Summary
As the world celebrates the 40th anniversary of punk-- the influence and cultural significance of which is felt in music, fashion, and the visual arts to this day-- Steve tells his story for the very first time. This is a memoir by the guitarist of the punk pioneers the Sex Pistols.
The Sex Pistols transformed twentieth-century culture and kick-started a social revolution. On the 40th anniversary of punk, Jones takes readers on his journey from the Kings Road of the early '70s through the years of the Sex Pistols and punk rock. He delves into the details of his self-imposed exile in New York and Los Angeles, where he battled alcohol, heroin, and sex addiction but eventually emerged to gain fresh acclaim as an actor and radio host.
