Sid Vicious

1957 - 1979

Sid Vicious (10 May 1957 - 2 February 1979)

(born John Simon Ritchie) was an English musician best known as the bassist of the influential punk rock group Sex Pistols. In 2006 he was inducted posthumously into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the Sex Pistols.
On the evening of 1 February 1979, a small gathering to celebrate Sid's having made bail was held at the 63 Bank Street, New York apartment of his new girlfriend, Michele Robison, whom he had started dating the day he got out of Bellevue Hospital the previous October. Vicious was clean; having been on a detoxification methadone programme, he detoxed from heroin during his time at Rikers Island. However, at the dinner gathering, his mother (who was once a registered addict herself) had some heroin delivered, against the wishes of Sid's girlfriend. The person who delivered it, Peter Kodick, came and stayed for a while. Vicious overdosed at midnight that night but everyone who was there that night worked together to get him up and walking around in order to revive him. At 3am Sid and Michele Robison went to bed together. Vicious was discovered dead late the next morning.
