Dyer brands Vicious 'useless'
The notorious bass player died from a heroin overdose aged 21 while on bail for the murder of his girlfriend Nancy Spungen.
He says, "The fascinating thing about Sid Vicious is he was useless. He was an idea, an image. He couldn't play a guitar or sing. He was called Vicious but he wasn't - he was a really sensitive soul.
"The only footage of him is onstage smothered in blood with a guitar in his hand. The only interviews he ever gave was when he was off his head. I think he is a mystery."
