sort it out, mate.
once again, twat is the word that springs to mind.
fucking kill someone if he keeps driving 'under the influence' of drugs> If it's himself, he'll be called a rock martyr, if it's someone else at least it'll put him and his drugs in prison, fucking disgrace.
I really hope someone else doesn't have to die for this tosser
It must be dead easy being a copper - you just wait outside Doherty's latest crack house and nick him on the way in or way out. They should simply lock the useless junkie fucker up - as I understand it, prison is full of smack, so he'll be happy and everyone else will be rid of him.
so the bassist and the replacement drummer just turned up and played?
the money for the drugs ?
Not with the sales of the Babyshambles album !
if we stop talking about him, do you think he will go away?
he'll try to do something even more outrageous.
He knows that his band can't really get that much press attention based on their musical attributes, so he has to find another way.
I just don't agree with the driving under the influence stuff.
He is a dick.
how he gets away with it? or any celebrtiry known to takedrugs.... does the law not apply to him???
the flippant answer would be (as stated in the article) he's on 'unconditional bail' - maybe it's like a period of time before you go to jail when they let you do whatever the fuck you want.
or seriously - don't drug users who aren't famous 'get away with it' as well. You know, they steal stuff to fund their habit so they get put on curfews and probation and sometimes get sectioned because putting them in jail doesn't stop them - usually makes them worse.
it is a ridiculously difficult area of law and sentencing - it is a total risk to give a Community Rehabilitation Order as it doesn't really work and they go back to offending pretty quickly. And the availability of drugs in prison only increases addictions and offending on release.
But I'm mainly talking about your bottom of the ladder heroin user, not one who is in a reasonably successful band. I assume his driving licence had already been taken as he always seems to get arrested when driving
hopefully he'll be making sure he doesn't drop the soap in the showers.
i mean, i know in prison a fella is deprived of ladies to make the sex with...
but pete doherty?
dude looks like one of the wheelers in Return To Oz. freaky shit.
reminds me of when you used to put the DK Mode cheat on Goldeneye on the N64
and he colours in each london borough as he gets arrested in it.
my favourite bit of that NME article is the bit about he was meant to play in Austria, but obviously wasn't there, and how it says the band "had to perform a short set without their frontman".
what fucking band? the guitarist quit, leaving the bassist and drummer - what did they do, play some fucking DFA1979 / Lightning Bolt covers?
Also, why the hell would the rest of the band travel to Austria unless they had Pete bound and gagged in his seat on the plane next to them? How deluded must you be to think "oh, Pete's not with us, but I'm sure he'll be there on time"?
must also be deluded if they think people are there to see them and not just Pete. I bet you could smell the dissapointment in the crowd.
Is this a new drug ?
Lightning bolt, no way! They would have never heard of something that underground.
More like playing some white stripes covers!!!
