John Lydon Praises Mick Jagger for Paying Sid Vicious Murder Charge Lawyers
In a new interview with the Daily Record (via NME), Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon has alledged that Mick Jagger paid the legal fees for Sid Vicious when he was accused of murdering girlfriend Nancy Spungen: "The only good news is that I heard Mick Jagger got in there and brought lawyers into it on Sid's behalf because I don't think Malcolm lifted a finger. He just didn't know what to do," Lydon recalled. "For that, I have a good liking of Mick Jagger. There was activity behind the scenes from Mick Jagger so I applaud him. He never used it to advance himself publicity-wise." Lydon also had some harsh words to say about Spungen, who he described as a "hideous, awful person:" "Nancy Spungen was a hideous, awful person who killed herself because of the lifestyle and led to the destruction and subsequent death of Sid and the whole fiasco. I tried to help Sid through all of that and feel a certain responsibility because I brought him into the Pistols thinking he could handle the pressure. He couldn't. The reason people take heroin is because they can't handle pressure. Poor old Sid. "Her death is all entangled in mystery. It's no real mystery, though. If you are going to get yourself involved in drugs and narcotics in that way accidents are going to happen."
