The surviving members of the Sex Pistols, sans John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten), are getting back together for a pair of benefit gigs August 13th and 14th at London’s Bush Hall.

Guitarist Steve Jones, bassist Glen Matlock and drummer Paul Cook will play the band’s debut album “Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols” with vocalist/tattoo artist Frank Carter (pictured) filling in for Lydon, who is on the outs with his former bandmates over the use of Sex Pistols music in the “Pistol” miniseries based on Jones’s “Lonely Boy: Tales From A Sex Pistol.” That dispute reignited longstanding, and apparently still unresolved feuds, among the band’s surviving members.

Proceeds from the shows will benefit Bush Hall, which like many independent live music stages, has been struggling lately.
