John Lydon, 64, admitted that he is “fed up” with being told his spouse Norah Forster should be “medicated”, as he does not want her to end up a “comatose victim”. The Sex Pistols rocker said he would much rather her be “having fun, jumping, and being in the sun” than to be subdued, just to make life “easier” for himself.

Where my concern lies

John said: “I really got fed up with the advice they [doctors] were giving.

“A lot of them were suggesting narcotics of some kind to subdue her, but why would I want to do that?

“When someone’s coming towards their last few years, to then deny them the freedom and fun of running, jumping, being in the sun, chatting — why would I take that all away and have her be a comatose victim? 

“It would be easier for myself but not for her, and that’s where my first concern lies,” he added to The Daily Mail.

John has been married to Norah, 78, for 41 years and has become her full-time carer in recent years as she battles Alzheimer’s disease.

John explained: “She doesn’t remember faces or situations, but her personality is still there and that’s the person I loved over 40 years ago. 

“That’s not going to change. Of course, there are issues, but there are issues with everything. I’m a long-term hauler and so is my Babbie.
