The Roebuck and the Sex Pistols

This is where the Sex Pistols met Johnny Rotten.

Location: 354 King's Road, Chelsea, SW3 5UZ

Description: This 1890's boozer is where John Lydon met the rest of the Sex Pistols in August 1975. It was a few days after meeting Malcolm McLaren in his nearby boutique on the King's Road, Sex.

McLaren's assistant, Bernie Rhodes (later manager of The Clash), decided that Rotten's chutzpah was just the sort of attitude that he and McLaren were looking for in a singer to front a new band.

An intrigued Rotten turned up and, in front of Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock, sang along to Alice Cooper's (I'm) Eighteen so voraciously he immediately got the gig.

Today it's a private member's club.
