Drugs and alcohol are what today’s generation want. But have you ever wondered what would happen if drug, alcohol, love and relationships were all combined?
Read the love stories of Jim and Pamela, and Sid and Nancy.
The Poet and his Muse Jim Morrison and Pamela Courson
Unconditional love, drugs and alcohol, never ending infidelity, insanity; these are the basic characteristics of Jim and Pam’s relationship.
If only the two love birds knew what lay ahead, they probably would have never met each other at one of his early performances.
She cherished his latent talent of poetic creativity, and like any dutiful lover, encouraged him to pursue it.
It started out like a fairytale love story, but an increase in wealth and fame led to turbulence in their seemingly tranquil relationship.
Her fascination and adoration for his fiery personality continued, while he guided her into the realm of false realities and delusions. As alcohol and drugs continued to cloud their minds, and fog their eyes to keep them away from reality; disloyalty and betrayal were becoming more and more common from both of them comprising the rollercoaster bond.
But Pam was always going to be his girl, his eternal love, and despite splits and periods of separation, he would always go back crawling into her arms. Their violent tendencies towards each other were some kind of a joke to Jim, while she just sobbed uncontrollably after such unfortunate yet repetitive happenings.
Heated arguments over their open relationship often led to Pam throwing crockery at his face, trying to wipe that smirk he was carrying around all the time due to the variety of influences which were in possession of him.
Erratic behavioral patterns from both of them resulted in Jim putting himself in grave danger on multiple occasions, but with the smile of a five year who has just been given a candy.
Their story is like a modern day Shakespearean tragedy, proving that living a life of unchecked hedonism, and excess, results in an infinite storm circling you constantly.
Their stormy relation came to an abrupt halt, when she discovered him dead in his bathtub, still with a smile on his face. Eventually, heroine entered her life and veins, and an “accidental” overdose of the intravenous drug resulted in her demise as well.
Love Kills Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen
Sex, heroine, and destructive love: just about sums up their torrid love hate relationship.
A classic example of why associating with the wrong people can lead to your downfall.
Unlike Jim and Pam’s relationship, Sid and Nancy were always faithful to each other. Obsessed with the punk rock culture, as well as the power and image that the infamous band “The Sex Pistols” portrayed, Sid was a self proclaimed punk rocker and “the biggest fan of the sex pistols”.
Impressed by his attitude and punk image, he was asked to be the bass player of the band, despite having no musical talent whatsoever.
Enter Nancy, a junkie stripper, born in America, living in England.
She introduced the gullible bassist to the world of heroine, and the false promises it held.
Their unstable behavior was a cause of concern for the band, and the drug induced haze in which they were always found to be in, led to the deterioration of the band.
Before she entered his life, Sid was a hard worker, trying his best to learn the instrument he was supposed to play (it was indeed a good period).
She was thick skinned, and everyone could see through her except Sid. She was the mother, and he was her child. She was his ardent fan, and her desire to bed a sex pistol came true. But he paid for it heavily. Their reckless activities eventually led to the band to break up, and his solo career with Nancy as his acting manager was a failed endeavor as well.
Her murder is still unsolved, but his death due to a heroine overdose was not appalling.
