Chelsea Transfer Target

Tuesday 15th February 1977, forty years ago today, was reportedly the day bass-player Glen Matlock left Sex Pistols. With Matlock being the band's only member with any musical ability, replacing him with the heroin-addicted beer-glass-lobbing thug Sid Vicious (who couldn't even play an instrument! Even Ringo Starr could play the tambourine!) was always going to end in disaster.
Reasons for Matlock's departure ranged from a clash of personality with Johnny Rotten, reportedly being caught listening to TheBeatles, and even his foot hygiene habits!
Whatever the reason, here are Sex Pistols with Matlock from just before the split...
