"He’d have piles of Spiderman, Hulk and The Fantastic Four. Then, later, it was all Mad magazine, which he thought was hilarious. He liked the bit at the beginning where they would really go for it and take the piss out of some new movie, like the latest blockbuster, because he never really liked movies. But the comic books he loved.” Photo by Bob Gruen
"… And Sid just smiles, that big goofy smile of his that was what he was really all about."
"When we toured Sweden there were these two little kids who worked in this punk shop and one of ‘em was twelve.These kids were incredible! I spent the whole day with ‘em, they shoved me around and we had really good fun… and they took me out and bought me a load of sweets and things, it was just great. They were brilliant, they were fantastic.. And I gave one kid my favourite t-shirt…" -Sid Vicious

"Sid was very young, very much a kid. He was more into sweets when I first met him. People forget that he was very young."
“We called him Vicious because he wasn’t Vicious, he’s just a big baby who eats sweets. Look at him.”

"Pogoing started because when I first went to see the Pistols they were the only band that I ever wanted to dance to. And I couldn’t dance. I didn’t know how to dance. So the only thing I could think of was leaping up and down really fast… Just like boeing boeing boeing boeing…" -Sid
