Sid Vicious - Happy 50th!

As I noted a few days ago, my Celebrity Secrets book provides evidence that elements of British Intelligence - namely MI5 - had secret opened files on the British Punk Rock band, the Sex Pistols back in the late 1970s.

Today would have marked the 50th birthday of Pistols bass-guitarist Sid Vicious (who replaced original bassist Glen Matlock in 1977), had he not overdosed on heroin at the age of 21 in 1979.

MI5, I'm sure, could not care less; but I raise a glass to stupid Sid on his birthday, who - for all of his flaws and complete inability to actually play the damned bass! - didn't deserve to go out in the fashion that he did.

As Laurence Binyon said: "They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old. At the going down of the sun, and at the dawning of the day, we shall remember them."
