Well, I think Bodies, Holidays in the Sun and Pretty Vacant are great songs, but it ends there. The part I never really get is how big they are with, just that one album. I also never understood, how Sid was so sensationalized, after being on what, one song on that album? It just always seemed to me, he was only copying Dee Dee, Thunders, etc. Yes, the whole murder accusation made the Sid persona more sensationalized, but still. I will admit, I was not there, and I guess at this point I have pledged myself to the ramones, the stooges, even the dolls too much, and maybe all their rantings about how the pistols ruined any chance for them at U.S. success has brainwashed me.
Yes, and I see I concentrated on Vicious, because it seems to me more people would recognize the name Sid Vicious, before they would recognize the name Johnny Rotten? I may be mistaken, and I guess he was quite different from Johansen, Ramone, Pop, etc? He was original there, but I still, personally don't get their music. A few songs were good, but give me anything off the first 5 Ramones records, and I'd never need to listen to the Pistols again. (hmmm, sounds funny, cause I have everything off the first 5 ramones albums, so I guess I just said it in public, now I can never listen to the pistols again.)
