    I was sorry to see Sid's stuff destroyed but I thought it was perfectly in line with Johnny to do that and I have to say, the whole scene was pretty good television.
    I never would have seen Sid's shirt and pants and boots along with the note if Rotten never did that in the first place.

    that's true. it WAS good tv. but I just think Johnny HAS to be as shocking as possible to make up for his lack of talent.

    I have done all I could to understand these two, and I don't get it, except that they were two drug addicts.

    yup katie, I agree- I think the movie Sid and Nancye just put it into perspective for me.

    They were extremely sick and demented based on drug use. The sad part is, they were really children.

    Does anyone know how long they were together?

  14. #114
    I know this has probably been said - but her and Courtney sure look alike in some poses/photos. Also, in the few interview clips I have seen with her - she did most of the talking, seemed overbearing and very annoying. Think that was the drugs or was that just the kind of person she was? Gosh, they were so young..,,

    According to Debbie Spungen (Nancy's mom), she was ALWAYS like that. She ruled the family.

    Remember John Lydon's tv show in the '90's "Rotten TV"? Well Johnny had punk clothes from the '70's on a mannequin and he said they were "Sidney's clothes" and he put a note Sid wrote once (Lydon said it was an original) and he put the note on the mannequin and put the mannequin in an open field and then he got in a tank and fired a round at the mannequin completely destroying everything.
    Lydon/Rotten looked into the camera in that classic Rotten sneer and says "Poor Sidney".
    Yeah that why that little shit was crying in that documentary when discussing Sid and how he didn't help him as much as he could have, right? He's always gotta keep the posing up.

    Ah yes, I was reading this thread a few nights ago, and couldn't get enough of the Sid & Nancy videos.

    There's another lengthier video, where Nancy takes off that rubber top she's wearing. Dear Lord ... the sweat this chic had beneath that rubber top, all over the inside-out part, just looked God awful. Ugh.

    Sorry to sound so crude, but from what I've read (not what I know) that heroin junkie sweat is absolutely horrendous.

    Oh ... and cawfee, Sid, you want me to make you a cup of cawfee ??? That's a Philly accent, yes?

    And yes, two addicts who just didn't live long enough . My wish would be for Sid and Nancy to have lived, and laughing their asses off at "the internets" that STILL make them famous.

    I pray for my children every day. The lure of drugs scares the absolute HELL outta me.

    Too bad they can't be resurrected and "fast forwarded" to the time we live in now, imagine what they'd make of just the internet itself, let alone the fact that so many people are still interested in their story all these years later

    I have to be honest and say I like the Pistols.
    The natural reaction is to disregard them and stuff but they had some really good music.
    I thought PIL was really good as well.
    John Lydon is Not an no talent.

    Yeah, I agree. The Sex Pistols were great.

    But its too bad Sid really couldn't play bass... Check out this clip to see what I mean (although I'm sure most of you already know this): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZ9eR_Yq6ow

    Yeah, Sid was somewhat lacking (ahem) on bass but I still enjoyed their music.
    Give me the Sex Pistols over any band listed on the most hated band thread, that's for sure.

    [SIZE=3]1st posting here so Helooo all!!![/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3]I was born and have lived and worked in Islington (North London) all my life and as a teenager , in the mid 70’s would sneak out on a Sunday lunchtime to see the bands in the “Hope and Anchor” in Upper Street. Many were RUBBISH!! But some stood out. The Pistols were a little scary because they were sooo intense but you always remembered them (I did stop going once the spitting started to get too much) of course that was before Sid became the Bass player (Glenn Matlock – who could actually play was with them in those days)[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3]The energy and the different sound was very exciting to an innocent 16 year old. By far and away the best band I saw in those halcyon days was Ian Dury & the blockheads (maybe we should start a thread about the Marvellous Ian!!!?)[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3]BTW….I don’t know if any one else has mentioned it but the reason Johnny Rotten stooped so much when he appeared on stage was because he suffered badly from Piles (Haemorrhoids) [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3]Love the Site and grateful that I no longer fell like a freak for being fascinated by this stuff.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3]On another note, a friend of mine uses “who’s your favourite Serial Killer?” as his Chat Up Line – the girls either run away or are intrigued!!![/SIZE]

    Welcome aboard Harry's Cat.
    Interesting post about the Pistols.
    I also would like to add that I love Ian Dury!! Great songs and I saw an interview with him once (towards the end of his life) and he seemed like a nice guy.

    Regarding books on the Sex Pistols I agree with
    Death Hag Chris..." 12 Days on the Road: The
    Sex Pistols in America " is one of the best about
    the band hands down.

    Cheers all,

    The credit for this goes to Jazbabee! Thank you!

    I do have on personal experience with her that really stands out. I went to a private prep school. Nancy attended The Devereaux School, which was a private boarding school for emotionally disturbed adolescents. Most of the area prep schools reluctantly played Dvereaux in sports, because there tended to be a high rate of incidents with their students (antisocial, quick to fight, drug using - they were truly scary) So I knew her from seeing her around. She was on the softball team, or hung with them at one point. She focused in on a member of our team, ended up fighting with her during all of our games. During one game, she walked up to the member of our team and punched her squarely in the face, breaking our team members nose. In retaliation, our team member, ran and got an aluminum baseball bat, ran up behind Nancy, tapped her on the shoulder and cracked her over the head with the bat - Nancy immediately wennt down, everyone was pulled apart and taken for medical help. I know that Nancy was not expelled for the incident, because she went on to graduate from that school. Our team member however, was expelled, that type of behavior was totally unacceptable (and we were all in shock when it happened), and not tolerated under ANY circumstance. I had a couple other incidents/run ins with Nancy, but that was the one that stands out in my mind the most. Whenever I saw her anywhere, I tried my best to steer clear - she was TROUBLE of the worst kind, very disturbed individual.

    At the end of this doco, John Lydon breaks down when talking about Sid's death also it shows Sid being interviewed before he was due to go to trial for Nancy's murder, Asked how he felt he said, 'I wished he has six feet under'.

    Never liked the sex pistols.This guy remind's me of GG Allin.No talent and extremely self destructive.For gods sake his mother became a heroin addict so she could collect government payment's,and that was the roll model he grew up with!People become a product of their enviroment.You don't miss what you never had!

    They were on the first floor too, but that was when there were more rooms rented there.

    I always wondered why Debbie Spungeon referred to it as Darlington. Was it legal reasons?

She was on the softball team, or hung with them at one point. She focused in on a member of our team, ended up fighting with her during all of our games. During one game, she walked up to the member of our team and punched her squarely in the face, breaking our team members nose. In retaliation, our team member, ran and got an aluminum baseball bat, ran up behind Nancy, tapped her on the shoulder and cracked her over the head with the bat - Nancy immediately wennt down, everyone was pulled apart and taken for medical help. I know that Nancy was not expelled for the incident, because she went on to graduate from that school. Our team member however, was expelled, that type of behavior was totally unacceptable (and we were all in shock when it happened), and not tolerated under ANY circumstance. I had a couple other incidents/run ins with Nancy, but that was the one that stands out in my mind the most. Whenever I saw her anywhere, I tried my best to steer clear - she was TROUBLE of the worst kind, very disturbed individual.

    I know the pistols expecially John Lydon blamed Nancy for Sids heroin addiction! She turned him onto it according to what I have read and there is no love lost there! John talks a bit about her and cries over Sid in "The Filth and the Fury"
    Its hard not to see the Courtney/Nancy doppleganger too!

    I used to work at the Chelsea Hotel for a few months back in the early 90's for a guy who had turned his apartment into a recording studio. Plus I had a few friends that lived there. Also had a boyfriend that got us a room there for a few nights. And then I did a modeling shoot there one time. Suffice to say I spent enough time there and there was never a dull moment in that lobby. I remember a little girl who would always come and talk to me......her mom was VIVA one of Andy Warhols "superstars" and they lived upstairs. She became an actresss and was in "Uncle Buck". I wonder what ever happened to her. She was sweet and old for her age.
