60th Anniversary P Bass Notes & Trivia: 1977

Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols, probably the most important punk album ever and an extremely important and influential album in rock history in general, is released in fall of this year.

Most of the Precision Bass work on it is played by the Pistols’ guitarist despite the fact that 10 of its 12 songs are co-authored by the Pistols’ original bassist, who did in fact play on one of the album’s biggest tracks, “Anarchy in the U.K.” (previously released as the Pistols’ first single).

Who is the Pistols guitarist, and who is the original Pistols bassist?

Answer: Steve Jones was the guitarist, and Glen Matlock took the bass.
