One of the many images I captured during the Sex Pistols Across America tour. Three weeks on tour with the Pistols during their first tour to America. The American press were hailing the band as the new British Invasion and calling the Pistols the anti-Beatles, but that was nothing compared to the British press who followed the band over. The British tabloid press knows no limits: they will do whatever it takes to get the story. I had an all-access pass, the only stipulation was that I could not let the British press know where the band was. So on the way to rehearsals I would have to sneak out of the hotel, jump into a taxi, and then tell the taxi driver to lose anyone following us. Shades of Raymond Chandler. The last day of the tour, I was leaving the hotel and in a far corner of the lobby, Sid was on the floor in the corner sleeping it off. -- Richard E.
