Can't wear that swastika shirt around my Jewish friends, Sidney!! LOVE YA!! RIP

DEAD BOY.

GREAT STYLE. PURE PUNK. DIED MUCH TO YOUNG. I'm one of many who owned some of Sid's records and loved his image. I sort of learned later on that you gotta do your own thing and go your own way. You only get one LIFE. Do what ya like! I'm not gonna tell you what to do. HAVE FUN!! FUCK UP. LEARN. CREATE. ETC. You'll be DEAD one DAY. Don't rush it!!

SID YA FUCKIN RULE AND I REALIZE YOU WERE HEARTBROKEN AND A JUNKIE N YOUNG AND I SOMETIMES WONDER ABOUT -YOU-. WONDER WHAT YA WOULD'VE BECOME. SO YOUNG. RIP LOST SOUL. NANCY ALSO RIP. TRAGEDY. NO FUTURE.

Best to all punks LIVING fucked up lives or who can't fit into SOCIETY. Lo0sers since birth. What's new?
