At the peak of fame, creativity and drug consumption, singer and musician PETE DOHERTY (45) won fans not only with his smile, talent and songs, but also with a kind of drug appeal. He didn’t mind injecting poison into his veins and then draining the blood from them in order to draw her pictures and sell them for huge sums. Yellow teeth, black fingers, greasy hair: none of this prevented him from charming Kate Moss, Carla Bruni or Charlotte Gainsbourg. As an opioid user, he watched his friends, including Amy Winehouse, fall into their graves like overripe pears. However, one of the deaths haunts him to this day.

Pete Doherty was born on March 12, 1979 in Hexham, England to Major Peter Doherty and Army medic Jacqueline Michels. With his parents and sisters AmyJo and Emily, he often moved around military bases throughout Europe. He did not have the opportunity to take root in more permanent friendships. In addition, if we imagine a strict but fair father in green, a gentle mother in white and two conspiratorial sisters, the background for a rock star will come out as if it were sewn together.

He inherited nomadism from his maternal grandparents, French and Russian Jews. In high school, he won a literary competition and went on a poetry tour to Russia as a reward. While reciting, he noticed that he electrifies the audience not only with his verses, but with his whole persona. But he knew that he would not make a living from verse. He saw money in the related music industry, the Mecca of which was London. He moved there right after his high school graduation, which he passed with honors. He applied to university to study literature and through his sister AmyJo, a musician, met his fateful partner Carl Barât, who was studying acting. Doherty admired his nimble guitar fingers, and Barât in turn felt that this boy was destined for immortal fame.
