The Day Sid Stabbed Nancy?
Vicious was the toast of New York's punk scene. The motorcycle jacket, the chains, the skinny heroin frame and that post-Elvis lip snarl had made Vicious the best-known of the anti-social Sex Pistols.

When a hotel worker went into Room 100 of the Chelsea Hotel he discovered a half-dressed, blood-covered body of a young woman lying on the floor, a deep wound in her stomach. The bed was also covered in blood. The hotel called an ambulance and police searched the room, discovering drugs, drug paraphernalia, a blood-stained hunting knife and Nancy's boyfriend Sid wandering the hallway in a state of confusion.
Sid's story of events was inconclusive. more on this story
