Sid Vicious was an English bassist and vocalist who became famous as a member of the rock band ‘Sex Pistols’. Born in Lewisham, England, Vicious began his career with the band ‘Flowers of Romance’. Known for his rebellious persona, self-destructive nature, and bad attitude, he was found to be an ideal candidate for the controversial punk group ‘Sex Pistols’ when they needed to replace their member Glen Matlock. Vicious worked in two of the songs in the band’s only studio album ‘Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols’. The album was a major success, peaking at the first position on the UK Albums Chart. Some of his other successful works include ‘God Save The Queen’ and ‘Holidays in the Sun’. Despite his professional successes, his personal life was a troubled one. Over the course of his career, he met Nancy Spungen, who became his girlfriend. They had a highly volatile relationship, marred with drug abuse and emotional violence. It ended on a tragic note when Nancy was found brutally killed in 1978. Shortly after, Vicious himself was found dead due to drug overdose in New York City.
