Pete Doherty to publish diaries!
Doherty publishes diaries

By HELEN DOWD
Sun Online


LOOK OUT Adrian Mole - it's the Diary of Pete Doherty aged 27 3/4.
Pete Doherty is set to release his first book - but in true rock'n'roll style he didn't show up at the party to celebrate the book deal.

The book of poems, drawing, lyrics and personal reflections was launched will be the Babyshamble's frontman's first published work.
Doherty was supposed to be the guest of honour at the party - which was even held in his favourite pub in North London - but he didn't make it.
He released a statement saying how excited he was about publishing his work.
He said: "I am very happy to have a book coming out with Orion and to share a bookshelf with H G Wells, Ian Rankin and Stan Bowles.
"Iíve always wanted to have a book published and itís all very exciting for me personally."
Ian Preece, commissioning editor of Orion Books, told disappointed guests that Pete was unable to attend the party at the Boogaloo pub in Highgate, North London.
"It's probably because Holland v Argentina is on. Thatís rockínírollĒ he explained.
Doherty's journals will chart his rise to fame with band the Libertines, and document his spectacular fall from grace.
Pete has courted controversy ever since - and was booted out of the band after bandmate Carl Baratt got sick of his heroin-fuelled rages.
He's alleged to have also written about his relationship with Kate Moss and his spells in rehab and jail.
Preece said: ďThe diaries stretch right back to Peteís early years. They are full of poems, lyrics, thoughts, artwork and photos.
"Some of it is very funny, some it is pretty dark. All of it is incredibly
readable.
"It is intimate and honest stuff and a complete antidote to a lot of what you might have read about him."
But keen fans will have to wait until March 2007 to read Pete's book.
The singer has just checked out of a Portuguese rehab clinic where he was treated for crack and heroin addiction.
But he's been warned he faces jail if he doesn't stay clean.

I have a feeling that the only way I would ever understand his book is if I befriended some of the powdery white stuff.

This means his career is effectively over then, as this is the only point at which musicians write biographies...

I'd really want to read it....though it is almost a sell out. Who knows what he'll say about Kate or his former bandmates? Wonder if it'd even be readable...if there'd be too many drunken/high slurs?

He's probably out of money and on the verge of bankruptcy. So he needs some cash flow pronto.

That`s totally my point! He sold his Cellphone (with textmessages from Kate on it!) for a few pounds because he needed a shot - what details do you think he`ll give away for a million!?!

They are just the books of Albion I think. Loads of them are published online already and they are often beautiful and often hilarious. How can one condemn without having seen them.

Whaddaya mean wannabe Kurt, Fairy? Most people would agree that Pete is a better musician that Cobain. Just because you died young doesnt make your band great. And you could say that just because you are a tabloid whore, you aren't necessarily a great musician. But then he was being lauded before the crack took complete hold, before the models, before the tabloids. But that could be because much as I like Nirvana, I have never understood the hysteria.

And he is definately out of crack money. That is undoubtedly the motive. Idiot.

Hmm wonder if he was behind Holland or Argentina.

I was going to say that I might read it because of Kate Moss but seeing as how it's poems....
