Glen Matlock

Glen Matlock (born August 27, 1956) was the original bass player of punk rock band the Sex Pistols. He left that band early in 1977, the legend being that he was 'thrown out' because he "liked The Beatles" (although in a television interview in 2002, Pistols guitarist Steve Jones stated that the real reason was that Matlock was "always washing his feet"). Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious, and went on to form The Rich Kids[?], a new wave/power pop band, with Midge Ure[?], Steve New and Rusty Egan[?].

Matlock rejoined the surviving Sex Pistols members for reunion gigs in 1996 and 2002.

Matlock has published an autobiography, I Was A Teenage Sex Pistol. His website is at [1] (http://www.glenmatlock.com)
