STEVE JONES RECALLS 'ALL THIS WAS ONCE TREES, FIELDS'

Steve Jones of 1970s boyband Sex Pistols has been getting all worked up over the way that bands called "punk" these days are little more than a bunch of lads being manipulated by marketing guys and record labels. He fumed:

“Knuckleheads like Simple Plan and Good Charlotte are told what to do, and they do it, you know?

“It's a shame that they're disguising it under the word 'punk.' It's a bunch of fucking shit, you know?"


Yeah, there's no way the Sex Pistols would have just done what someone else told them to do, was there Steve? In fact, Malcolm was very insistent that you shouldn't.

Did he finish off by muttering about how a spell of national service would do them a world of good?
