Steve Jones Slams Original Sex Pistols Bandmate as a Mommy's Boy

(Gibson) Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones has been talking about the '70s glory days with U.S. magazine Hustler. According to NME.com, Steve Jones called original Pistol Glen Matlock a "middle-class mommy's boy."

He also said he was "tired" of Matlock talking about writing "God Save the Queen," "Anarchy in the U.K." and "Pretty Vacant." He said, "I'm tired of Glen Matlock saying he was the songwriter for the Sex Pistols. I co-wrote as many songs… but I don't go shouting about it… At the time he hated the words, which John [Lydon] wrote. Glen's mom didn't like it… He was a bit of a middle-class mommy's boy, really…"

Recently, Matlock has been serving as the bass player in the Faces, standing in for the late Ronnie Lane. more on this story
