Release Date: September 1995
Music Genre: Punk Rock
Release Country: United Kingdom
Record Type: 26 Tracks CD
The most famous (and infamous) band of the late 70s punk scene. Their rebellious image combined with a commercial sound (partly thanks to producer Chris Thomas) created some of the most memorable moments of the 70s - both musical and otherwise. Line-up: Johnny Rotten (John Lydon, b. January 31, 1956 - vocals), Steve Jones (b. September 3, 1955 - guitar), Sid Vicious (John Ritchie aka John Beverley, b. May 10, 1957 - bass, kind of; replaced original bassist Glen Matlock) and Paul Cook (b. July 20, 1956 - drums). They effectively split up after their 1978 US tour, although Jones and Cook continued to record under the name for another year or so.
The original line-up reformed in 1996 for a series of concert tours, and has played live shows off and on since then, and released live recordings.
