FANTASY 7[edit]

++ Fantsy 7 a.k.a. F7 ++

Fantasy 7 was a band making its mark in Los Angeles, recorded in California 1992 and a small gig-tour of L.A. and B.A. Sth America followed, and was officially the first time Steve had left LA ( due to being illegal in USA till then )and he was 100% straight 'DRUG FREE' and macrobiotic. Songs were penned by Steve Jones and Mark McCoy (R.I.P.). Official website for F7 can be found at and was concieved over the years by the Hollywood guitar tech Martin Strayd with assistance form all members and some fans - info, questions and submissions: or

The Term Guitar Hero[edit]

'Jones sprayed the words "Sex Pistols" and "Guitar Hero" on the grill cloth of the Fender Twin, and it is rumored he coined the phrase Guitar Hero'

Can anyone cite this? Joe Strummer uses the term in a lyric on the Clash's Album "The Clash" released in 1976, only a year after the sex pistols proper formed. That may be the first usage, unless someone has a source that knows better. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:28, 19 May 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Reference made to Jones' current gig as a DJ on LA radio station KDLD (Indie 103.1)

Appearance in Guitar Hero 3[edit]

Shouldn't we mention this? If only because GH3 is God's greatest gift to mankind to date. Also, because it's interesting in general :)

Greedy Bastards[edit]

No mention of the "Punk Supergroup" featuring Jones and Cook, plus Phil Lynott, Bob Geldof (?), Johnny Fingers and their Christmas single "We Wish You A Merry Jingle"? There might have been a Mark II version with Lemmy and ("Philphy Animal" Taylor?) involved. All the above is per my imperfect memory, so someone needs to find sources - I think the NME at the time reviewed the band/single. LessHeard vanU (talk) 23:55, 13 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
