Item description for I Was a Teenage Sex Pistol by Glen Matlock...

The most candid account of the Sex Pistols you will ever read, this new updated edition marks the 30th anniversary of the band's first recordings. Glen Matlock, original bassist for the Sex Pistols, was also one of the band's founding members. Those were the days before punk, when the group (known as The Strand) was more influenced by glam rock than by the New York Dolls. Then things changed---with Malcolm McLaren as their new manager and Johnny Rotten as their new lead singer, the Sex Pistols became ultimate punk band. Matlock's account of the Pistols' rise to global infamy is a frank and insightful account of a group of intelligent malcontents, determined to change the music industry and attack the stale conventions of society. His story vividly captures the flavor of 1970s Britain, a society seething with creativity and social discontent. For this updated edition, he's added new material on the reunion tours of 1996 and 2002---and speculates on what may be next step for the group.

Reviews - What do customers think about I Was a Teenage Sex Pistol?

Average book  Feb 15, 2008
Do not try to use this as a good play for detailed information. It only has about two dates in it.
Most honest telling of the Pistol's story  Sep 27, 2007
This book is by far the most honest and candid telling of the Sex Pistol's story. Other books (England's Dreaming) and films (The Filth and The Fury) tell it in a dramatic fashion set against the socio-political backdrop of 1970 Britain, but this one is "just the facts" told by a guy who was there for all of it (well, the parts that mattered anyway).

Recommended for those who want to know the story without any of McLaren's "boy band" revisionism.
Good Toilet Reading. (so it's suitable for the Pistols)  Jun 1, 1998
I tried reading this book cover to cover and ended up putting it down. It's a good book to flip through while sitting around or taking a dump. Sid would've wanted it that way.
