One of the music industries most notorious and self-confessed drug users Pete Doherty is all set to make a big come back in the music world.
The co-lead singer of The Libertines and indie band Babyshambles wants to dedicate his Leeds and Reading festival comeback gigs to the memory of his late and good pal soul singer Amy Winehouse who was tragically found dead at her Camden home in North London last month suspected of a massive drugs overdose.
Pete, 32, has made quite a reputation for himself and has a list as long as your arm for repeated police arrests for drug related offences.
The troubled musician was released from jail only last month after being found guilty of possessing class A drugs but has got his act together and has high hopes of singing some of the Back To Black’s favourite chart hit songs when he performs on the Republic Stage at Leeds festival on Friday, August 26 2011 and again two days later at Reading Festival 2011.
“Pete was really good mates with Amy and he’s still really cut up about her death.
“He hopes to help get rid of his demons by dedicating his festival gigs to her memory.
“He loved her and her music and is really hoping that he can do the songs justice”, said a friend.
