Sid Vicious’s Life Was Just As Messed Up As His Death

Few rock stars have burned out with the same vigor as Sid Vicious. His fireball career lasted only two years but in that tumultuous time, Vicious transformed from a shy David Bowie fanatic into a spiky-haired punk icon who will forever sneer at us from posters, ads, and book covers the world over.

He could never play a single Sex Pistols’ song successfully on his bass but it didn’t matter. Like the heroin that killed him, Sid Vicious was punk rock in its purest, most dangerous form. His wild antics were often the desperate acts of a junkie looking for his next fix and he surrounded himself with whatever destroyed him the most – violence, drugs, and his most lethal favorite, Nancy Spungen.
