Biography

A gifted, straight-A student, Pete Doherty's poetry won him a place on a British Council tour of Russia aged 16, before he met Carl Barat and formed The Libertines in 1997. Driven by an explosive, rock'n'roll vision and a doomed, bohemian romanticism, they became darlings of the British indie scene but were torn apart by Doherty's anarchic lifestyle. After serving two months in prison for burgling Barat's flat, Doherty teamed up with Wolfman for his first solo hit For Lovers, a UK Number 7, before forming Babyshambles, getting sacked from The Libertines and becoming the talk of the tabloids for his turbulent relationship with super-model Kate Moss. Chronicling the highs and lows of the stormy ride, debut solo album Grace/Wastelands (2009) showed Doherty's bumbling, poetic sensitivity, referencing Byron and featuring contributions from Graham Coxon and Dot Allison. In 2010 The Libertines reformed to play the Reading/Leeds festival.
