Interesting interview with John Lydon (Johnny Rotten)
« on: April 30, 2012, 08:36:53 PM »

"Lydon also speaks openly about the death of his stepdaughter, Arianna Foster - aka Ari Up, a member of the all-female punk band The Slits.

He said of Foster, who died in 2010 from cancer: 'Arianna didn't need to die and that's a very, very tough burden on her mother to know that.

'She knew she had cancer and she deliberately ignored it and went for lunatic left-wing crackpot theories. And that will kill you stone dead. Every single time.

'If you want to survive something as curable as breast cancer, do not go to the far-out loonies. But, ultimately, those are decisions Arianna made herself and some of us in the family think it was almost suicide.'"
