Sex Pistols – Authentic Never Mind The Bollocks RIAA Platinum Award

An original RIAA Platinum Record award for “Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols” presented to the legendary Howie Klein. Klein, the former president of Reprise Records, co-founder of San Francisco indie label 415 Records and a San Francisco music writer and radio dj, interviewed the Sex Pistols twice while they were in San Francisco to play what turned out to be their final concert, in January, 1978. His piece “Sex Pistols: Tour Notes” ran in the February, 1978 “New York Rocker.” He was awarded this RIAA plaque shortly after the Pistols 1977 album finally was certified platinum in March, 1992. We purchased this directly from him, and at our request he authenticated it on the backing paper, writing “This platinum record for the Sex Pistols “Never Mind the Bollocks” was presented to me. I interviewed the Sex Pistols in 1978 while they were in San Francisco to play their final show at Winterland (both on KSAN and KSJO, the latter of which came out as a record named “Big Tits Over America.”) Howie Klein May 10, 2011.” The second image is a photograph of Klein (right) on the radio with Pistols Paul Cook and Steve Jones. This award had never been unpacked by Klein, and is in mint condition. We’ve seen many counterfeit Sex Pistols RIAA awards, but this one is absolutely genuine with perfect provenance. With our written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
