Lonely Boy: Tales of a Sex Pistol With Steve Jones
Jan 10 , 2017 Doors: 7pm Show: 7:30PM
Considered one of the key inventors of punk rock and celebrated as a living legend, guitarist/songwriter and co-founder of the Sex Pistols Steve Jones has revisited his unruly, and often tragic, past in the forthcoming memoir, Lonely Boy: Tales of a Sex Pistol. Set for release on Jan. 10, 2017, Lonely Boy captures Jones recounting the nihilistic songs, amphetamine-fueled music, and influential anarchical fashion that turned a street urchin into a founding member of a genre-defining band. From his days of petty crime and havoc-wreaking in England, to his first impression of Sid Vicious and famously blowing off the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony with Johnny Rotten, Lonely Boy offers a portrait of a punk pioneer — a demigod to a generation of frustrated youth who identified with the band's political and social condemnations of life for the working class. Its release will coincide with the 40th anniversary of the band's platinum debut album, Never Mind the Bollocks, which set the world on fire in 1977. The GRAMMY Museum welcomes Steve Jones to the Clive Davis Theater for a conversation on his colorful career and forthcoming memoir, moderated by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares. The conversation will be followed by a book signing with Jones in the Museum's gift shop.
