He is the former front man of 'The Libertines' and current front man of 'Babyshambles'. He is also working on a project with 'The Littl'ans'.
Pete Doherty is most famous for -
- His on going battle with Heroin and Crack Cocaine.
- Going out with Supermodel Kate Moss and having a turbulent relationship with her.
- Being kicked out of The Libertines.
People see Pete Doherty as a drug addled modern rock star that gives sloppy stage performances and is one of the tabloids most talked about.
Yes parts of that are true, but Pete Doherty is an influential songwriter, extremely clever and passionate about what he does. He just needs to sort himself out.
It makes me sad how people now only go and see him perform because they believe it will be like a Kurt Cobain scenario all over again.
If he does self-destruct then it will cause a huge void in the music industry. Rock music needs Pete Doherty.
