“Pistol ss 2”: release date, announcement
Devoted fans have been waiting for the film adaptation of the biography of “Sex Pistol” and everyone who was associated with them for a long time. Unfortunately, the continuation of the “Pistol” project has not been announced – one season was enough to tell about the ups and downs of rock music fans.
The quarrelsome character of Steve Jones originated in childhood memories. Being a wayward child, he did not know mother’s love. That made him want to protest even more. The stepfather was not shy in his expressions, preferring that the stepson get out of his sight as soon as possible and live independently. But the years went by, and the youngster only had fun and stole.
Jones was often found by the police, and at the most inopportune times. The guy was used to a debauched lifestyle and constantly inclined friends to outrageous acts. Under the protests of a friend, he easily stole an expensive car, and then threw it in an empty area. After the concert of his idol David Bowie, Steve managed to steal expensive equipment, which he later used for personal purposes.
Over time, Jones managed to assemble a team of like-minded people with whom he planned to build an entire rock empire. Since his only legitimate hobby was a musical career, he enlisted the help of Malcolm McLaren, a local revolutionary and part-time director of a boutique with the flashy name “Sex”. Soon Steve gets a real opportunity to make his dream come true.
But the closer Steve gets to his cherished dream, the more trouble arises. The relationship with his parents deteriorates to such an extent that he stops all communication with them. Succumbing to a bad impulse, the musician goes on a crime and tries to steal the necessary equipment again. At the same moment, Steve is caught by the police and sent to jail.
But since McLaren does not leave those in trouble who are charged with potential, then Jones is not left without help. After appreciating the help provided by a newfound friend, Steve decides not to miss the chance and gets on the right path. In this he is helped by a saleswoman from Malcolm’s store, hobby companions and incredible inspiration…
