September 2, 2008: "Pete Doherty Overdoses, Nearly Dies..."

Pete Doherty "died" and had to be revived after a suspected drugs overdose. The Babyshambles frontman was treated by medics after his heart stopped beating following an alleged drugs binge.

Despite his near death experience, Pete did perform at porn cinema NonStop in Graz, Austria, four hours late last Thursday.

Playing down the event, Pete, 29, said: "There was some minor problem but it's a secret. Nothing bad though - I'm still alive."

Paramedics were called to the farmhouse of Pete's promoter Bettina Aichbauer where the troubled singer was staying, after he passed out and failed to regain consciousness.

The rocker reportedly refused to be taken to hospital for more treatment, and went on to play a 45-minute set.

September 1, 2008: "Pete Doherty Cries After He Missing A Flight"

Pete Doherty started "crying" after he missed a flight. The Babyshambles frontman - who was forced to pull out of the FM4 Frequency Festival in Salzburg, Austria, last month after arriving late for his flight from the U.K. - has revealed an argument with airline staff left him in an emotional state.

He said: "I informed British Airways of my late arrival. I told them I was a kind of a minor celebrity and I might get a bit of hassle at the airport. Turns out they are complete a***holes. Even when I fell over and badly creased my hat, I had no assistance."

"I was crying but I didn't want them to see. A cynic might say I missed the plane, an honest man might say I went to the airport a little late."

Pete's Babyshambles bandmates Adam Ficek, Drew McConnell and Mik Whitnall also pulled out of the show following the singer's non-appearance.

Drummer Adam released a statement saying: "Drew, Mik and myself can only apologize to those who came to see us today. Peter has missed the flight, we are in Salzburg, with no Peter. We will head to the festival and apologize on stage. Adam."

Pete Doherty's new girlfriend has been ordered to attend therapy sessions by her parents.

Matilda Thomas, 18, has been told to see a counselor because her troubled lover's apparent bad influence has sent her into an alcohol-fueled downward spiral.

She said: "My mom made me attend alcohol counseling because I started drinking so much."

"Pete drinks a lot and I feel like I have to keep up, but it's hard."

Matilda was called by Pete at 1 a.m. on Thursday morning to attend his impromptu show at London's Jazz After Dark club.

She added to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "He is amazing. I didn't even put on my shorts because I didn't want to be late."

The 29-year-old hellraiser turned up at 3.15am wearing a cape and top hat. He had previously failed to show at a scheduled DJ set at nightclub Punk.

Earlier this month, the Babyshambles frontman was seen with ex-girlfriend Portia Freeman.

August 4, 2008: "Pete Doherty Rescued By A Scottish Loch"

Pete Doherty had to be rescued from a Scottish loch yesterday.

The Babyshambles star was trying to get to the VIP section at Scotland's Live at Loch Lomond music festival when the rowing boat he was in sprang a nleak and began to sink.

Pete's manager, Adrian Hunter - who was also in the vessel - said: "It was freezing and we had a laugh but it wouldn't have been funny if someone had died."

A luxury speedboat was available to help ferry the band to the VIP area, but Pete decided to arrange his own travel.

Hunter added to Scotland's Daily Record newspaper: "We were waiting for the official boat when we saw this old guy with a rowing boat and decided to take that instead. It was more fun."

"Halfway to shore we lost an oar so the boat was drifting to the other side, but we didn't really mind."

"Then we realized it had sprung a leak and water was coming in fast. We were about 30 meters from shore - it was really cold and the water was very deep. Pete kept our hopes up by singing sea shanties."

August 2, 2008: " Pete Doherty is Inspiring"

Madonnas hubby Guy Ritchie is admitting that a character from his new film RocknRolla is actually based on the troubled rocker. In the film, a painting falls into the hands of rock star Johnny Story, the problematic musician inspired by Pete. Hes hiding out in a crack den after being declared dead and finds himself caught in the middle of a battle between the Russian mob and the London underworld. Guy said At the time I was writing it, Pete Doherty was everywhere. Its either genius marketing or a happy - or unhappy - accident. Its creative self-destruction in the sense that hes doing it creatively.

July 16, 2008: "Pete Doherty Performs At Young Fan's Wake on Tuesday"

Pete Doherty performed at a young fan's wake yesterday.

The Babyshambles frontman played in tribute to 16-year-old Daniel Squires, who formed a friendship with the rocker after being diagnosed with bone cancer.

Pete spent time with the teenager's family before taking to the stage and performing an emotional tribute alongside one of Daniel's friends. The wake was held at a pub in South Tyneside, North England.

Pub manager Lynette Gale said: "He said he wanted to come up as a tribute and it's such a lovely gesture. It was special. It went very well, there were a lot of people here. He was on the stage at the back of the pub and everyone was crowding around him."

Daniel had originally drawn up a list of stars he wanted to meet after he was diagnosed with bone cancer.

After his first meeting with Pete, Daniel said: "Pete and the band have just been absolutely amazing and hopefully I will be able to stay well enough to see them play again."

Daniel's father Mark said: "Pete invited Daniel to a concert in Bristol and dedicated a song to him. Another time, there was a fundraising show in London for the charity Teenage Kicks. Although Babyshambles were touring Europe and not booked to appear, they flew back for the concert and asked organizers if they could do a set which they dedicated to Daniel. Pete also gave him his mobile phone number and told Daniel to ring him if he ever needed anything."

June 11, 2008: "Pete Doherty Thinks He's Jesus"

Pete Doherty commissioned a sculpture of himself being crucified Jesus-style. Apparently, Pete Doherty and his friend artist Nick Reynolds feel Pete is a tortured Messiah, according to The Sun:

"The disturbing artwork will be carved in marble and show Doherty being tortured, surrounded by strips of newspapers symbolising his crucifixion by the media. Reynolds insists he came up with the idea a long time ago and it has taken three years to come to fruition."

The Sun received behind-the-scenes photos of the sculpting process from Pete and the irony wasn't lost on them:

"Unfortunately Pete looks more like Han Solo when he is in his carbon coffin in Jabbas Palace in Star Wars than Michaelangelos David.
The exclusive behind-the-scenes pictures above of Petes plaster session were given to me for a bit of publicity. Er, just a minute. Any slight contradiction here, Mr Doherty?"

June 10, 2008: "Pete Doherty Running Out Of Cash"

Pete Doherty is running out of money. Pete Doherty has reportedly been holding crisis talks with his band Babyshambles and their management to find out where the group's cash is going.

Pete Doherty, 29, said: "I've got a few concerns at the moment over issues with management - where the money has been going and distribution of wealth. Babyshambles need to sit down as a band and talk about the future. After two years of a**ing about, we could actually make money out of this job."

There could be other troubles on the horizon for the band though, as guitarist Mick Whitnall, 39, is apparently planning to quit, as he is tired of Pete Doherty's wild lifestyle.

Pete Doherty is spending his time in jail, getting as much smack as he can handle and living in fear of being bashed and made to pick up the soap.

Now, it is reported that he has taken to reading the Koran and has turned to Islam to help him cope. A source said, Hes been reading the Koran since he went into segregation. Hes got a lot of Muslim friends and theyve been on at him for ages to study it. Now hes on his own hes got time on his hands to study it.

Pete Doherty biography (bio):
Peter Doherty is an English musician, artist and poet. He is currently the singer and songwriter of the band Babyshambles, however is best known musically for his work with The Libertines, alongside Carl Barat. Since 2005, he has become more prominant in the public eye as a result of his relationship with supermodel Kate Moss. His drug use, arrests, and court appearances are frequently reported in the tabloid press.

Early life:
Peter Doherty was born in Hexham, Northumberland, England, the son of Jacqueline (Michels), who was of paternal Jewish descent, and Peter John Doherty, who was of Irish descent. He grew up at a number of army garrisons, due to his father's work as an officer in the British Army, living at various times at garrisons in Catterick, Belfast, Germany, Bedworth, Dorset and Larnaca, along with his mother, a nurse, and two sisters, Amy Jo and Emily. Doherty was the second of the three children. He was academically successful, achieving 5 grade A* and 6 grade A GCSEs, at Nicholas Chamberlaine Comprehensive School in Bedworth (this has erroneously been reported as 11 grade A*s) and four passes at A Level, two at grade A. At the age of 16, he won a poetry competition and embarked on a tour of Russia organised by the British Council.
After his A-levels, he moved to his grandmother's flat in London, where he said he felt 'destined' to be, and got a job filling graves in Willesden Cemetery, although most of his time was spent reading and writing while sitting on gravestones.
He attended Queen Mary, part of the University of London, to study English literature, but left the course after his first year.
After leaving university, he moved into a London flat with his friend and fellow musician Carl Bart, who had been a classmate of Doherty's older sister at Brunel University.
Doherty was voted to be joint #1 in alternative music magazine NME's 2004 Cool List, along with fellow Libertine Carl Bart. The following year he was placed at #6, and on May 10, 2006 was voted #2 in their poll depicting 50 of rock's greatest heroes.

Career:

The Libertines:
Doherty and Bart formed a band called The Libertines in the late 90s, although it was not until 2002, with the release of their debut album Up the Bracket, that they began to achieve widespread mainstream success.
The group achieved critical and commercial success and gained a dedicated cult following, with Doherty in particular being praised by fans and critics alike as one of the most promising songwriters to emerge on the British music scene for some time. However, Doherty's increasing drug problems led to his estrangement from the band. In 2003, he was jailed for burgling Bart's flat.
The two initially fell out over this incident, but made amends whilst Doherty was in prison. He was originally sentenced to 6 months, but his sentence was cut to 2 months on appeal with the judge commenting "We feel that a custodial sentence was justified in this case but sufficient credit was not given for his timely plea of guilty which it should have been. We have reduced his sentence to two months which will allow for his almost immediate release." Upon his release, Doherty immediately reunited with Carl and the rest of the band to play a gig in the Tap 'n' Tin pub in Chatham, Kent.
Following his rejoining of the band, Doherty sought treatment for his drug addiction. He attended the alternative detox centre Wat Tham Krabok, a temple in Thailand, famous for its rehabilitation program for crack and heroin users, where he was beaten with a bamboo cane and forced to drink foul herbal concoctions to induce vomiting. He left after three days and returned to England. As a consequence of this, The Libertines cancelled appearances that they were due to make at the Isle Of Wight and Glastonbury festivals.
However, while post-production work was taking place on the second Libertines album (also called The Libertines) in June 2004, he was again asked to leave the band. The band cited Doherty's continuing drug addiction as the reason for his dismissal, but emphasized their willingness to take him back once he had addressed his addiction. Although Bart had previously stated that the Libertines were merely on hiatus, pending Doherty's recovery, the group effectively disbanded with Doherty's departure at the end of 2004. All members are now involved in other projects (see Yeti and Dirty Pretty Things).
On April 12, 2007, Pete Doherty and Carl Bart played 13 songs together at the second of Doherty's "An Evening with Pete Doherty" gigs at the Hackney Empire, London.[16] The reunited Libertines played 'What A Waster', 'Death On The Stairs', 'The Good Old Days', 'What Katie Did', 'Dilly Boys', 'Seven Deadly Sins', 'France', 'Tell The King', 'Don't Look Back Into The Sun', 'Dream A Little Dream Of Me', 'Time For Heroes', 'Albion' and 'The Delaney'.

Collaborations:
Prior to the disbanding of The Libertines, Doherty collaborated with local poet Wolfman. Together they recorded the single "For Lovers", which entered the top 10, charting at number 7, in April of the same year. Despite the success of the single, which was nominated for a prestigious Ivor Novello Award for songwriting, Doherty and Wolfman received relatively little money, having already sold the publishing rights for a small sum in a pub.
Later in 2004 Doherty, provided guest vocals to the song "Down to the Underground" by the British group Client. The song was released in June 2004 as a B-side to the groups single "In It for the Money" and appears on their second album City.
In 2005 Doherty collaborated with the British rock band Littl'ans on the single "Their Way".
In 2006, Doherty was featured on the charity single "Janie Jones", which was released to raise funds for Strummerville. A number of artists and bands, such as Dirty Pretty Things, We Are Scientists, The Kooks and The Holloways also featured on the track.
In August 2006 it was announced that Doherty was recording with The Streets frontman Mike Skinner on a new version of "Prangin' Out", from Skinner's latest album.

Babyshambles:
Doherty founded Babyshambles towards the end of his time with the Libertines. The group has released one album, Down in Albion, in November 2005, and their second single, "Fuck Forever", reached #4 on the UK singles chart. The band's touring schedule and releases have occasionally been disrupted by Doherty's ongoing legal problems. During this time, he began a relationship with supermodel Kate Moss. On Down in Albion, Kate Moss sings backing vocals on "La Belle et la Bte". The line-up of the band has changed several times: drummer Gemma Clarke left the band due to Doherty's drug problems and was replaced by Adam Ficek, and guitarist and co-songwriter Patrick Walden has also left the band on at least one occasion before returning intermittently. Fellow British rock group Oasis had booked Babyshambles to support them on their UK tour in 2005. However, Doherty was attending the birthday celebration of fashion designer Hedi Slimane with Kate Moss and the band's spokesman claimed that he was unable to arrange transport back to the UK in time for the band's first appearance. As a consequence Oasis cancelled Babyshambles' support for the rest of the tour. In August 2006, Babyshambles signed up with major record label Parlophone, on which they released The Blinding EP on 9th December 2006 to good critical acclaim. In January 2007, they have signed a long term record deal with Parlophone.

Guerrilla gigs, writing and solo work:
Doherty has recently been rumoured to be working on new acoustic material, similar to the wealth of his unreleased songs that can already be downloaded on the internet. On his own, and often with his band, he has continued the Libertines' tradition of performing short notice guerrilla gigs in small venues. On New Year's Eve 2005, Doherty held a guerrilla gig in his North London flat where he showcased some of his solo works, many of which later leaked onto the internet. 31 March and 1 April 2006 Doherty was performing two surprising solo gigs, his first in Mainland Europe, at the NonStop Kino pornographic cinema and venue in Graz, Austria, after he failed to turn up for an earlier arrangement in January. For this occasion, he produced, at the suggestion of Bettina Aichbauer, friend of Doherty and owner of the NonStop Kino, a film with the title Spew It Out Your Soul which he showed on screen during his performance.
Doherty has announced that he has signed a deal to publish his journals, in which he has recorded poetry, drawings, and photos over the course of his career, with Orion books. Most of Doherty's journals are freely available on the internet. The book is due out in June 2007.

Modeling:
Following in the footsteps of model ex-fiance Kate Moss, Doherty has become the current face of Roberto Cavalli's Fall 2007/2008 fashion advertising campaign. The photos have gained praise for depicting a much cleaner and more handsome Doherty. The 50's-style photographs are also being compared to the late Marlon Brando.

Controversies and legal troubles:
Doherty is frequently in the news for his problematic lifestyle and drug habits. The influence of drugs on his life had already reached such an intensity at times, that in his younger days, Doherty worked as a prostitute to pay for his drug habit.
He has been arrested many times, usually for drug possession, and sometimes for other offences arising from drug misuse, such as driving under the influence and driving with a suspended licence.

Influences:
In interviews, Doherty has listed his favourite books as George Orwell's 1984, Brighton Rock by Graham Greene, Our Lady of the Flowers by Jean Genet, Flowers of Evil by Charles Baudelaire and the complete works of Oscar Wilde. He has also mentioned Emily Dickinson and Tony Hancock as influences; Doherty and his father were once members of the Tony Hancock Appreciation Society. Doherty mentions Hancock, and makes an allusion to his famous phrase 'Stone me!', in an early song entitled "You're My Waterloo". However numerous literary and musical allusions occur throughout Doherty's ongoing Books of Albion. He places particular importance on the Romantic poets and on existential philosophers such as Albert Camus and Miguel de Unamuno. Doherty has also alluded to work by the Marquis de Sade and Thomas De Quincey. On the Babyshambles album Down in Albion, there is a track entitled "A Rebours", which is significantly influenced by the novel of the same name by Joris-Karl Huysmans. His favourite films include British films of the 1960s and seventies such as Billy Liar, Poor Cow, O Lucky Man! and the film versions of Steptoe and Son. He cites Lee Mavers of The La's as a musical influence, as well as The Only Ones, New York Dolls, The Stooges, and Buzzcocks. He is particularly fond of The Smiths and The Clash.
Doherty and Carl Barat are fond of Cockney musicians Chas & Dave. Doherty has also supported up-and-coming British bands, such as indie band The Paddingtons.
Doherty is also known to be a devoted follower of Queen's Park Rangers football club. As a youth he wrote a fanzine, entitled "All Quiet On The Western Avenue." He sold copies of the fanzine on the club's grounds, however its mixture of literary references, quotes, poetry and football stories proved unsuccessful with the other fans.
A frequent lyrical theme for Doherty is Albion, the ancient name for Great Britain. Doherty also uses 'Albion' as the name of a ship sailing to a utopia called Arcadia, a place without rules or authority. Doherty and Bart shared a flat in London, at 112a Teesdale Street, Bethnal Green, affectionately known as 'The Albion Rooms', despite being rather run down. Doherty named his diaries, in which he writes poems and other thoughts, the Books of Albion.

Family and personal life:
Doherty has an older sister and a younger sister, named Amy-Jo and Emily, respectively. His mother Jacqueline Doherty is a nurse, who recently published a book about family life with Doherty and his drug problems, called Pete Doherty: My Prodigal Son. Doherty's father, Peter Doherty, is an Army officer.
After numerous attempts to convince him to start a serious rehab, in early 2005, his father decided that he was tired of broken promises and vowed never to see his son until he is clean of drugs. The sensitivity surrounding the issue became apparent in the BBC Two Arena documentary about Doherty, on 12 November 2006, which included footage of him talking about this aspect of his personal life. He was visibly upset and had to politely ask the interviewer at one point to stop filming. In October 2007, Doherty said in an interview with BBC Radio 4 show, 'Front Row', that he had reconciled with his father after 3 years of no contact when his father came to visit him in rehab.
Doherty has had a tumultuous relationship with Kate Moss, frequently covered by the press. They met in January 2005 at Moss' 31st birthday party and have had an on-off relationship since. Moss has also taken to singing at some of Doherty's shows. On 11 April 2007 he announced Moss as his fiance during the first of his solo gigs at the Hackney Empire, London, at which Moss also performed. Doherty planned to marry Moss during the summer 2007. Since July 2007 Moss and Doherty have broken up.
Doherty has a son named Astile with singer Lisa Moorish.
Doherty is currently engaged to supermodel Irina Lazareanu. This was announced by Lazareanu during the Spring 2008 Fashion Week in Paris.
