Pete Doherty

Pete Doherty is an English singersongwriter of Irish-Jewish descent. He became famous when he performed with a band called The Libertines from 1997 until 2004. They were a garage rock band, which is a type of very funky rock influenced by punk. They had a UK number-one album but broke up due to Doherty’s problems with heroin. Later he formed the band Babyshambles, which plays various types of music, including punk and ska. This is a form of Caribbean music similar to reggae. However, Pete Doherty has become more famous for his continuing problems with drugs and his fiery relationship with top model Kate Moss.
