Mensagem Steve Jones - Sex Pistols
Só pra reunir umas infos :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

A principal Les Paul usada por Jones foi trazida de NY por Malcolm McLaren; era de Syl Sylvain dos NY Dolls, sob a promessa que seria vendida para que pudessem comprar uma passagem de avião pra Syl ir para Londres. Até hoje ele está esperando a passagem.

O Twin reverb que Steve Jones usava foi roubado do backstage de um show de Bob Marley

Ele vendeu várias LP Custom brancas como se fossem a que ficou famosa. Uma delas saiu na capa da revista "Collectors choice" da qual ele falou "I sold it to some guy in Texas. I said, 'Yeah man, it's the original. I'll sell it to you real cheap.'" Outra 'falsa' está com o guitarrista John McGeoch do P.I.L. "I haven't got the heart to tell him."

E Billy Duffy disse:
"When The Cult sort of split up in 1995 I had all this equipment and I was storing it with no use for it so I had a bit of a ‘car boot sale. I sold two amps and four cabinets to Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols. Those were the amps and cabinets that Steve used on the Pistols 1996 re-union tour and live album (‘Vive Les Sex Pistols: Filthy Lucre Tour 1996’) so that was basically my backline that Jonesy was using.
After the Pistols stopped working I bought the amps back off him, but Joney being Jonesy he made me buy them back at a profit to him!"

flame, flame baby! :lol: :lol: :lol:

" Jones parted company with the guitar - he says he can't remember exactly how - during a drug-addled period after the Pistols split up. Asked how he got it back, Jones stares resolutely at his footwear.

"Oh, I can't tell you….kind of a long story. I have to be very quiet about this guitar. 'Cause I still like selling other ones as originals."

Q.Did you experiment with any other guitars?

SJones: No, it's always been Les Pauls. That guy Wally (Nightingale), I knicked him a Les Paul. I was always attracted to Les Pauls.


Q. You've recently switched to Fernandes. Why was this?

SJones: Yeah. That's a guitar they've got called a Burny. It still looks like a Les Paul, they've made it look pretty much the same. The thing is, it's about a hundred times better! The way it plays and the sound. They're brilliant. Really good. And they fucking give me them! Gibson are cunts, they never give me anything.

Ou melhor,

"According to Nick Kent's book "Apathy for the Devil" (Nick was a member of the early sex pistols) Steve Jones stole all the equipment the Sex Pistols used in their early days, much of it from instrument shops, he was a master of the guitar hidden under an overcoat. The microphones he stole from the stage after the last Ziggy Stardust show, clipping the cables while a roadie was passed out on the drum riser. No specific mention of where the amps were stolen from. "

A Les Paul Custom que o Duffy empunha na capa do Sonic Temple foi emprestada do Jones:
