It's another journey into The Big Wakeup Call Vault, where we travel back through the mists of time to bring you some of our favorite chats. On this episode, we're featuring interviews with The Sex Pistols!
From 4/29/15, John Lydon called our show to promote his new book "Anger Is An Energy: My Life Uncensored." We talked about why fashion has always been important to him, how his songwriting process has stayed consistent over the years, and why he called Public Image “a hole I chuck money into.”
From 1/17/17, Steve Jones discussed his memoir “Lonely Boy: Tales From a Sex Pistol.” We talked about how he wrote the book through a series of Skype chats, growing up poor in London without a fridge or a bathtub, and things that are not rock and roll — like “meet and greets,” electronic drums, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
From 10/3/17, Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook called in to talk about a new album from his post-Pistols project The Professionals, "What In The World," featuring an all-star lineup of guests including Pistol and Professional Steve Jones, along with Mick Jones, Phil Collen, Billy Duffy and more. Joining Paul was new Professionals lead singer Tom Spencer.
From 9/14/18, John Lydon returned to the show for chat about a new documentary, "The Public Image is Rotten," as well as his upcoming concert in Chicago. John also shared his thoughts on music streaming, self-funding a band, and making sweater vests cool.
