Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Vicious' mum Anne Beverley committed suicide in 1996.
2Is portrayed by Gary Oldman in Sid and Nancy (1986)
3His $50,000 bail from the second degree murder charge was revoked when he was arrested for hitting Patti Smith's brother, Todd, with a beer mug one night at a New York club.
4His ashes were scattered on Nancy Spungen's grave by his mother, Ann. Eileen Polk said that Spungen's family would not allow Sid to be buried next to her, despite his request, nor would the Jewish cemetery permit scattering the ashes there. They were escorted through the cemetery and Ann later returned to scatter the ashes in secret.
5Invented the "pogo" dance. Vicious went to a Sex Pistols gig before he joined the band and wanted to get a better look at them so he would jump up and down in a frenzy, and soon it caught on and more and more people did it.
6During the famed summer 1976 "Punk Festival" at London's 100 Club, Vicious became involved in a brawl with another punk, and tossed a beer mug at him. The mug missed, shattered against a pillar, and put a girl's eye out. Vicious was charged, convicted and fined for the incident.
7Was a member of the "Bromley Contingent," a group of young punk fans who followed the Pistols and other punk bands around England.
8Gained the emnity of the Clash's Mick Jones due to his habit of wearing a Nazi Swastika t-shirt. Jones, who is Jewish, and the rest of the Clash vowed they would never appear on stage with the Sex Pistols.
9He was allegedly stunningly musically incompetent, even by punk standards. His bass work was so rudimentary, that it's rumored (and all the members of the band corroborate) that original Sex Pistol bassist Glen Matlock was invited to return to record basslines over Vicious' originals, even though he had left the band under extremely acrimonious circumstances.
10During the filming of Alex Cox's "Sid and Nancy", Sid's mother gave the actor who played Sid (a relative unknown named Gary Oldman) Sid's famous padlock necklace.
11There was no key for his padlock chain necklace.
12His stage name was given to him as a joke, because of his inability to defend himself in a fight. John Lydon (Johnny Rotten) once commented, "Sid couldn't punch his way out of a bag of crisps!"
13Former bassist for the pioneering punk band The Sex Pistols.
14Boyfriend of Nancy Spungen.
15For a short time Sid played drums for Siouxie and the Banshees in the 1970's.
16Murdered his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen, in 1978. Trial for the murder began January 2, 1979. Sid died before the trial ended. He confessed to the murder, but from his story and the evidence surrounding the murder scene, it appears she encouraged him to do it.
17On 2 February 1980, in honor of the first anniversary of Sid's death, one thousand punks marched from London's Sloane Square in Chelsea to Hyde Park. His Mother, Anne Beverly, was supposed to have taken part in the proceedings, but she was in the hospital due to a drug overdose.

Quotes

#Quote
1[towards the end of the Sex Pistols career] "In the end I was the only one with any anarchy left in me."
2[Talking about joining the Sex Pistols] I was getting my own group together; "The Flowers of Romance", and John (Lydon) said to me - there was this big hoo-haa, and Malcolm was saying "it's all a big secret man, you know. Come down to this pub at such-and-such", and I thought they were gonna do me over cos I didn't turn up to one of Rotten's parties or something - he gets touchy over things like that. And they said "do you wanna play bass for The Sex Pistols?"
3When there are no more categorizations; when there are no more "niggers", when there are no more "whites", when there's just "people", you know, when there's no more "punks" when there's no more "dirt", that is when everything is gonna be OK.
4On John Lydon, a.k.a. Johnny Rotten: "John's just jealous because I'm the brains of the group. I've written all the songs, even from the beginning when I wasn't in the group."
5On what EMI thought the Sex Pistols were: "We weren't the nice boys they thought we were. And, we weren't nice boys, we were fuckin' nasty little bastards... and we still are.
6I got this feeling I'm gonna die before I get old. I don't know why. I just have this feeling.
7On drugs: "I don't want to be a junkie for the rest of my life. I don't want to be a junkie at all."
