DID SID'S MA REALLY OFF HIM?

Dear Lady Macbeth . . . and the rest of you who simply cannot remove those nasty blood stains from your hands,

Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols was one of the contenders in my most recent Battle of the Bands. 

He lost.

Always a loser, poor boy.

Anyflop, a number of you seemed interested when I mentioned that Sid's mum admitted to killing him with an overdose of heroin because she knew he wouldn't be able to handle prison, which is where he was most likely headed as a result of killing his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen. Actions have consequences sometimes, Sid.

Sid and Nancy in happier times. Ha.

I decided to conduct a little research to see what I could learn about Sid's mum, and I reached the conclusion that no one knows the truth except the people who were there, and they are dead as can be.

That Sid's mum bought the heroin that killed him seems to be undisputed. Others attending the happy Sid is out of jail party said that Sid overdosed, so they kept him awake. He went and died on 'em anyway. Was it because his mommy gave him another shot?

Sid's mum committed suicide in 1996. Most likely BEFORE she died, she said she found a suicide note in his pocket. I've also read and heard that she gave Sid the overdose intentionally.

I don't think we're going to learn the truth, and it doesn't really matter.

Anycorpse, you can watch the movie Sid and Nancy, if you like. Gary Oldman is quite good as Sid. I've also learned that a documentary called Who Killed Nancy? is available on YouTube. Apparently a number of people feel that Sid did not kill Nancy, that he was too out of it on drugs to have stabbed her. I read a couple of reviews of the documentary. Most people don't think it's very good, so I doubt if I'll bother to watch it. 

My time is precious.

Now, let's let Beck take us out with Loser.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug








Shut up, Kanye. Just shut the fuck up, and don't ever, ever again interrupt when someone wins an award. Yo mama did not raise you right.

And you and Beyonce and whatever might make a lot of money, but you will never play as many instruments as Beck does, you will never have the vocal range that Beck has, and I will never come to see you because I saw Beck and I don't need anything more.

  2. Janie, you need to overcome your shyness and learn to speak your mind! :)

    I took your advice and looked for that movie. I thought I found it on Crackle. Turns out I didn't read the title carefully enough. It was called RON and Nancy and it was quite different from the scenario you described. There were a whole lotta people chanting "Just say no."

    Enjoy the rest of your week, dear Janie Junebug!

  3. That family's just one sad story after another. It's sad to watch.

    I love the guitar in that song. That and Where It's At are my two favourite Beck songs.

  4. Perhaps I should have taken a bigger interest in the music scene once upon a time. Sid and Nancy who. Although I did mention to my granddaughter the other day that it was a beautiful day, almost like that song about the country. I turned to my sister: You know, Paul McCartney and Linda. Red Rose Speedway or something. No, she said, his band was Wings. She sang the first line about going to the country. If I said Sid and Nancy to her she probably could give me chapter and verse, but she'd also think I had two heads.

    1. There's a lot I don't know about music. Kids always look at us as if we're lizards with two heads and our tails have just been cut off and squiggled away.

  5. "Anycorpse"-Hahahaaa-I love it! I look at that picture and the last thing I think of them in happier times. No matter what, his mom would never win mother of the year awards.

  8. Sid's mom bought the heroin for him - but she didn't factor in that he had been detoxed and was off of everything. The normal value of the "street heroin" he was using was about 5% purity. No one knows how she pulled it off, but she purchased heroin that was tested and found to be 80% pure. Bad move.

    1. Yes, I read about him detoxing in jail and then Mommy gave him such good junk. I believe Janis Joplin also overdosed because she obtained some unusually pure heroin.

  9. I'm interested in Curt Cobain's story. I saw a book on him recently that I'm going to buy.
    There is something about living on the edge that fascinates me.

    Totally agree with the opinion of Kanye, BTW. ;)

    1. We went for my birthday one year. It was probably around 2000. He was amazing. He's a great dancer, and I think he has a four octave range. He's a sexy little dude, too.
