Punk legend “Johnny Rotten” of the Sex Pistols thinks Sting is more accurately called “Stink” ? and called The Police “soggy old dead carcasses” in an interview with Virgin Radio.
Rotten, who has reverted back to his real name, John Lydon, dismissed Sting as “Stink,” saying of The Police’s recent comeback: “That really is a reformation, isn’t it? But honestly, that’s like soggy old dead carcasses. “You know listening to Stink try to squeak through ‘Roxanne’ one more time, that’s not fun. It’s like letting air out of a balloon.”? Source
