Johnny Rotten - "One Sex Pistol to Another"
Here's one for the history books. John Lydon aka Johnny Rotten on Jonesy's Jukebox. He's in happy spirits and the two have a good laugh and share great memories.

As Jonesy explains in the introduction, this appearance took place days before the Sex Pistols were to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Rotten infamously faxed a hand-written letter to Rolling Stone Magazine saying the Sex Pistols were not coming. Listen and enjoy this special get-together between Steve and John.

Chrissie Hynde - "So when we, um, had sex...""
Chrissie Hynde and Steve Jones have a history, and you'll hear about it in sordid detail right from the start. Nothing is held back in this conversation between the two music legends who became acquainted as teens when they were both hanging out at the infamous Kings Road clothing boutique, run by impresario Malcolm McLaren. 

You see much of that history captured in "Pistol," the 6-part TV series directed by Danny Boyle. Chrissie is portrayed in the series by Sydney Chandler.

Steve and Chrissie are joined later in the episode by actress Roseanne Arquette, who plays matchmaker of sorts and convinces Jonesy to get onstage at the Pretenders concert later that night.

This episode is loaded with juicy stories and includes some live in-studio performances by Chrissie and Steve. Enjoy!

Tony Wilson interviews Jonesy - "So It Goes"

Jonesy is back with another special episode in advance of the May 31 release of the limited series Pistol. Jonesy talks about the time Tony Wilson interviewed him on Jonesy’s Jukebox.

Wilson was made famous as the subject of the film 24 Hour Party People. Before that, he became etched in British music history as the TV presenter who gave the Sex Pistols their first exposure on television in Manchester. Wilson went on to co-found Factory Records with artists such as Joy Division, New Order, and Happy Mondays and was the founder and manager of the legendary Manchester nightclub the Hacienda. You’ll hear Tony Wilson describe witnessing the Sex Pistols' now-mythical first Lesser Free Trade Hall show, as later depicted in the film Control. As a journalist, Wilson came to interview Jonesy on his own show May 4, 2005. This episode took place two days before the last-minute appearance by Malcolm McLaren from last week's podcast.

Enjoy the entire discussion, share it with your mates and be sure to subscribe to Jonesy’s Jukebox to get the latest episode on Mondays. Fanx for listenin!

Malcolm McLaren - "Where's the Money?"

Here's the first episode of the new Jonesy’s Jukebox podcast. To start off and to get geared up for the premiere of the tv show "Pistol,” based on Steve Jones’ autobiography “Lonely Boy,” Jonesy is presenting some of the characters important in Sex Pistols history. One of the most consequential is founding manager Malcolm McLaren, strikingly portrayed in the series by actor Thomas Brodie-Sangster. In this podcast, you’ll hear the real McLaren.

Steve Jones hadn’t seen Malcolm McLaren since he ran off with the filthy lucre in the days of the Great Rock n Roll Swindle. In this episode, Jonesy revisits the old-school Indie 103.1 radio encounter in 2005 when the Embezzler and the Thief saw each other for the first time in over 25 years. But Jonesy will explain it, so just listen! There have been some bits and bobs out there on the web but for the first time since it aired live, here is the entire interview with the notorious raconteur Malcolm McLaren.

*Bonus- Jonesy's whistles for a winner. Can you name the song?
