Singer claims bands are only interested in making money

John Lydon has turned his acid tongue on Coldplay and Radiohead by describing them as "soulless" and claiming they don't care about their fans.

The singer, who is currently on tour with his band Public Image Ltd, said: "Coldplay and Radiohead bug the hell out of me because it's so soulless.

"They don't care about you. They care about lining their coffers."
