Johnny Rotten exposed the late Jimmy Saville

(ANTIMEDIA) United Kingdom — John Lydon, also known by his former stage name, Johnny Rotten, has explained what happened when he tried to blow the whistle on Jimmy Savile — long before hundreds of allegations of sexual abuse against the DJ came to light. The former Sex Pistols frontman, currently on a tour through the U.K. with Public Image Ltd, said many young girls told him about the actions of Savile because they were too afraid to report it themselves.

Hundreds of allegations of sexual abuse against TV presenter and DJ Savile came to light after his death in 2011. The harrowing mass of evidence gathered against him included abuse at hospitals and care homes throughout the U.K. The warped crimes of the paedophile, which took place from 1959 to 2006, also included the abuse of 72 victims in connection with his work at the BBC. His youngest rape victim was reportedly ten years old.

In 1978, when Savile was at the height of his fame, Lydon, the self-proclaimed king of punk, gave an interview to BBC radio. During that interview, he called Savile a hypocrite and accused him of being into “all sorts of seediness….that we’re not allowed to talk about.” Although theBBC decided not to broadcast his comments, an excerpt of the interview with Vivienne Goldman was made available as part of the reissue of the first Public Image Ltd album in 2013.
