Home Celebrity Johnny Rotten is Back, with A Single About US General Stonewall Jackson

Johnny Rotten is back.The leader of the Sex Pistols is returning to the US with his other group, the less political Public Image Ltd. Their new album, “This is Public Image,” hits the US in October. The first single is called “Out of the Woods.” Its unlikely subject: famed US general Stonewall Jackson. From the press release: “is about Stonewall Jackson, one of America’s greatest generals and a tactical genius who, against overwhelming odds, helped win the battle of Chancellorsville in the War of Southern Independence.”

Really, I can’t make this stuff up.

  1. … and he won a few other battles too. If he hadn’t been mistakenly killed by his own men at Chancellorsvlle, I think the South would have won the battle of Gettysburg, which was a turning point of the war.
