Steve Jones : Fire and Gasoline : 1989

Steve Jones was born in Shepherds Bush , London .
In 1975, Jones went on to co-found the Sex Pistols with Paul Cook , Glen Matlock , and later , Johnny Rotten . Although they only released one album , the Sex Pistols went on to become one of the most influential bands of the 20th century .

Jones is a self-taught guitar player , primarily playing Gibson Les Paul electric guitars in his early years . His usual guitar was a cream colored Gibson Les Paul custom which (according to Filth and the Fury) he had stolen from Mick Ronson at a David Bowie concert when he and his fellow Sex Pistols members posed as road crew members , stealing amps and other equipment .

Jones became well known among fans for his "hanky on the head" , and his permanent perm . He also shared Johnny Rotten's extreme dislike of Sid Vicious' girlfriend , Nancy Spungen . In an interview for The Filth and the Fury , refers to her as "that fucking horrible bird" .

After the Sex Pistols broke up in 1978, Jones and drummer Paul Cook co-founded The Professionals. They released one album, but disbanded after a serious car crash while on tour in the U.S. in 1981. The Professionals' debut album was I Didn't See It Coming. Jones was also a member of Chequered Past (led by Michael Des Barres) from 1982 to 1985. They released a self-titled album in 1984.

Fire and Gasoline

Originally released in America in 1989 , it features 12 tracks of pure power. "Freedom Fighter" is a hot spot, as is "We're not Saints" , co-written with Nikki Sixx . Nikki isn't the only artist who helped out as Axl Rose and Ian Atsbury of the Cult sing on the new version of "I Did U No Wrong". The album ends on a good note, with his cover of "Suffragette City" , which I even dig more than Bowie's original .

1. Freedom Fighter
2. We're Not Saints

  1. Δεν ξέρω γιατί αλλά αυτό το post ήταν παραγματικά μεγάλη έκπληξη για μένα. "Κοίτα, λέω τι έβγαλε ο αθεόφοβος ρε συ..." Νομίζω ότι αυτό το δίσκο πρέπει να τον έχουν αγοράσει το πολύ 1000 άτομα σ' όλο τον κόσμο, και όλοι πρέπει να τον έχουν ξεχασμένο. Εγώ προσωπικά θυμήθηκα ότι τον έχω μόλις είδα το post σου.

    "I Did You No Wrong" μαζί με Axel Rose & Ian Astbury.
