When we chatted with Public Image Ltd. frontman John Lydon -- formerly the Sex Pistols' Johnny Rotten -- a few weeks ago, he couldn't have been friendlier or more quotable. But we realize we happened to get him on a good day -- the Miami New Times only managed a couple of questions with Lydon before he hung up.

Tampa got a taste of Lydon's mercurial nature on Saturday when, at the last moment, Public Image Ltd.'s concert was moved from the spacious Cuban Club to the more intimate Orpheum. (Could've been worse, though -- PiL's Orlando show was canceled outright.)

Andrew Carlton was there to snap photos; check out more of Lydon and company after the jump.
