2) The Sex pistols Bassist
He was a face, and a figurehead for those who wanted all of it and dreamt of doing and getting away with everything he ever did. Perhaps he represented a dream for those so incredibly dulled and jaded by the lifes they were forced to live. The young and shocking face of Anarchy.
But he was more then that too, he was important to the band and the movement and without him the Pistols wouldn't have the fans they do, the loyalty they have inspired or the minds they have changed. There are some who say that he wasn't important to the band because he couldn't play so brilliant, but the point of "punk" was D.I.Y, just doing it, the musical rebellion was a reaction to bands who thought that all music was, was playing, Bugger the importance of words, bugger truth or something actually enjoyable to listen to. Four minute drum solos are not impressive, just pretenious. Sid did what he could, and although they didnt write many new songs after Glen left, he did write Belsen Was A Gas, he was a good singer, if you listen to Somethin' Else and C'mon everybody, you find they are uplifting and they sound like the singer means it. Because with all of this he was a real person, he wasn't a fake who sat on a stage singing about things he knew nothing of. I think thats why his version of "My Way" has so much impact, He DID do it all. Everything he sang and played about.
in conclution SID VICIOUS is the definition of punk rock and is a fucking god
GOD BLESS SID
Sid Vicious died on February 2nd, 1979. He was 21 years and 9 months old.
Sid played in the first incarnation of Siouxsie and the Banshees, before joining the Pistols, meeting druggie Nancy Spungen, and basically wasting away until he died. Moral: Heroin is not good.
2: one of punk rock's pioneers with the Sex Pistols. Infameous for the Sid & Nancy tradic love story which ended with both being dead.
