Glen Matlock is a nice guy. Glen Matlock is a great musician. Glen Matlock was kicked out of the most important rock n roll band in the world, ever. And try to convince us as he does, for two hundred pages, he still hasn't got over it.
This is as unbalanced as most biographies, which is fair enough, but at the end you're left realising exactly why he was booted out in the first place. He deserves his place in history and he deserves his say but what is glaringly, even more, obvious after reading this is that had any other singer been roped in to front the sex pistols then, well, I wouldn't be writing this and Glen Matlock would probably still be a shop assistant. John Lydon is, was and always will be the beating heart and soul of the band, the reason why so many people love, hate, idolise and despise them still. Glen cannot accept that.
There are some interesting insights into the band in here but its all clouded by the underlying bitterness and, frankly, poor writing.
