Odeon Entertainment and MVD Visual will release the new 80 minute doc, "Sid! - By Those Who Really Knew Him" on November 17th.

The new package is the first intimate full-length documentary on the life of 'Sid Vicious', 30 years since his death from a heroin overdose at the age of 21, charting the fall and rise of the "Sex Pistols" guitarist from punk hero to cultural icon.

Sid's controversial life is profiled with interviews from Jah Wobble (childhood friend, founder "PIL"), Steve Severin ("Siouxsie and the Banshees"), David Vanian ("The Damned"), Malcolm McLaren ("Sex Pistols" Manager), Viv Albertine ("The Slits"), Ron Watts ("100 Club"), Glen Matlock ("Sex Pistols"), Rat Scabies ("The Damned"), Caroline Coon (Writer/Artist), Vivienne Westwood (Designer), Marco Pirroni ("Adam & The Ants"), John Tiberi ("Sex Pistols" Tour Manager), and a whole lot more.

"...Featuring previously unseen archive footage and filmed in HD, this new documentary provides the most definitive and intimate life story of the punk hero who truly lived his life with chaos and anarchy. Fuelled with a soundtrack of Sid's own music, this is the faithful telling of Sid's life story by those who really knew him..."

In addition to the DVD documentary, this special collector's edition includes a 10 track CD of Sid live in New York and a biography booklet profile by best-selling music author Mark Paytress.
