The Sex Pistols are one of the greatest legends in the history of rock music. They erupted on to the music scene in 1976, and with their raw, anarchic sound, aura of sex and violence, outrageous behavior, and concerts that often degenerated into near-riots, the band changed the rules of rock music forever. In this photographic history of The Sex Pistols, which includes many previously unpublished images, Johnny Rotten, Paul Cook, Steve Jones, and Glen Matlock are recorded from the band’s earliest days onward. Together with manager Malcolm McLaren and latecomer Sid Vicious, the band’s story is traced to the last gigs of their ill-fated 1978 U.S. tour. Given their enormous influence on music and culture, and their undiminished cult status, The Sex Pistols is a must-have.
