But alcohol, or whatever, is not the problem.
Sex Pistols tour of the American South. Seven shows, ten days. Coming at a time when The Pistols could have had huge sold out shows in major cities like New York and LA, manager Malcolm McClaren chose to book them in redneck dive bars throughout the deep South instead. His plan was to cause as much shit as he possibly could in a short amount of time. He achieved that, in spades. Early in the tour, Vicious wandered off looking for drugs. He was found in a hospital, having carved the words Gimme a fix in his chest with a razor.

He was admitted to hospital later that night to treat various injuries. Offstage he is said to have kicked a female photographer, attacked a security guard, and eventually challenged one of his own bodyguards to a fight.
