Glen Matlock, Earl Slick & Slim Jim Phantom Tour
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Punk Legend Glen Matlock and his friends Jim and Slick are back on the road in the UK for another great rock n roll tour.
The band of longtime friends love to play together as Glen’s solo outfit playing songs from Glen’s solo career and and rocka billy versions of Sex Pistols classics. The tour always shows the good times and cameraderie of a jam session at its best.
Glen was the youngest member of The Sex Pistols at only 16 and he wrote many of their hits from God Save The Queen, and he also played for many years in Iggy Pop's band. Slim Jim Phantom was a member of the Stray Cats and Earl Slick was Bowie’s guitarist.
Punk rock veteran Glen Matlock made his name as original bassist and key creative force in The Sex Pistols. In recent years, Matlock has added stints with Earl Slick’s Slinky Vagabond, the Mike Peters fronted Dead Men Walking, and even the reformed Faces to an eclectic, ever-expanding rock ‘n’ roll CV, and has also established his own group The Philistines.

Slim Jim Phantom
Slim Jim Phantom has secured his place as a true rock n roll icon. As the legendary drummer for the Stray Cats Phantom, alongside band mates Brian Setzer and Lee Rocker, spearheaded the neo-rockabilly movement of the early 80s. With a love for 50s rock n roll the Stray Cats took inspiration from the bygone era and mixed with their youthful energy and aggression produced the updated hard-edged rockabilly sound that saw them conquer London, Europe and later the US, gaining fans among the likes of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Robert Plant along the way. Over 25 years and millions of record sales later and Slim Jim Phantom continues to inspire and excite audiences worldwide. With a sound, style and image that remains as fresh today as it ever was Phantom has cemented his place among rock royalty. Considered by many as the coolest drummer in rock n roll, Phantom’s influence is still clearly felt on today’s music scene with countless rockabilly drummers imitating his pioneering stand-up style.
