Celebrities Are No Strangers to Hotel Debauchery

Moss can't seem to escape the hotel drama. This past winter, her on-again, off-again boyfriend, British singer Pete Doherty, found his own hotel troubles. The former singer for the Libertines was arrested in February after getting into a fight in a London hotel. The assault charges have since been dropped.

Morbid End: New York's Chelsea Hotel has played home to a long list of actors, artists and musicians who took up residence in its famed halls. The spot may be most notorious for a 1978 incident. Punk rock's Sex Pistol's bassist Sid Vicious reportedly dealt his girlfriend, Nancy Spungeon, a fatal stab wound in the hotel bathroom.

Rock's Legacy: Possibly the most notorious hotel crashers of all time are the rock stars. Trotting from city to city to the delight of their fans, rock stars are generally expected to party hard and shake things up a bit. From The Who in the 1970s and later to Slayer and Motley Crue in the 1980s, big guitar solos and slamming drums were just part of how these guys became famous for blowing off steam. They all also built names for themselves for their raucous behavior, which included trashing hotel rooms while on the road. It's a wonder some of these stars can still find a home out on the road.
