That's a joke![edit]

Any more-knowledgeable-than-I PiL fans wanna have a go at fixing this?

keith levene. (julian keith levene) same initials as the man he founded public image ltd (p.i.l) with, john k lydon.pils first groundbreaking and best guitarist.levene did what learning guitarists are supposed to, practice , practice ,practice.he virtually re wrote the guitar manual, deliberatley incorpating suuposed"misstakes" in his chords to see if they could become valid.lydon still rates him as the best guitarists he has ever known and worked with."he made a guitar do things that wasnt meant to be possible" keith played on the first four albums before a row over a mix of this is not a love song seen levene leave the band in 1983.the band lost some substance with the departure of wobble and his dub deep bass shrills but, once levene left the band became in my opinion ordinary and un original.stripped bare of any original guitaring etc.if lydon was the face keith was the sound. it became the johnny rotten cabaret band.keith released some solo material himself which didnt really have the same impace then dissapeared for a while before re surfacing some three/four years ago. he now attempts a sole product called murder global www.murderglobal.com he has released a solo ep under this name but has been very quiet again of late with murder global and the website has remained dead for three years.he can still be contacted there.sudden bursts of news is followed by months of slilence. thats keith!rumours of a pil reformation still creep out but as yet nothing seems planned.pil was rottens best band.where the nihilsm of the sex pistols seemed to be the end of something pil was a beginning. mark william worth. 6 jan 2005.

John K. Lydon? That's a joke! (

Apart from that. It's pretty accurate. Wwwhatsup (talk) 02:25, 6 December 2007 (UTC)[reply]

For future editors' reference, his last name is spelled Levene (not Levine). -- Gyrofrog (talk) 02:50, 16 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Sex Pistols template[edit]

Someone added the {{Sex Pistols}} template. I've removed it as this article isn't directly relevant to that subject. Public Image Ltd is listed in the template, but Keith Levene isn't, so I don't think it's appropriate for this article. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 14:35, 17 April 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Verifying Edits Edit Wars|2019[edit]

@Ponyo:The inputs included in these contributions or specifically this edit here, is it acceptable for this encyclopedian article? Is there also a way to send a report if users Kathleen M. Bonczyk and Johnnyrottens for investigation as possible "sockpuppetry" accounts? Thanks again. Chanyeol Hyung82 09:45, 21 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Definitely not acceptable, Chanyeol Hyung82. I've removed it from the article history and blocked the Johnnyrottens account as an obvious sock/meat puppet of the blocked editor Kathleen M. Bonczyk. I've also semi-protected the article from edits from new accounts and unregistered users. -- Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 20:30, 21 February 2019 (UTC)[reply]
