Sex Pistols┬ástar 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.
