Last One For Sid

On this day in 1978 Elvis Castello, Joan Jett, Captain Sensible and members of Blondie watched Sid Vicious hit the stage for the very last time at London’s Electric Ballroom. Sid was joined by John ‘Rat Scabies’ Miller (The Damned), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols) and his ‘not dead yet’ lady friend Nancy Spungen. 

About a month and a half later (Oct. 12, 1978) Sid woke up to discover his hanger-on girlfriend/manager Nancy dead in their Chelsea Hotel digs. So stared the mystery and legendary speculation(s) of Sid Vicious.

Sid vicious died on February 2, 1979 at the fresh age of 21.
