Sid Vicious

Ritchie took his nickname, "Vicious", after his friend John Lydon's hamster, described by Lydon as "the softest, furriest, weediest thing on earth".[1] At the time, he was squatting with Lydon, John Wardle (Jah Wobble) and John Gray (the four were sometimes referred to as The Four Johns).

According to the band's photographer, Dennis Morris, Ritchie was "deep down, a shy person." However, he did assault NME journalist Nick Kent with a motorcycle chain in retaliation for Kent's domestic assault on former girlfriend Chrissie Hynde.

Sex Pistols

Already known as "the ultimate Sex Pistols fan," and a close friend of vocalist Johnny Rotten, Ritchie was asked to join the group after Glen Matlock's departure in February 1977. Manager Malcolm McLaren once claimed "if Rotten is the voice of punk, then Vicious is the attitude". He was not renowned for his playing skills, though he did have some composing ability, as was later shown when he composed the track "Belsen Was A Gas" entirely by himself. In his autobiography No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs, Lydon writes, "he wasn't too bad at all for three-chord songs." Ritchie played his first gig with the Pistols on April 3, 1977, at the Screen on the Green in London. His debut was filmed by Don Letts and appears in Punk Rock Movie.

Nancy Spungen and the end of the Pistols

In November 1977, Ritchie met American groupie Nancy Spungen, and they immediately began a relationship (Spungen had come to London looking for Jerry Nolan of The Heartbreakers). She was a heroin addict, and Ritchie, who already believed in his own "live fast, die young" image, soon shared the dependence. Although they were deeply in love, their often violent and rocky relationship had a disastrous effect on the Sex Pistols. Both the group and Ritchie visibly deteriorated during their 1978 American tour. The Pistols broke up in San Francisco after their concert at the Winterland Ballroom on January 14, 1978. With Spungen acting as his "manager," Ritchie embarked on a solo career during which he performed with musicians including Mick Jones of The Clash, original Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock, Rat Scabies of The Damned and the New York Dolls' Arthur Kane, Jerry Nolan, and Johnny Thunders.

Spungen's murder

Sid Vicious' arrest

Meanwhile, Ritchie and Spungen had become locked in their own world of drug addiction and self-destruction.

On the morning of October 12, 1978, he awoke from a drugged stupor to find Spungen dead on the bathroom floor of their room (room 100) in the Hotel Chelsea in New York City. She had suffered a single stab wound to her abdomen and apparently bled to death. He was arrested and charged with her murder although he said he had no memory of the event. There are several theories that Spungen was murdered by someone else, usually said to be one of the two drug dealers who visited the apartment that night, and involving a possible robbery as certain items (including a substantial bankroll) were claimed to be missing from the room.

Bail of USD $50,000 was put up by Virgin Records at McLaren's request. The plan was for Vicious to record an album with fellow Pistols Steve Jones and Paul Cook in order to raise funds for his defense. This was to be a collection of standards including (according to McLaren) "White Christmas" and "Mack the Knife". It is also possible, according to Paul Cook, that the album was to be a selection of Ritchie's favorite songs and would have included tracks from The Stooges, the Ramones, the New York Dolls and The Heartbreakers.[citation needed] The word bail as a legal term means: Security, usually a sum of money, exchanged for the release of an arrested person as a guarantee of that persons appearance for trial. ...

Death

On February 2, 1979, a small gathering to celebrate his release was held at the home of his girlfriend, Michele Robison, whom he'd started living with the day he got out of Bellevue Hospital that October. During his time at Rikers Island jail, he had gotten off of heroin, and was clean. However, at the dinner gathering, he obtained some heroin from his mother, took a tiny amount, and accidentally overdosed that night. His girlfriend revived him. Much later that night, the couple fell asleep together. Ritchie was discovered dead the next morning. New York Chief Coroner Michael Baden explained at the time, when a person has an accidental heroin overdose, and then falls asleep, their heart slows with every REM phase. Ritchie died at around 10:00AM, after the repeated REM phases, throughout the night.

Though it was Peter Kodick who delivered the drugs that night, Phil Strongman contends that Rockets Redglare dealt the fatal dose of heroin; knowing who it was for, he ensured it was 99% pure rather than 22% (which itself was considered strong at the time).[citation needed]

Vicious then attempted to launch a solo career, with Spungen assuming the role of manager and various British and American punk musicians acting as his new band The Idols.
Sid Vicious (1896 words)
Sid Vicious, the bass player of The Sex Pistols, had once more traipsed down to his band's rehearsal room for a much-needed repertoire brush-up, merely to encounter yet again the irksome absence of the other three members of the band.
Vicious was speaking from his hotel room somewhere (he didn't claim to know exactly where) in Belgium after a day of being driven round cities to private doctors by a Pistols' roadie for some kind of temporary cure to his constant bad-health problem (to little avail).
Vicious said he would to a requisite extent, but what he didn't know was that as the five talked it out, Nancy, whom it had been decided was the "ruination of simple Sid", was being "persuaded" by two of the Pistols organisation to take the next flight to New York.
