Sid & Nancy
The most legendary rock n’ roll couple ever? Sid Vicious was playing his special brand of two string bass for the Sex Pistols and going around whacking journalists with bicycle chains, drinking himself into a stupor and taking enough speed to fuel the Chinese Olympic Team. Nancy was a professional groupie who went to London chasing after The Heartbreakers, only to meet Sid and allegedly introduce him to heroin. After the Sex Pistols broke up they moved to New York City and moved into a room at the Chelsea Hotel where Sid made an abortive attempt at a solo career and they concentrated on their drug taking. Sid allegedly stabbed Nancy to death in a fight in October 1978, saying in his signed confession, “I stabbed her, but I didn’t mean to kill her. I loved her, but she treated me like shit”. Vicious himself died of an overdose while awaiting trial for her murder. Awwww, sweet, sweet love.
