Welcome to my Music Diary – today for the 2nd February!
Sid joined the Sex Pistols in 1977 and replaced Glen Matlock, who was dropped out, because of tensions with frontman Johnny Rotten. Before the British Punk band called it a day in January 1978, Sid Vicious crossed paths with his future girlfriend Nancy Spungen. The relationship was completely desctructive and mainly based on drug abuse.
On the 12th October 1978, Sid found Nancy dead on the bathroom floor of their room in the Chelsea Hotel in Manhattan. Spungen suffered a single stab wound and bled to death. Vicious, who confessed that he stabbed her but without meaning to kill her, was arrested and charged with murder. Ten days later, after Nancy’s passing, Vicious attempted suicide but survived. On the 1st February 1979, Vicious was out on bail. After a small celebration he overdosed around midnight.
