposed to be filming” guy is a tool. If John Lydon wants to answer and obviously he did … stand back and LET HIM you imbecile. So glad TMZ got this, very moving 😥

  6. I am so sorry for your loss. I am so sad for Keith, why would anyone leave that man alone, ever? I would never. My heart is broken, too Johnny. Keith saved my life in the 90’s with his music, he showed me how to fight when everyone would just walk over me, I had no idea – any one of his fans would have jumped in front of a bus for him. I’m sick over it. I am so sorry for your loss, Johnny. So glad you are reaching out, I would but I am nobody.

    • 2018 Autism Awareness Ambassador You’re not nobody. You’re awesome 2018 autism awareness ambassador goddammit!!

  7. Damn that hit hard ! Wasn’t expecting this much sympathy and dad like figure from Johnny !

    • I’ve done my homework on “our Johnny” and he is a VERY IMRESSIVE human being. Have a dig, and you will not be dissapointed.

    • Johnny is a goood man, a famous persons persona is diifferent to the real person outside of what they can be famous for. Bless him for those lovely words, and he is spot on about people not being there for each other. Poor Keith, just a terrible shame.

  8. As for Mr. Rotten….damn. I love him. Much respect for this amazing human being. And for Keith………it’s so unfair and sad that the one thing we need in the world is so easy to show and receive, yet negative forces are successfully taking this from us without our permission

  9. Who cares if he’s drunk he just lost someone he cared deeply for!!! Johnny is not so Rotten after all.

  10. I AM GUTTED BY THE LOSS OF KIETH FLINT…HE WAS AS TALENTED AND AS LEGENDARY AS THEY EVER CAME….A TERRIBLY CRUSHING LOSS…RIP KIETH

  11. Damn, it was hard enough to hear about Keith…but that plea from Johnny Rotten hit right in the feels.

  12. The words ‘people don’t look after each other any more’ it is true, too many people are now too consumed with their own issues to see someone else’s pain. People seem to only gravitate towards personal gain. People often don’t know what they have till its gone. This world is a more hostile and hateful place than during war times. The only way is down for this world now, too many people being brought up to only think about themselves. It is sad but true.
