God Save The Queen! Anarchy In The UK ! Pretty Vacant!
Glen Matlock left the Sex Pistols 40 years ago but not before co-writing these three eternal rock and roll classics (and lets not forget Glen lifted the distinctive Pretty Vacant riff from Abba's S.O.S!)
An original member of the Sex Pistols he was replaced on bass, by Sid Vicious in early 1977. Within a year the Sex Pistols had limped to an end. After his departure from the Sex Pistols, Glen formed the Rich Kids with Midge Ure, who went onto join Ultravox. He worked on Iggy Pop's Soldier album writing/co penning 4 songs, collaborated with Blondie's Clem Burke in The International Swingers, recorded an album for the Creation label , had his own group The Philisteins, and played bass for one of his favourite groups, The Faces on reunion shows between 2009 and 2011.
Glen, has of course, rejoined the Sex Pistols for all subsequent reunion shows.
"We're not the best of friends but we are not the best of enemies" JOHN LYDON
"I'm tired of Glen saying he was the song writer for the Sex Pistols. I co-wrote as many songs .... but I don't go shouting about it." STEVE JONES
"It was just like being in the Monkees" GLEN MATLOCK
Glen performs two solo shows in New Zealand at the end of November just over 40 years since the Sex Pistols' Never Mind The Bollocks was released. He will be performing songs he wrote for the Sex Pistols.
Glen says ... "I'll be playing songs from all aspects of my chequered career accoustically and telling some stories. There will be some stories behind the songs, who I recorded them, some funny tales, some astute, and some sad. But don't worry, it will be fun, I'm not a miserable old po-faced git"
He still likes The Beatles.
