Sex Pistols’ John Lydon takes aim at George Bush at Live At Loch Lomond

Plus Pete Doherty 'Fought The Law' at two-day festival

Sex Pistols closed this years Live At Loch Lomond festival last night (August 3) with a storming set which frontman John Lydon used to hit out at the newspaper claims that he is racist.

The singer also took aim at US president George Bush during the main stage set.

“I don’t know if anyone reads the newspapers, but they have a fucking liberty to call me a racist,” the singer angrily declared just before his band played ‘Holidays In The Sun’.


Lydon, who teased the mud-soaked crowd throughout the set, then slated Bush by demanding that the president be “erased”.

Sex Pistols played:

‘Pretty Vacant’


‘Baghdad Was A Blast’



‘New York’

‘No Feelings’


‘Holidays In The Sun’


‘(I’m Not Your) Stepping Stone’

‘No Fun’


‘God Save The Queen’


‘Anarchy In The UK’

‘Silver Machine’

The night before (August 2) Pete Doherty had headlined the Good Vibrations Stage, playing a solo set.

The Babyshambles frontman performed for an hour-and-a-half cluding crowd-pleasing Libertines tracks plus covers including The Strokes‘The Modern Age’ and Bobby Fuller‘s ‘I Fought The Law’, made famous by The Clash, in his set.

In keeping with his infamous shambolic behaviour, his set ended with a tirade of bottles and mud raining down on the star.

The two-day festival on the picturesque banks of Loch Lomond also saw performances from Happy Mondays, Groove Armada, and Idlewild.
