You may want to be careful about your caricaturization of the recording of Bollocks by session musicians -- it was only Vicious that had to be handled almost exclusively by session musicians including original Sex Pistol Glen Matlock. This is from the Wikipedia entry:

Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols was recorded between March and June 1977, in Wessex Studios, Highbury, London [38] and was produced by Chris Thomas, who had previously worked with Roxy Music. Due to Vicious' lack of musical ability, the bass parts on Never Mind the Bollocks were performed by others, including Glen Matlock, brought back as a session musician, Glen Thomas and Steve Jones. According to Jones: "Sid wanted to come down and play on the album, and we tried as hard as possible not to let him anywhere near the studio. Luckily he had hepatitis at the time".[11] Although Vicious did record on one occasion, his contribution was later over-dubbed. Jones recalls: "We just let him do it, innit. When he left I dubbed another part on, leaving Sid's down low. I think it might be barely audible on the track".[11]

Anyway, great post!
