  1. Great interview! Thank you! I actually always wonder if Sid Vicious would have become a superstar because his version of My Way is awesome!

  2. Great interveiw was gutted at the abrupt ending was enjoying it so much, what genuinely nice and honest bloke and agree Finsbury park was one of their finest moments, and I only got to hear it on the radio. Saw The Professionals last month at Stone Valley festival.

  3. Great interview. Met Paul a few times, once at Gatwick airport, was on my way to watch the Pistols abroad and they were on my flight, pleasant fella. Steve Jones quickly moved seats when he found out which certain other band member was going to sit next to him lol.
