That libertine PETER DOHERTY (now 43) had a turbulent life so far is
an understatement. And there are tons of stories to back it up, now
assembled in a memoir titled A LIKELY LAD written by the man himself
and Simon Spence.
Out 16 June. Order info here.
Rough Trade: “The long-awaited, candid memoir from Peter Doherty, whose talent as a musician has more often been eclipsed by a Herculean appetite for selfdestruction: drugs, prison, prostitution, court, murder, death, robbery, car crashes and hospital emergencies.
There is humour, warmth, insight, baleful reflection, and a defiant sense of triumph. This is Doherty’s version of the story – the genuine man behind the fame and infamy. This is a rock memoir like no other.”
Only last month Doherty released an album made with French composer Frédéric Lo.
The Fantasy Life Of Poetry & Crime is a diamond of a record.
One of the best albums I heard so far, this year.
