Pete Doherty, erstwhile singer with The Libertines, is a British icon. Whether he is playing impromptu gigs in his front room or performing at Live 8, he possesses a sense of drama and expectation not seen in a performer since Sid Vicious. He is enigmatic, charismatic and thoroughly entertaining. Since leaving The Libertines, his life has become something of a rock 'n' roll soap opera where rumours of crack addiction abound, gossip about his relationship with Kate Moss is rife, and predictions for his future vary wildly. Written by Alex Hannaford, former rock and pop editor on the "London Evening Standard", and with a brand new foreword by Pete's mum, Jackie Doherty, this is the definitive biography of Pete Doherty.

Author Biography - Alex Hannaford

As a former rock and pop editor on the London Evening Standard and as a freelance writer and author, Alex Hannaford has interviewed scores of bands and solo artists over the past twelve years. In his spare time he has managed a successful US rock band, driven tour buses, worked as a talent scout for a major label, sung in bands, and even - at times - seen his house turned into a hostel for homeless musicians (much to his wife's annoyance). He has written for the Guardian, Evening Standard, Loaded, Best, Big Issue, Dazed & Confused and Bizarre, among others.
