New! Sid! Vicious! Documentary!


On Tuesday, Nov. 17, Odeon Entertainment and MVD Visual release Sid!—By Those Who Really Knew Him, a documentary on the short life and times of Sex Pistols' bassist Sid Vicious.

Although an iconic slice of pop culture, Hollywood's treatment of Vicious in Sid and Nancy was in the form of a rom-dram(a) that focused mainly on the relationship between the doomed lovers—both dead before the age of 22. This documentary promises unseen archive footage and a look at Vicious' life through the eyes of people who were close to him, people whose stories may humanize the troubled musician.

The special edition of the DVD will be bundled with a 10-track CD of Sid live (not sure if that's a bonus) and a biography booklet (whatever that is). Find it here.
