When Johnny Rotten was asked about the shirt he said,

“I’ve no idea where I got it from, it being green, which was an oddity… Not my colour. It might have been something I nicked off a stall.”

Here’s a screen cap of Cook wearing it behind the drums so you can see the color…

Rotten, elaborated as to why he didn’t like Pink Floyd at the time,

“Listen, you’d have to be daft as a brush to say you didn’t like Pink Floyd. They’ve done great stuff. They’ve done rubbish too. Dark Side of the Moon I love. But I go right back to when they were with Syd Barrett. But I grew up with all kinds of music.”

“What I didn’t like about them was the pretentiousness. There was an aura of ‘Oh we’re so great there’s no room for anybody else.’ But you know I’ve met members of the band and I get on alright with them because they’re not like that at all. There was kind of a misreading and a misrepresentation in the press and they’re not holier than thou. In fact they are just like thee and thou.”
