The Sex Pistols Reader
The Sex Pistols Reader (Rock Reader Books) –available for preview and immediate purchase here – and was compiled and edited by music writer John D. Luerssen. A must read for all punk fans, this book documents how the Pistols – Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Paul Cook, Glen Matlock and his replacement Sid Vicious – changed rock and roll.
Inspired by The Ramones and propelled by manager Malcolm McLaren, The Sex Pistols ignited the punk-rock revolution in Britain, and the influential reverberations were felt in all corners of the music world. Expressing the cynical, restive mood of the U.K.'s youth, the Pistols restored a sense of danger to rock music.
With four exceptional singles and one classic album in just 24 explosive months, the group's explosive rise and subsequent implosion is one of music's most infamous tales. The Sex Pistols Reader heads back in time and traces the band's unforgettable dalliance with the media during the years 1976-1978.
Following a two month initial agreement with Lulu.com, Rock Reader Books will make the title available to traditional internet and retail outlets.
