His book I was a teenage Sex Pistols (rocket88books. com), is a great insight in the early steps of the band, its members and is presenting the story of punk from a different lens. The london based store SEX (where Glen worked as a clerk) owned by Vivienne Westwood and Malcom McClaren, Johnny Rotten, The Clash, Sid Vicious are few of the people you are going to meet during this trip that started in the late seventies and ended in 2006, when the band (it seems) broke up definitively

After the Sex Pistols split in 1978 Glen and his replacement Sid Vicious played together as part of The Vicious White Kids; a one-off live band – also featuring Steve New and Rat Scabbies (Damned) – Glen played bass while Sid sang lead vocals. An official CD of the concert was later released in 1993. He published the autobiography ‘I Was A Teenage Sex Pistol’ in 1990 and began rebuilding his musical career with his own band The Mavericks (not to be confused with the American band of the same name). 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.

Glen Matlock (born 27 August 1956) is an English musician best known for being the bass guitarist in the original line-up of the punk rock band the Sex Pistols. He left the band in 1977 over creative differences with the other band members.

Enjoyable memoir from the REAL bassist of the Sexpistols.No offence to SidViceous.He would have made a good frontman.with this book you get a point of view from somebody you never hear about,but who was extremely important to the story,both musically and personally.Make sure you get the later addition with the bonus chapter.

Great book from a man who was in the epicenter of what was the Sex Pistols. Informative yet entertaining, does not hold back. Eye-opening on who the other band members were and the relationship they had. Cleared the air on little Maclaren really had to with anything. Buy it!

Love the cockney rhyming slang. Easy to read and a lot of great anecdotes about the early formation and strategy behind the sex pistols.

Do not try to use this as a good play for detailed information. It only has about two dates in it.

I had for years been meaning to grab this book and give it a read. After all, the original bassist for the Sex Pistols must have some good "behind the scenes" insight to the Pistols, including the 1996 reunion (which I am proud to say I attended when they came to NYC). I was not disappointed. For all of the crap that has been thrown at Glen Matlock over the years (mostly by Johnny Rotten) it's good to see that he really doesn't come across with an axe to grind against Johnny, or anybody else including Sid Vicious. What you do get is a revealing insight of not only the band but also of himself and where he fits into the whole legend of the band. Glen was in the band from the very beginning, so of course a good amount of the book is devoted to what was happening to him and the band up until the day he left. Also very interesting is that Glen reveals that he offered to teach Sid how to play the Pistols music on bass, but Sid never showed up (which the band would find out later, especially the disaster that the American 1978 tour turned out to be). One comment I heard that Glen made was that he quit the Pistols because they were becoming too much like The Monkees (meaning McLaren was pulling all the strings and the band were his puppets)...which he does mention in this book. He also talks about the "Vicious White Kids" project which included *drum roll please* Sid Vicious on vocals.

Simply put, if you're a fan you will enjoy this book, and maybe even have a little more respect for the guy who wrote most of the music for the band. Interesting note about that by the way, on the DVD about how the "Bollocks" album was made, Steve Jones (guitarist) said that if the band had not sacked Glenn, and hadn't done the Bill Grundy Show (which to this day still lives in infamy...if you don't know why then look it up on YouTube) then the band probably had at least another 2, perhaps even 3 records in them. What else can I say besides I really enjoyed reading this one, and I think you will too.

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.
