Former Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon , aka Johnny Rotten , will be honored as this year's BMI Icon at the performing-rights organization BMI's London Awards event on October 15 at London’s Dorchester Hotel. 

The honor is bestowed on artists who have had "a unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers." A statement from BMI announcing the honor describes Lydon as “a true icon whose influence on music, fashion and art has been felt around the world.” Previous BMI Icons have included Queen , John Fogerty , Carlos Santana and Paul Simon .

The BMI London Awards acknowledge British and European songwriters and publishers whose music was played or performed most frequently on U.S. television and radio.
