The Doors was the common ground, we found a band we, shockingly, both liked. I had the lyrics ready. The Sex Pistols? You know what this is about. I do pay attention! Mclaren suggested him for the job.
The double album was not a result of the film. I finally had a really good chance to listen to this album, and I was quite unimpressed.

The thing that's always got me about the Pistols is how little most other punk bands resembled them musically - they were never mindless thrash merchants, they were in all aspects except the vocals quite a trad rock band, albeit a viciously powerful one.
Just a basic, punk album. A glimpse at the life of Sid Viscious is enough to explain, but it wasn't the Pistols that invented this -- they were just the inheritors of a bankrupt art-form that had died in or so as George correctly argues elsewhere on this site.
