Deborah Spungen. Deborah Spungen, in her book, describes life with Nancy as very difficult, and expressed incredible grief, but a bit of a release, at Nancy's death. Hope that you enjoyed this tribute to the Sex Pistols.
"And I Don't Want to Live This Life". "And I Don't Want to Live This Life" is the story of Nancy, told by her mother. The title was taken from a poem Sid Vicious wrote about her afer her death: "You were my little baby girl/And I knew all your fears/Such joy to hold you in my arms/And kiss away your tears/But now you're gone/There's only pain/And nothing I can do/And I don't want to live this life/If I can't live for you." The direct quote came from the book entitled 'And I Don't Want To Live This Life' written by Deborah Spungen and from www.celebritystorm.com

Paul Cook and Steve Jones. Paul Cook and Steve Jones were on better speaking terms with Sid Vicious than Johnny Rotten after the band's break up. Though not as famous as Johnny and Sid, they were a driving influence behind the band and an important part of the Sex Pistols--they were the ones who started the band.
