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 musician since Sid Vicious. He is enigmatic, charismatic and thoroughly entertaining. Since leaving The Libertines last year, 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. Until now, the truth of his fascinating life has not been told. Written by Alex Hannaford, former rock and pop editor on the "London Evening Standard", this will be the definitive biography of Pete Doherty.
