Pete Doherty

What happened like. Not a fan myself, but he’s always come across like a nice person, heroin use aside.
First time I met him, he turned up at the studio in the middle of the night when he wasn't even recording with us at the time, absolutely off his face, holding a broken acoustic guitar and asking us to fix it for him (for free I might add), before driving his car off, still wasted. I found out later that was the same day he'd been in court and banned from driving iirc. (It's possible I could be combing two separate memories there).

The next time was when he was in recording with Babyshambles. I was told that every time he and one of his bandmates went to the bog, I had to go in after them and clean up their drug detritus. (Totally why I became a technical engineer). Each time, the bogs absolutely fucking stank of blood and chemicals, and I had to pick up mountains of blood-soaked bogroll and burnt tinfoil, never knowing if there was a used needle hidden inside or not. Absolute cunt's trick. Nowt against him sticking drugs in his arm but fucking clean up after yourself and don't leave the communal bogs stinking of smack and blood.

Awful that mate. Truly awful.

I like his music personally. I've seen him play with The Libertines a couple of times and he's always been good, and he was excellent when I saw him play as Peter Doherty around 18 months ago in Stockholm. I'm sure he's an utter cock as a bloke though.

Sadly, I think a percentage of his fan base like him for this lifestyle. The same people that label him a ‘troubled genius’

He was a smack head, a burglar and a complete arsehole.
