Steve Jones Autobiography
November 2016

Hardcover: 352 pages
Publisher: William Heinemann (17 Nov. 2016)

Steve Jones 1977The true untold story of the Sex Pistols from the man who formed the band and kick-started Punk.

Ask anyone who knows about music and they’ll tell you: without Steve Jones punk rock would not exist. This is not hyperbole. The prototypical street urchin turned Sex Pistols guitarist was the sole inspiration and creator of the punk movement which began shaking the culture in late 1970s London.

His autobiography presents never before told stories of the sexual abuse Jones suffered at the hands of his stepfather, stories of petty crime he perpetrated as a young boy, the sadness from never knowing his real father, the early days as a Pistol, and how the hell a band with one album meant so much to so many people.

Sex Pistols event for York. Archaeologist John Schofield from the University of York was part of the team that documented the artworks made by the band during their time living in Denmark Street in Soho, which drew comparisons between the significance of the graffiti and prehistoric cave paintings. Prof Schofield will discuss the Sex Pistols and their cultural contribution, as well as the reaction to this archaeological investigation. He will also reveal what John Lydon thought of it all, and ask whether something so recent can be of archaeological interest.

Tickets to the talk, on May 23, are free and available at york.ac.uk/news-and-events/events/public-lectures/summer-2016/no-future/
