The Sex Pistols turned down the chance to reunite at the Olympic Games opening ceremony in London in 2012 because the rockers were stunned by organisers' attempt to invite long-dead The Who drummer Keith Moon to perform. The punk icons were invited to make a comeback at the star-studded launch of the sporting showpiece, but declined the offer.
Former bassist Glen Matlock has now revealed their decision was made after they heard about Olympic bosses' major blunder in inviting The Who to perform with their late drummer.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "I heard that they wanted The Who to do it, they wanted Keith Moon to perform. But he's only been dead 20 years. They had asked us to perform but the story about Keith Moon and The Who didn't help their pitch to us. That was one of the reasons we said 'no'."
Moon died from an overdose of prescription drugs in 1978, at the age of 32.
Sex Pistols star Glen Matlock has dashed fans' hopes of another reunion by insisting he hasn't had any contact with frontman John Lydon in five years. Fans of the iconic punk group had hoped the stars would regroup for another comeback tour, but bassist Matlock is adamant there is nothing planned and he is no longer in touch with his former bandmate.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "I haven't seen John for five years and I'm quite happy about that. I've had no cause to speak to him. We don't have anything planned. 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... I wouldn't write new Sex Pistols material, we're fine with the old stuff."
Matlock goes on to reveal he is still in touch with drummer Paul Cook and guitarist Steve Jones, but their meetings are rare.
He adds, "I see Paul every now and again and I see Steve once in a while, he lives in Los Angeles and I'll look him up. He can be a bit of a miserable sod so I don't always do that."
The Sex Pistols split in 1978 but reunited in 1996 and have toured sporadically since. They last played together onstage in 2008.
