Mick Jagger Praised By John Lydon For Paying Sid Vicious' Legal Fees

John Lydon, former fronter for the Sex Pistols, has praised Mick Jagger for paying the legal bills accumulated by Sid Vicious during the latter's murder trial in connection with the death of Nancy Spungen.

"Nancy was a hideous, awful person who killed herself because of the lifestyle - and led to the destruction and subsequent death of Sid and the whole fiasco," Lydon told the Daily Record.

He added that Jagger helped out while the Pistols' manager, Malcolm McLaren, sat on the sidelines.

"The only good news is that I heard Mick Jagger got in there and brought lawyers into it on Sid's behalf. I don't think Malcolm lifted a finger; he just didn't know what to do. For that, I have a good liking of Mick Jagger. There was activity behind the scenes from Mick so I applaud him. He never used it to advance himself publicity-wise," Lydon said.
