SID AND NANCY: Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen were easily one of the most notorious and volatile couples in music history – Sid was a member of the Sex Pistols and Nancy was his badass other half! Together, the two were like a tornado of all that is unholy! They were also totally consumed by each other, and their path to self-destruction seemed inevitable. On the morning of October 12, 1978, after a prolonged drug binge, Nancy was found dead on the bathroom floor of a room in the New York’s Hotel Chelsea, with a stab wound to her abdomen. The knife belonged to Sid, who was also found stumbling around the hotel in a drugged-out stupor! According to one witness, Sid was overheard saying, ”I killed her …I can’t live without her”, but he also claimed that she fell on the knife. Sid was taken down to the station, where he was questioned and made a statement, confessing to the murder of his girlfriend. ”I did it because I’m a dirty dog,” he allegedly told police. That afternoon he was charged with murdering Nancy. Ten days after Nancy’s death, he attempted suicide by slitting his wrist, which landed him as a patient at Bellevue Hospital. He did some time at Riker’s Island after that, but was released on bail on February 1, 1979. The night of his release he attended a party at his new girlfriend’s house to celebrate, and despite the fact he had gotten clean by that point, he relapsed when his mom (who was no stranger to heroin) arranged for some drugs to be delivered to the house. Sid Vicious died of an overdose that night, and a few days later his mother found a suicide note in his pocket: ”We had a death pact, and I have to keep my half of the bargain. Please bury me next to my baby in my leather jacket, jeans and motorcycle boots. Goodbye”. They were, after all, some pretty cool boots!
