Rotten Johnny Lydon does not approve, which is the better seal of approval. the six episode Gun is based on sex pistols guitarist Steve Jonesmemories, with Danny Boyle directing this punk cosplay-ization of the band’s rise and fall from 1975 to 1978. Boyle’s style is chaos, and GunBullet-point anarchy flies by as fast as the Sex Pistols’ career did. May or may not be historically accurate, but Pistol does it have the rights to the music, that’s all you need.
