The Professionals-the brilliant band that Sex Pistols Paul Cook and Steve Jones formed after the Pistols demise never really fufilled their potentional, splitting shortly after the 'Didnt See It Coming ' album in 1982. Now it seems the band may get together later this year for more shows. Believe me, this band were great-and if you have never heard the album, check it out. Excellent, melodic,guitar driven rock.

Further to the previously mentioned Professionals reunion rumours, Steve said on Jonesy's Jukebox yesterday he would like to reform The Professionals for some shows next year: "Just going up and down the (West) coast." However this would depend on there being sufficient demand for tickets to cover costs.
