Sid Vicious

Today bring you John Simon Ritchie a.k.a. Sid Vicious. For those who don´t know him, he was the bassist of the famous punk rock band Sex Pistols. In terms of skill and music ability Sid was pretty bad even Lenny from the band Motorhead said “he still couldn´t play bass when he died”. You may ask why have him in the band? Simple, charisma, he was without doubt charismatic and he somehow personified the punk spirit which made him extremely popular.

Sid had many demons and one of those demons was heroin. He met his end on February 2 1979 by overdose. Still some claim that he killed himself thanks to a suicide note that was found in one of his jackets.
Rest in Peace Sid Vicious 10 May 1957 – 2 February 1979


P.S. - Yes, I'm not writing this post. It's a friend of mine, that really likes music but not for the same reasons that I do. He tried to show me a good example of what is music for him - "Charisma". With all the respect, that's a very poor Pop Culture (I'm sorry True Pop Culture lovers). Eremita
