The second bass player of the Sex Pistols. Born Simon John Beverly, When his father left, his mother renamed him John Simon Ritchie. He could actually only play one riff on bass, that he learn from a Ramones record while he was doped up on speed. On stage he mutalated himself and told the croud that they were fucking queers. The first band he was in was The Flowers Of Romance, who never played music, but just hung out and got high. The second band he was in was the original Siouxie & The Banshees. He was the drummer. After they ousted him, Malcolm Mclaren, the bitch manager of the Sex Pistols, asked him to join as the bassist. He did not get his stage name from Johnny R's 'vicious' hamster Sydney. His name came from the Pink Floyd member Syd Barret, and from 'Vicious' a song by The Velvet Underground.
Sid Vicious is fucking great. Fuck you if you think otherwise you little dicks!
