But, next Tuesday, the former Sex Pistol star
who launched his career screaming "I am an Antichrist" will be ensconced in the classical music venue in Paradise Place - ready to wax lyrical about his extraordinary life.
Astronomers have identified stars with masses that probably exceed 100 Suns, such as Eta Carinae (last month's issue, page 42), the Pistol Star
near the Milky Way's center (April 2003, page 50), and LBV 1806-20 (April 2004, page 20).
And when Jordan said that liposuction on her legs was the worst thing she ever did, the Sex Pistol star

THE Pistol Star
, which is closer to the centre of the Milky Way than the Earth, and isn't visible to the naked eye due to galactic dust.
Astronomers have dubbed it "Pistol Star," for the gun shape of its nebula, or surrounding gaseous cloud.
Yet for all its dazzle, you won't see the Pistol Star with your naked eye, or even through the most powerful telescopes on Earth.
Just as celebrity photographers use a telephoto lens to snap Hollywood superstars, astronomers turned a new supercamera on the very venter of the Milky Way to catch the elusive Pistol Star. The camera, recently installed on the Hubble Space Telescope, is called the Near-Infrared Camera and Multi-Object Spectrometer.
The giant Pistol Star is TEN MILLION times more powerful than the sun.
The Pistol Star, named after the shape of the gas cloud surrounding it, is 25,000 light years away, close to the centre of our galaxy.
His team estimate that the Pistol Star was formed between one million and three million years ago.
These include the Arches and Quintuplet massive-star clusters, the Pistol Star, and the Pistol Nebula.
The Pistol Star is a strong candidate for the title of the most massive star known, apparently weighing in at as much as 200 to 250 Suns.
