Glen Matlock says The Sex Pistols may never reunite again

Posted by ChrisDude on Monday, July 28, 2014 at 6:41 PM (PST)

In a recent interview, former Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock said that he has not seen his former bandmate John Lydon in five years, and that there may never be another reunion of the iconic British punk band. He explains:

“I haven’t seen John for five years and I’m quite happy about that. I’ve had no cause to speak to him. There is nothing I know of in the offing and I’m really not that fussed about it. I have no idea if we will reform but who knows the secret of black magic box. I wouldn’t write new Sex Pistols material, we’re fine with the old stuff.”

The Sex Pistols broke up in 1978, a year after their iconic album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols, and had reunited periodically since then.
