Sid Vicious' death location

This is the location where Sid Vicious died from an overdose.

It is situated at 63 Bank Street in Manhattan, New York.

The punk icon's downfall began on October 11th, 1978, after his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen, was found stabbed to death in their hotel room.

Initially, Vicious admitted that he had killed Spungen. However, he later claimed that he didn't remember the incident because he had been drugged up on barbiturates.

During questioning, he reportedly changed his story a number of times.

Following Spungen's death, he was charged with second-degree murder and released on bail.

On December 7th, the Sex Pistols bassist was arrested for assaulting a man named Todd Smith at the Hurrah nightclub on West 62nd Street. As a result, he was charged with assault, sent to Rikers Island, and forced to complete a detoxification program.

During a court hearing on January 18th, 1979, the judge presiding over Vicious' assault case surprised everyone by allowing him to be released on bail. This shocked most observers, as the bassist was already out on bail for the murder of Nancy Spungen when the nightclub attack occurred.

Essentially, this meant that Vicious had now been granted bail for two serious charges that had occurred only two months apart.

Vicious was allowed to leave prison on February 1st, after the completion of his detoxification program.

After arriving back in Manhattan, he met a friend named Peter Gravelle, whom he asked to source some heroin.

The musician's friends and family were so happy that he had been unexpectedly released on bail that they decided to celebrate by throwing a small dinner party.

That evening, the group gathered at an apartment in this building at 63 Bank Street. The apartment belonged to an aspiring actress named Michele Robison, whom Vicious had recently started dating.

Notably, Vicious' mother, Anne Beverley, was also present. Beverley was a longtime heroin addict who was so consumed by the drug that she reportedly showed very little interest in her son's life.

The group had spaghetti for dinner and drank a few beers. However, things changed for the worse after the bassist's friend, Gravelle, arrived with the heroin that he had been asked to get.

At that point, Vicious began shooting up.

Although he reportedly overdosed early in the night, the group managed to get him walking again before putting him to bed. His girlfriend, Robison, also allegedly gave him a number of quaaludes to help him sleep.

The following morning, Vicious was found dead in his girlfriend's bed.

He was only 21 years old.

Later, his mother revealed that she had discovered a suicide note in his pocket, which read:

"We had a death pact [referring to Nancy Spungen]. I have to keep my half of the bargain. Please bury me next to my baby. Bury me in my leather jacket, jeans, and motorcycle boots. Goodbye."

The veracity of this note is strengthened by a similar letter that he wrote to Nancy's mother, Deborah Spungen. According to Deborah, Vicious told her that he had promised to commit suicide if Nancy ever died.
