Yes, I know the prisons are getting overcrowded but surely an exception can me made for Doherty??????

I'll give it a week before he's hauled back in front of a magistrate for some drug related crime....and as before he'll be told off or he'll fob them off with some story about him "attending rehab" only to walk out a day later saying he cannae hack it :brickwall:brickwall:grr::grr:

I'll never see how people see him and his junkie pal Winehouse as role models :grr::brickwall

Oh what a lovely life you live, to get wound up by someone you don't know getting released from prison.
Did Pete stamp on your bunny or something?

Nope...but he's corrupted the pages of most papers with his coked face.....and lets face it, he's a dreg of society...

If you saw someone that could busk a good tune but was a druggie...would you preach about how great he is.....exactamundo

And while you're at it, look through your music collection, and throw out anything that was made by someone on drugs.
Wouldn't want to corrupt you with junkie role models....

Maybe so.....but then I don't look to musicians for role models....plus most of the artists I listen to don't go out there way looking for trouble and appearing like they've just auditioned for the role of Casper The Ghost.....:bye:

Hardly think he goes looking for the press and police? The problem is that musicians are boring as **** these days and everyone complains about keane and coldplay but as soon as someone's ****ging a supermodel and taking drugs they should be burnt at the stake. Put the Daily Express down and walk away

I started playing guitar about 2 years ago Gramo because I wanted to be able to learn **** Forever. I'm now (in my opinion:greengrin) a pretty competent guitar player and can play the said song without any fuss. Being able to play the guitar is now a part of me and a talent that I now have and it's mainly down to the influence of Pete Doherty.


On the other hand I have never touched any illegal substances in my life (and you can ask Danny for my thoughts on that if you wish).

You claim that Pete is the dregs of society yet he's already lead a much more successful life than you ever will and has affeted more people in a positive way than Steven Fletcher or Amadou Konte could ever wish to. When the time comes that Pete does inevitabley die, I would bet my last penny that there will be more people that will look back and appreciate him, his achievements and the impact that he's had on society than thos that will think 'at least Gramo is still here, he pays his bills an does an honest days work'

Whether you like him or not, whether he's a junkie or not, whether you like is songs or not, it is not your place to call someone that will always have a bigger impact on people (in a positive manner) the dregs of society when it's simply not true.

Rapists, murderers, spongers etc are the dregs of society, not a crack taking rock star who has influenced thousands of people worldwide.

Why? His crime is not particularly harmful or dangerous to anyone but himself; he cannot be seen as a danger to society.

And, if you care so little about him, why keep him in jail? You are paying for that, after all. Surely better to let him "rot" at someone else's expense, no?

Perhaps, but I bet the pair of them are better singers.

Storar....you've developed a sensitive side :greengrin

Well...I salute you for learning the guitar to play one of his tunes....I'm getting to the point up until his recent jail sentence (29 days ain't a sentence mind you)....he's been untouchable because he's a celeb....

I'm not really too fussed if PD has more people saluting him when he dies than me....it's expected (altho I would hope the legions of Gramo fans will line Leith Walk and sing Sunshine On Leith....

I want to see like for like punishments.....

If I battered a bloke (chance would be a fine thing :greengrin) and I got jailed for 6 months....I'd expect to see PD done for the same....it wouldn't happen because he'd flash his trilby and be out of court with a slapped wrist....the fact that he's gotten away with so much drug abuse is shocking and it must make some of his fans (not including yourself in that) think the "Drugs is a cool thing, it'll make me the coolist dude at school)"...

As for Winehouse....don't even get me started....

Don't really have a problem with Pete Doherty - think its a shame what he has become though.

As for Amy Winehouse, they should lock her up and throw away the key - anything to stop her making music :bitchy:

I normally stay out of your Pete Docherty arguments because we have totally different points and I know none of us will ever change our opinions but I agree with everything you say, and the way it is put :agree:
Very good argument and respect all your points on him.

My opinion, shame his music career comes down to taking drugs.
Most of the muisc is good and I can see how it affected a generation. not my thing but dont hate it.
However he should be given a harsher jail sentence as he gets away with it time and time again!

I dont think the problem lies with Pete Doherty. The problem lies at the door of the justice system. If PD got the same punishment as everyone else would get, not only would most people who dislike him not bother with him anymore, but also PD himself would probably make a much more substantial effort to get off drugs for good. In doing so he would probably become more successful as those people who cant see past the drugs would be open to his music and he would be less of a taboo.

The society we live in where those who have money and/or power are able to get away with criminal offenses is damaging everyone, including those who think they are getting away with it.

That old chestnut that buying illegal drugs only affects one person and that sthe person taking them. There is a chain reaction when you buy any illegal goods.

I think its a shame hes so hooked on drugs, i dont like his music and i dont really like him but he does have some talent, or he must since so many people enjoy his music.
