John Lennon, Paul Mcartney, George Harrison, Ring Starr, Noel Gallagher, Liam Gallagher, Jarvis Cocker, John Squire, Ian Brown, Mani, Reni.
To name a few. All of these artists have taken many drugs and haven't been bugged by the media (with the exception of Jarvis).
What do you think the song Cold Turkey is about? Thankgiving dinner gone wrong! Hell no! It's about Lennon trying to deal with his Heroin addiction. Lennon took many drugs but people remember him for the music he created not for the things he did. Yes, I think Pete should get off the drugs but it's his life. If he want's to take heroin, he's allowed to!
i agree with the article. i believe that his drug addiction in time will pass and he will get on with his life.
Pete is probably the most talented poet, songwriter alive.... now that said he does have a drink/drug problem whcih breaks my heart to see, he more than likely will be dead within the year! but in his twisted mind it probably all adds up...... and who are we to argue with that? Go to the other end of the spectrum and support a bunch of clowns? at least he wears it on his sleave!!! msg me if you want to talk more about it?!?!
i love him lol. his lyrics are the stuff of genius, though i think he was better and happier performing with carl. i would love to see them back together as i think thats where the real magic lies.
Hi just 2 let u all no. I love pete Doherty no matter what people say about him. All he needz 2 do iz sort out his Drug Habbits then itll be fine then people cant call him. People just leave him alone coz hes a nice guy o.k and leave Kate alone about the cocaine thing.
why is it a drug problem? he doesnt have a problem with what he does. its nobody elses business to have a problem with what he does. he is a well educated adult who has been around drugs long enough to know the dangers. he is a rational adult making an informed adult choice. to take drugs. if he choses to do drugs that is his choice and not for the shallow media obsessed public to judge him for. let the man live his own life and let his music speak for itself.
I completely understand what you are talking about. People like us can see through the facade of drugs which he has a problem with, and can see how truly inspirational, intellectual, poetical and musical he really is. I find it immensely annoying when people say:
'I hate Pete Doherty. He is a heroin addict'.
I luv Pete and I always have. He's a legend. I cannot live without my Libertines and Babyshambles cd's. Maybe the press should just butt out. Most people take drugs at sometime. He's still an amazing man
I think Pete Doherty is a idiot. Plain and simple: An idiot.
I think his musical talent is different and amazing I listen to his work from Babyshambles and the Libertines every day. Not everyones perfect. Shame he is over shadowing his success with his drug problems though
