Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon has urged today's rock stars to take notes from his legendary punk band - because he is convinced they are "Britain's finest".

The rocker, also known as Johnny Rotten, insists his own group remain the best in the UK - despite having not produced any new material since 1978.

The Sex Pistols have just released their concert film 'There'll Always Be An England', and Lydon is urging wannabe stars to "pay attention" to their work.

He says: "This is edited highlights, but anyone who is potentially interested in seeing true British genuine quality of work should pay attention to this, we are Britain's finest - always have been, all right?

"There's only one man in England who really can save the Queen, and it would be Johnny Rotten."
