9780091910792: Pete Doherty: Last of the Rock Romantics

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.

About the Author:

Alex Hannaford is a former rock and pop editor on the London Evening Standard who has interviewed scores of bands and solo artists over the past tweleve 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 evenat timesseen 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.

Review:

"By far the more revealing about Doherty's background and his calamitous affair with Kate Moss."  —Sunday Times

"A must for anyone obsessed with rock and fashion's premier on-off couple."  —Elle

"Here's his life to date laid bare and examined in a compelling biogrpahy that'll make you jealous that you never had what it takes—and glad that you didn't!" —Sunday Sport

"Hannaford is good on why it is that so many modern-day folk heroes feel obliged to self-destruct on the public stage—and the sections in which he dissects this rock 'n' roll archetype are the best parts of the book."  —Toby Young

"Meticulously researched."  —Q
