About Glen Matlock

With the possible exception of Pete Best, no musician is more famous for getting kicked out of a band than Glen Matlock, who was sacked from the Sex Pistols in February 1977. History has shown this was a mistake -- he wrote the tunes to most of their best songs, and was a highly capable instrumentalist. Matlock had the chance to set the record straight when the Sex Pistols staged an international reunion tour in 1996, but by that time, he was nearly two decades into a journeyman's career that saw him lead the groups the Rich Kids, the Philistines, and Dead Men Walking and serve as backing musician for Iggy Pop, Ian Hunter, and Frank Black. In the 2020s, Matlock was busier than ever, hitting the road as a member of Blondie and releasing his sixth solo LP, 2023's politically charged Consequences Coming.
