I totally got what the Sex Pistols were doing. The Sex Pistols were as close to the Monkees as anything else. They auditioned to be in that band, the way Monkees did. And Johnny got that. He says, “Hey, we’re put together. We’re not just a band that got together in an alley somewhere. Malcolm [McLaren] put us together as the new Monkees, only we’re the punk Monkees.” I got that. Then when I heard their album, I said, “Great album.” And the Monkees did good albums too.
