The blossoming punk scene fascinated McLaren, who adored pushing cultural bounds and was fresh from a somewhat catastrophic run as the in-your-face manager of the New York Dolls, a pioneering glam rock band. Following the Dolls split up in the early ’70s, McLaren returned to London, intent on making a fresh band to manage. He discovered that in the form of Jones, Cook, bassist Glen Matlock and singer John Lydon, who came together in 1975 to form the Sex Pistols. Over the next 36 months, the Sex Pistols cam to epitomize English punk. Early in his life, Steve Jones was involved in petty crimes and, unfortunately, he reverted back to his criminal ways during his time as an adult in the music business. The story goes that Jones stole from a variety of rock stars and icons as the Pistols made their method to the top. It has also been said that Jones swiped mics from David Bowie, a guitars from Rod Stewart and even a fur coat from The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood.
Following the release of the Pistols’ record, the band, which had replaced Matlock with Lydon’s old friend Sid Vicious, headed to America for a number of concert dates. But the tour immediately failed, as did the group, when Lydon suddenly walked off the stage in the middle of a show at Winterland in San Francisco in 1978. Basically, the Pistols were through, but Cook and Jones kept things going a bit more with a number of further singles which were used in McLaren’s picture account of the band, The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle (1980). Following the demise of the Sex Pistols, Steve Jones went on to work as a studio musician, work in various other groups and host a radio program in Los Angeles called Jonesy’s Jukebox.
