Pete Libertine in Rehab

Published: 2004-05-19
Being the most Rock N' Roll band in a long while, it's only fitting that the Libertines have the most Rock N' Roll problems. Band member Pete Doherty was recently admitted to rehab to try and drop his drug habit. The musician was entered into the Priory clinic in Britain, where he now finds himself among a schwack of other stars.

This isn't the first time drugs have affected the Libertines. Not too long ago Pete found himself in the middle of a flurry of trouble after abusing illicit drugs. Doherty disappeared from the band, raised some ruckus, and ended himself smack (no pun intended) in jail. Although Pete dropped most of the criminal tendencies, it seems his drug problem followed him onto the other side of prison.

In addition to losing loads of weight, and becoming sickly and gaunt, it seems Pete has even more problems. The star has been placed under suicide watch at the rehab clinic after workers found self-inflicted wounds on his body. This means that the people now responsible for Pete must check on him every few minutes to make sure he's still doing alright. Fans shouldn't be too worried though, for on his site, Doherty assured everyone that self harm is the farthest thing from his mind right now.

Lucky for Libertine fans the band has already finished recording their second album, which is currently being mixed. The upcoming album is slated to be dropped sometime in the summer. Hopefully Pete will find himself well in no time at all, with his drug habit a thing of the past. Then maybe the Libertines will venture over to Canada to support the album, who knows?

If you find it at all possible to navigate around, it is possible to read the musing of Pete Doherty himself.
