The doomed romance of Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen is a tale of strong and iconic personalities that will always have a place in the punk mythos. Theirs was a romance that was wrapped in the throes of nihilistic passion and desolation. It was a huge contributing factor that led to the demise of the Sex Pistols and is unfortunately a story that has been done to death. In an attempt to revitalize interest in the myth and legend surrounding these two iconoclastic characters at punk, Danny Garcia sets out with newly released grand jury evidence and a host of interviews with people who knew the doomed Romeo/Juliet lovers. Interviewees included Stephen “Roadent” Conolly, Leee Black Childers, Bob Gruen and many others. Of particular interest were interviews with longtime Chelsea Hotel residents Victor Colicchio, “Neon” Leon Mathews and Ned Van Zandt.
