Bless him. Idiot.
It means he'll miss his Glastonbury booking...
thats good thinking
I read that as "amy winehouse is a cool man"
have been sent down for that long for possessing the amount of drugs he has
maybe this is for the best.
...he even showed up at all!
With his time keeping abilities.
At least now you won't be spending money on an empty stage for his upcoming gigs.
Bring back the old memories for him
Like Naomi Cambell used to, thus avoiding these embarassing incidents.
Cant wait to hear the stories about him and Blake fielder civil tearing it up on the inside.
And no im not talking about asses!
He'll have more drugs around him in prison than he does in his Wiltshire mansion. What a complete waste of time & taxpayers money...
I'm talking about the decision, not Doherty
"Who breaks a butterfly upon a wheel?"
Me for one. Stamp on the druggy cunt.
Post of the week -- and it's only Tuesday!
I can't believe people still pay to go see him. A complete and utter tool, if ever there was one.
He seemed to be keeping out of the papers recently. Unlike a couple of years ago where there was literally a new story every other day.
Good timing to go to prison!
conjured up an image of him cosing up next to the local murderers and undesirables, attempting to make new edgey friends by getting his guitar out for an impromtu jam then being repeatedly beaten with said instrument as they shout out "take that you junky talentless cunt". Shame it was just a day dream.
And a lot of idiots who don't know any better are prepared to indulge his delusion that he's a cross between Blake and Coleridge.
The smack is neither here nor there. Oh yes, he's got a doughy face and all.
and its the same for anyone else, you just dont hear about it. personally hes not really harming anyone else directly through the drug taking. indirectly maybe but thats a whole other issue.
If you had said what you just said there i wouldnt have a problem. But the way you said it previously was the constant 'oh if it was a normal person' thing which just isnt right.
cant you not see why i might think its your personal opinion?
a lot of people are really really really really fucking sick of hearing about him and resent him thusly - particularly as his 'talent', the thing that supposedly propelled him to this fame, is pretty debatable [i think there's a bit more widespread sympathy for amy winehouse, because whether or not you like the gal's songs, lady can seriously sing, you couldn't call her a waste of space]. one could blame the media but it's not like he hides from them. seems like he courts it pretty readily, which, given he's repeatedly breaking the law, comes across as arrogant.
I saw "oh no pete! :'(" in someone on my contacts msn personal message. They're now blocked.
Why is the NME's font so bloody huge? Sort it out!
in his own head Doherty is this elegant shabby chic hybrid of Oscar Wilde, Dylan Thomas and Ray Davies. In reality he is a hybrid of Steptoe (of Steptoe and Son fame) and Chas N Dave. The few reasonably hummable tunes he has made have been eclipsed by his own attempts to flush his (and those around him; Kate Moss?!) lives down the toilet cos shooting up (and being a scabby Junkie) is more important than being remembered for having a decent body of work. In short I think his drug taking is a studied attempt to be some kind of hard living rock legend therefore he is even more detestable as he is a fake.
but he hasn't done a lot with it recently.
When it comes to drugs he's clearly pretty stupid and it does seem (to many of us) that some of the quantities and variety of drugs he keeps getting caught with would have entitled ordinary folk to a stay in prison earlier than this. Perhaps he is caught up in a romantic vision of the tortured artist or whatever, who really knows. He hasn't come across like that in the interviews I've seen on tv, but maybe.
I can see why people would be tired of him and his perceived antics but the hate does puzzle me.
If you're going to hate people for being junky twats then there's an awful lot of cds you might want to put in the bin.
I can tell you that Pete is not the only person to have escaped prison after numerous offences.
This is because prisons...
a) do fuck all to help people with their addictions &
b) are at bursting point
I never thought I'd see such old school Daily Mail views on the DiS board. Comments like "scabby junkie" and "druggy cunt" are pretty disgraceful if you ask me.
Especially as most people on this site adore lots of musicians who have taken their fair share of Class As.
but those musicians have got the tunes to back it up and became famous fur the music first not the other way around.
presumably many of the people you work with are victims of circumstances and have had a lot of bad luck. Doherty comes across as someone who deliberately courts controversy and as I said he comes across as someone who has carefully constructed this image of being first and foremost all about drugs. Lots of my favourite musicians probably have and do take class As but they are more famous for their music and have the tunes to back it up.
I just don't like terms like "scabby junkie" or "druggy cunt".
but these terms weren't designed to put down the average joe trying to turn their lives around and are victims themselves but the waste of space i think Pete Doherty is.
an addiction is a thoroughly hellish thing to go through. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
Actually, that's a lie. I would wish it on my worst enemy. But that's because I'm a cunt.
many addicts actually try and help themselves/use the support provided to them once their problems are recognised by themselves and those around them. While it's fair to say that Doherty's made some steps in the right direction, he's not really done enough to prove that he's serious about kicking the habit and geting himself straight. The number of chances and warnings he's had over the past few years speaks for itself.
But people rarely get clean at the first attempt.
Anyway, I was just having a moan about how some people were using his addiction as a slur, that's all.
