"From being a young oik in Hammersmith to being a sex addicted, burnt out addict in LA, Steve Jones has led a bloody interesting life. He was the man who kick started the Sex Pistols, one of the most influential bands in British music and ended up as one of the least likely guitar heroes in rock 'n' roll."
"A raw, vanity-free dive into a life marred by an abused childhood, petty crime and addictions to drink, drugs and sex, but rescued by Jones's relentless aspiration for a better life."
--London Times Magazine, 11/5/16
"A hilarious and at times harrowing read."
"Jones's autobiography is anything but quaint...His book's title speaks volumes, although these stories are told without sadness...Through the fame years, Lonely Boy is often eye-wateringly funny...He's 'a semi-retired sexual deviant who doesn't really act out so much any more, ' which is sensible. His book's a delight."
"A brutally frank ¬autobiography."
"The Sex Pistols guitarist details his life-an impoverished Sixties childhood, sexual abuse and dalliances with crime-in a way that is both moving and candid."--The Telegraph, "Top 50 Books of the Year 2016"
"A bloody good story...Jones' own voice speaks loud and clear throughout Lonely Boy, a brutally honest and level-headed memoir."
"[A] funny, filthy-mouthed memoir."
"A book that's sometimes raucously funny."--Uncut
"The book shows off Jones' wry humor and blunt assessments of himself as he parses his life...As a whole, the book provides a fresh look at the punk movement 40 years removed from the release of Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols."
Ask anyone who knows about music and they'll tell you: without Steve Jones, punk rock would not exist. This is not hyperbole. The prototypical street-urchin-turned-Sex-Pistols-guitarist was the inspiration for and creator of the punk movement, which started shaking the culture in late 1970s London and is just as strong today. Lonely Boy presents never-before-told stories of an abused boy who was neglected by his mother and stepfather and abandoned by his biological father. It chronicles the petty crime and anger of his youth, which fueled the musical onslaught to come, the meteoric rise of the Pistols, the role of impresario Malcolm McLaren, and how a band with one album defined a generation and changed history. Lonely Boy educates people on where it all started, straight from the guy who inspired the whole scene.
