Triggers: A Life in Music (Hardback)Glen Matlock (author)
The iconic bassist for The Sex Pistols traces the legendary punk band's story through thirty of their most formative songs in this fascinating memoir dripping with anecdotes and famous collaborators.
A fascinating new book charting the life and career of Sex Pistols legend Glen Matlock through the lens of thirty of his most formative songs - from the ones that influenced him as a child to the ones he wrote and played on as a star.
Sharing insider tales of the Sex Pistols' earliest gigs and stormiest reunions, as well as their most idiosyncratic inter-band dynamics, Triggers offers a vivid insight into the ultimate icons of punk. Yet, having performed and recorded with so many musical luminaries over the decades, Glen also reflects on his time with the likes of Iggy Pop, David Bowie, the Faces, Blondie, Primal Scream and many more, bookending his account with two 'winters of discontent': 1976 and 2022.
This is the story of an outspoken, uncompromising man and remarkable, game-changing musician.
