Hmm.. just to keep this blog alive!! :)

1. connect!

2.X born Simon John Ritchie;was an English musician best known as the bassist of the influential band Y.
On 22 November 1978, X was arrested and charged with murder of his Girl Friend. X said they had fought that night but gave conflicting versions of what happened next, saying "I stabbed her, but I didn't mean to kill her", then saying he didn't remember and at one point arguing she had fallen onto the knife.
3 Months after this he died of a Heroin overdose.

X and Y ?

3.In 1972, the Nixon Administration tried to have X deported from the US, as Richard Nixon believed that X's support for George McGovern could cost him re-election. Republican Senator Strom Thurmond suggested, in a February 1972 memo, that "deportation would be a strategic counter-measure" against X. While his deportation battle continued, X appeared at rallies and on TV shows, including a week hosting the Mike Douglas Show in February 1972, where Jerry Rubin and Bobby Seale appeared as his guests.

On 23 March 1973, X was ordered to leave the US within 60 days, while his wife was granted permanent residence. In response, X and his wife held a press conference at the New York chapter of the American Bar Association on 1 April 1973 to announce the formation of the conceptual state of "Nutopia"; a place with "no land, no boundaries, no passports, only people", and all of its inhabitants would be ambassadors. The X's asked for political asylum in the US while waving the white flag of Nutopia; two white handkerchiefs. In June 1973, X and his wife made their last political statement by attending the Watergate hearings in Washington, D.C.

X's order of deportation was overturned in 1975.

In 1976, X's US immigration status was finally resolved favourably, and he received his green card. Nixon's successor, Gerald Ford, showed little interest in continuing the battle. When Jimmy Carter was inaugurated as president on 19 January 1977, X and his wife attended the Inaugural Ball.
