VICIOUS: TOO FAST TO LIVE explodes the public image of punk legend Sid Vicious. Written with the full co-operation of his late mother, the book charts Sid's story from his childhood to his final fix in New York, detailing his life before, during and after the Sex Pistols. The book also reveals, for the first time, what really happened in Sid and Nancy's Chelsea Hotel room in the early hours of October 12th 1978, when Nancy was found dead from a stab wound and Vicious arrested for murder. Complete with a discography, press cuttings and many rare photographs, VICIOUS: TOO FAST TO LIVE is the definitive and authorised biography of a true 20th century icon.
"If there's one thing I'm certain of, it's that Alan Parker has forgotten more about the Sex Pistols than most of us, if we're totally honest, could ever remember." -- Steve Jones, Sex Pistols
