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.

Review:

"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 biography that'll make you jealous that you never had what it takes - and glad that you didn't!" ( Sunday Sport)

"Alex Hannaford's account offers critical balance and objectivity, and is...revealing about Doherty's background and his calamitous affair with Moss" ( The Sunday Times)

"Meticulously researched" ( Q magazine)

"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)

From the Publisher:

Groundbreaking, revelatory biography of the singer, poet and icon who transformed the British music scene
