John Lydon turned down Gorillaz

Many websites around the net are reporting this one, claiming a Daily Star interview as the source ( here's one such article on Contactmusic):- apparently John Lydon (formerly Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols, who also enjoyed a successful career as the core member of Public Image Limited) turned down a request from Gorillaz to collaborate with them. He is quoted as saying:- "They gave me a bell (call) but the answer was no. I really don't want to be dabbling in other people's gene pools. I've worked with many so-called famous people over the years but it's never been for any deliberate financial motivation. If I did it wouldn't be a business phone call followed by a management agreement and then for an album manufactured and marketed as to what the current popular trends were."
