Jones was born in Shepherds Bush.[1] His early influences were Iggy & The Stooges, and glam rock icons like Roxy Music and David Bowie. He was an only child and his father, Don Jarvis, an amateur boxer, left when he was two years old.
Up to the age of twelve, he grew up in Hammersmith with his young mother, who worked as a hairdresser, and his grandparents. He then moved to Benbow Road in Shepherd's Bush, with his fourteen criminal convictions and was the subject of a council care-order. He spent a year in a remand centre, which he says was more enjoyable than being at home, and has said that the Sex Pistols saved him from a life of crime. He was also a member of the Queens Park Rangers F.C. hooligan firm where he picked up a few more convictions for football related disorder.
For The Sex Pistols in the seventies he used a Gibson Les Paul Double Cutaway at first to get a "Johnny Thunders" feel and sound. Then Malcolm McLaren gave Steve Sylvain Slyvain's 1974 White Gibson Les Paul Custom with the 2 pin up girl stickers on it, which Sylvain used during the final years of The New York Dolls. He also used a 1954 Black Gibson Les Paul Custom with P90's, and Sunburst Gibson Firebird. In the late 90's, Steve was offered free Burny Les Paul Customs, straps, picks and cables if he played their guitar. They made 2 models for him which he used on the 2002-2003 North American Piss Off Tour. At around 2005 he went back to using Gibsons, but has still been seen playing his Burny. Gibson finally put out a "Steve Jones Inspired Les Paul Model" to the exact specs of his original White Les Paul Custom.
Jones' amp during The Sex Pistols in the 70's was a Fender Twin Reverb with Gauss Speakers, and while Glen Matlock was in the band Steve used an MXR Script Phase 90 pedal. The amp used on "Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols" was a silver face Fender Twin with stock speakers. He also used Music Man Amps during the mid 1977 Scandinavian tour. He used Fender cables. For the Sex Pistols' reunion in 1996, Steve switched to Marshall amps, which he still uses today.In February 2004, Jones began hosting a daily radio program in Los Angeles, called 'Jonesy's Jukebox', on Indie 103.1 FM. The premise of the show was that the self-described "Sire of Wilshire" could do whatever he wanted (within FCC rules), with no direction from station management. You can hear a snippet from the show in the opening scenes of the 2006 film, The Dog Problem.
Jones mixed an eclectic playlist, from his own collection of CDs, with rambling and often humorous interviews of guests from the entertainment industry. He frequently interacted on-air with "Big Ed", his nickname for program producer Kevin Begley. Indie 103.1 last broadcast Jonesy's Jukebox 14 January 2009; Indie 103.1 ceased to exist as a broadcast radio station on 15 January 2009.
In November 2009 he guested on BBC Radio's 6Music with five Sunday shows titled 'A Month of Sundays with Steve Jones', playing a mix of tunes from his childhood through to the current day. In December 2009, the show was revived and now airs via internet radio on, a website run by producer Ryan Kavanaugh.
