Former Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon was forced to cancel a series of media interviews after a heavy night out in Dundee.
The punk icon had held a question and answer session at the Whitehall Theatre on Thursday, before hitting the town.
The following day, during a performance with his band Public Image Ltd at Church, Lydon – aka Johnny Rotten – was seen swigging from a bottle of whisky and told the crowd he needed to “steady the ship” after the previous night’s drinking session.
On stage, he said: “I stayed up late last night and look what it did to me.”
He had earlier cancelled a series of broadcast media interviews after only making it back to his hotel in Carnoustie in the early hours of Friday.
Dundee has a special place in punk history. The Sex Pistols played at Dundee Tech College union in October 1976, days after signing with EMI Records.
A second gig at Caird Hall was booked but was cancelled in favour of the band’s now infamous appearance on Thames Today with Bill Grundy.
