About

The one and only! Jah Wobble began his musical career at 18 as a founder member of Public Image Limited. His heavy, hypnotic bass lines defined the post punk era and have influenced many musicians over the last 30 odd years.John Wardle originally met John Lydon, John Grey and Sid Vicious at Kingsway College, London, in 1973. It was Vicious who originally nicknamed John "Jah Wobble" after a drunken binge, and would also loan him his first bass guitar. After discovering his fascination with the bass guitar, Lydon asked Wardle to join Public Image Limited (aka PiL) during the spring of 1978. Wardle's distinctive 'low end' bass immediately put PiL on the map and became the backbone of the band. " The band's debut album Public Image Limited included the band's eponymous first Top 10 hit single.
