Today is John Lydon's 46th birthday. Lydon, better known as Johnny Rotten, first found fame as the lead singer of the Sex Pistols. Doomed Sid Vicious was the Pistols' notorious bass player, but he wasn't the band's original bassist. That guy was kicked out early on because, the story goes, the other Pistols discovered Beatles records in his collection.

To enter your name in the random drawing for the anarchistic Weekend T-shirt, tell me the name of the Sex Pistols' first bassist.
