Sex Pistols Comeback Tour? Another One!?

For some reason, the music media seems to be buzzing about the latest reunion of legendary 70s punk band Sex Pistols. Why, I have no idea. Maybe it is because the media only viewed the Pistols as some sort of sensationalist joke back in the 70s and didn't realize the importance of their music. Or maybe it is because music "journalists" view punk rock as nostalgia, and the music media loves nostalgia. I don't know and I don't care. The Sex Pistols were a great band in 1977. They made a great album, Never Mind the Bollocks. But I'm sorry, seeing them as 50 year olds celebrating the 30th anniversary of their one actual album seems a little sad. I watched them on Jay Leno last week, and they seemed like just another band. Maybe it's just me, but part of what made the Pistols so special was that they did not stick around too long. They never got old. Well, until now...
