This vintage photo of the infamous pairing of Sid and Nancy is going to be an easy favourite for fans of the punk-till-death band, Sex Pistols.
Sid Vicious rose to notoriety in the 70s with the band as they raged on in Britain’s punk scene. Playing bass, Vicious made up for his lack of formal guitar skills with his rowdy demeanor and ability to engage audiences with a no-holds-barred attitude. Ultimately, the untimely passing of the couple had made them more famous in death than when they were still alive. Vicious’ life and their love story is immortalized in Robert Cox’s 1986 biopic titled Sid and Nancy.
