Don’t get nostalgic: Punk music memorabilia burned in London
LONDON (AP) — Don't get nostalgic about punk music — and if you do, don't go collecting memorabilia from the glory days of the Sex Pistols.

Joe Corre claimed his collection of clothes, posters and other music-related items was worth 5 million pounds ($6.25 million).
