Johnny Rotten, the famed “Sex Pistols” frontman and among the pioneers of the 1970s British punk movement, publicly stated that he will “miss” the Queen of England when she dies.

Rotten, whose real name is John Lydon, gained prominence with the "Sex Pistols" through the group's anti-establishment stances and for protesting the monarchy with the anthem, “God Save the Queen.”

Yet Rotten told music outlet The Quietus Tuesday that the meaning of "God Save the Queen" had no bearing when it came to the health of the queen as a human being.

"That’s about a political situation and the demand for obedience to a monarchy I don’t believe in," Lydon had said of the song. "But she’s a human being and I will sorely miss her as a human being on planet Earth.

"It’s not her fault she was born into a gilded cage."

The song was first released in 1977 and was famously banned from the BBC when its debut coincided with the queen’s Silver Jubilee.

Fortunately, Queen Elizabeth remains in good health and shows no signs of slowing, despite rumors of her dwindling health and whispers of an abdication.

Plans regarding what will take place in the days following the queen’s death were recently published in March. The plan will detail exactly how doctors will handle the queen’s diminishing health and the press access to the news, the Guardian outlined in an article published March 17.

“Her eyes will be closed and Charles will be king. His siblings will kiss his hands. The first official to deal with the news will be Sir Christopher Geidt, the Queen’s private secretary, a former diplomat who was given a second knighthood in 2014, in part for planning her succession,” the article read.

During the December holidays, the queen canceled engagements to recover from a cold. Many debated the severity of the illness, but the queen has since mended and has carried on with royal duties.
