Urban Myths: Sex Pistols vs Bill Grundy:
This is the re-imagined story behind The Sex Pistols’ infamous appearance on Bill Grundy’s show in 1976, a year before their legendary debut album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols was released.
The foul-mouthed encounter catapulted The Sex Pistols into the public eye and signaled the arrival of mainstream punk, while simultaneously destroying Grundy’s career – and all because of a last minute cancellation by Freddie Mercury.
Stars Daniel Mays, Steve Pemberton, Kieran Hodgson, and Kayvan Novak.
In 1976 Queen cancelled a television appearance so The Sex Pistols filled in and the rest as they say is history.
