6. Sid Vicious & Nancy Spungen: Sex Pistols! Sid Vicious, was the bassist and vocalist, of the influential punk rock band – the Sex Pistols. He had a roller coaster romance with Nany Spungen. They loved each other but also fought a lot. They were very passionate and loved in the fight. Both of them were addicted to heroin, which had a lot to do with the tumultuous relationship. In 1978 when the Sex Pistols disbanded, they moved to New York City and checked into the Hotel Chelsea under the names “Mr. and Mrs. John Simon Ritchie,” which was his real name. Many famous musicians have lived in the Hotel Chelsea, which is why it is a landmark and is iconic in itself. There have been numerous songs and stories written inside those walls, and in return it has inspired much writing. Leonard Cohen’s popular song, “Chelsea Hotel,” is about the Hotel Chelsea and his time with Janis Joplin. While Vicious and Spungen lived as residents of the Hotel Chelsea, they were on a lot of drugs. In 1978, Spungen was found dead in the bathroom of their room, under the sink at the young age of 20. She was stabbed to death in the abdomen, with only one single stab wound. It was reported that Vicious owned the knife that was used to kill her. He was arrested right away and charged with the murder. However; he pleaded not guilty and was released on $50,000 bail. He died four months later, at age 21 of a heroin overdose, before he could go to trial, and therefore; the NYPD closed the case. Before that occurred, he attempted suicide and slashed his entire arm with a knife. It was reported he did that and then screamed, “I want to be with my Nancy! I want to be left alone!” There are many different theories about the murder, however. Many believe that Vicious did not kill her, and that it was in fact one of their regular drug dealers. Sid Vicious had his ashes scattered over Nancy’s grave, on top of the snow, by his mother. Sid Vicious had written a poem titled “Nancy” before he died. It read, “You were my little baby girl/ And I knew all your fears/ Such joy to hold you in my arms/ And kiss away your tears/ But now you’re gone/ There’s only pain/ And nothing I can do/ And I don’t want to live this life/ If I can’t live for you.”
