Band Reunion No. 47,672: PiL
Public Image Limited (or PiL) is getting back together for five shows in December. The group, headed by John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols), is reuniting to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his band's record, Metal Box, and has not played together in 17 years.
The new version, which includes former guitarist Lu Edmonds, former drummer Bruce Smith and a new bassist named Scott Firth, will play five gigs in the United Kingdom, which means they should hit OC by summer 2010.
The band says it will play material from all eras, not just Metal Box.
