I Was A Teenage Sex Pistol (Hardback)

Glen Matlock

Glen Matlock was a founding member of the Sex Pistols and co-wrote most of their iconic songs. His story of the Pistols’ rise to global infamy is an honest, insightful account of a group of intelligent malcontents, determined to change the music business and to attack hypocrisy and stale conventions in society at large. Glen brilliantly captures the flavour of seventies Britain and reveals the complexities and personality clashes that made the Pistols so explosive at that time.

Also includes true tales of the Pistols reunion tours of 1996 and 2002.

Never mind the other bollocks-filled books about the Sex Pistols, here’s the truth.

About the author

In a career that has spanned over thirty years, Glen Matlock has made indelible contributions to music as the original bass player with The Sex Pistols, formed the underrated Rich Kids, and worked with artists ranging from Iggy Pop and Robert Gordon to the reformed Faces.

Press reviews

As the first band-member’s view of the group that rescued rock from the foolishness of the mid-’70s, this is an engaging memoir
