  • Lonely Boy is often eye-wateringly funny … Jones is good at puncturing myth … His book’s a delight.

    Observer, 'Music Book of the Day'
  • 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.

    Telegraph, 'Top 50 Books of the Year'
  • The Pistols’ story, retold refreshingly and with added rumpage … What’s special about this book is its story arc, which will make the most hardened punk well up … A poignant, honest, drily humorous rump-fest from a lost soul found.

  • [An] absolute riot of revelation…[Jones] owns up to his failings with a colourful candour that is moving.

    Neil McCormick, Telegraph
  • It can be harrowing, hilarious, and often touching, but above all, Lonely Boy is life-affirming. Thank you, Steve Jones.
