Rockers who've done hard time

Here are some rockers who've done time in jail
Mick Jagger
-Surprised? I'm not
-Jail time or arrests come naturally to members of the Rolling Stones as their good music does. Mick Jagger's most famous arrest was in 1967, after his arrest at Keith Richards' house in Redlands for possession of drugs. Mick was sentenced to 3 months in Brixton Prison and while there, wrote "2,000 Light Years Away"
Tommy Lee
-Surprised? [snickering]
-In 1998, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee was arrested for domestic abuse after he hit his then wife Pamela Anderson
Paul McCartney
-In Jan. 1980, he headed to Japan as a stop on his tour with band Wings, but was stopped in Tokyo when customs officials found half a pound of marijuana in his luggage
Ozzy Osbourne
-Not really surprised with him
-He's been arrested for numerous things. His first arrest was in 1965, when he was in his teens and still known as John Osbourne, his real name. He spent 7 weeks in a Birmingham prison for failing to pay fines for a burglary conviction and then later on in 1989 was in jail for, while drunk, attempting to kill then wife Sharon by strangulation. Also to add, on Feb. 19, 1982, he was drunk and urinated on the Alamo Cenotaph, which honors the Texans who died at the Battle of the Alamo
Keith Richards
-There he is, Mr. Nothing-Can-Kill-Me
-Most famous arrest? The same one that put Mick Jagger behind bars. Possession of drugs at his Redlands house
Sid Vicious
-Was the bass player for The Sex Pistols. When his girlfriend Nancy Spungen was found dead from stab wounds in the hotel room they shared, naturally he was the first suspect. He then died from a lethal overdose of heroin
