MY WAY - Thanks Sid!!!

Several artists have crossed the line and brought about great changes in music as well as our attitudes. The Beatles, Elvis, Nirvana, and even the Tupac Shakur. However, the one I think caused the most stir and almost single hand brought punk rock close to main stream was Sid Vicious. His talent wasn't great and his singing lacked so much that he wasn't even the lead man in the Sex Pistols. However his character and this take charge attitude came through on the song MY WAY. I have attached the video click for those of you who might have never seen Sid Vicious perform. The star that he build was short lived as so often happens with people are not ready to become this famous. However the testament to his legend lives on as I still see young people wearing SID VICIOUS shirts and listening to the music. I really hate that Sid Vicious was the face of Punk Rock because so many other great bands and artist came out of that genre. Watch the clip and then do some research into other great punk bands. The Sex Pistols were the main band but so many others such as The Dead Kennedys, The Meat Puppets, Generation X, make awesome music. Well enjoy the clip and do some slam dancing if you like.
