The former Sex Pistols singer told the Sheffield Star that his current health issues stem from a lack of education on the subject of dental hygiene as a child. He explained (via Contactmusic): "I'm not a vegetarian. I'm smart enough to realise I've got two sets of teeth in my mouth and I want to use both. Actually I have very few real teeth left. That's something my parents didn't pass on to me. They passed many good things on, but dental health wasn't one of them."
