- Pete Doherty involved in murder cover-up?
My opinion is that i find it hard to believe that no one there knew he returned and that they are all unaware of the events that happened
Perhaps a joint enterprise charge would help with memory recall?
Of course, of course. That goes without saying.
No need it is indeed a strange case and you have made no claims as to the participants [unlike me]Posted 5 years ago
I know to preface it with my opinion as its hard to prove that it is indeed not my opinion and I have made no claim as to whether it is true or false simply that its my opinion 8)Munqe-chickMember
Not Pete Doherty but another wierd one!Posted 5 years ago
I love the Sun readers pub banter you generally get about him.
“He’s a bloody waste of space, smackhead etc etc. Whats he ever bloody done eh?”
“Have you ever listened to the Libertines?”
Basically this seems to amount to they don’t play his stuff on Radio 2, like that Snow Patrol stuff you like so much, so therefore it must be rubbish 🙄
“The truth will out.”
It probably already has, and this – like every single other ‘conspiracy theory’ – is just a load of old cobblers!Posted 5 years ago
One of the gifted songwriters of our time
Whilst its not been a great decade for music it is surely not been that bad has it ?
Binners to call this a conspiracy is silly
Have a read of the link
He argued with doherty , he was evicted , he returned, no one noticed him at all as he crept back in and silently jumped to his death in a manner that looks like he was thrown and no one saw anything
I find it hard to believe that this account is actually accurate whatever you think of his music.Posted 5 years agoShibbolethMember
Yep. Very average. Forgettable. Unremarkable. Nothing new. Pick one of those
Nothing new? Hmmm… Well you could say that about any musician, even the oh-so-trendy dickwads trying to invent new genres like dubstep in order to showcase their “creativity”.
Or you can look at the sheer poetry in his lyrics, the abstraction, the beautiful way he splits couplets. Check out “Music When The Lights Go Out” as an example… His genius is the apparent simplicity, but the structure is far from simple.
I find his songs just keep growing, something new every listen. He’s the only songwriter in recent years that can give me goosebumps when I recognise another clever twist in a song I’ve heard hundreds of times.
Then look at his Babyshambles work, much written whilst in prison. “Down in Albion”, a stunningly wistful reminisce and “Pentonville” itself, maybe not groundbreaking but brilliant in its own right.Posted 5 years agoDugganMember
He’a a pretty talented guy musically, regardless of whether you think he’s an idiot or not. For sure, if I decided I didn’t like music made by idiots, half of my music collection would disappear.
I watched the programme on BBC last night about this (think it was an excerpt in Newsnight) and there’s definitely no conspiracy theory and there is 100% a case to be answered. I really don’t think that much is in dispute.
I’ve always thought of Docherty as a nice guy but with big problems, but I have to say that he did not come across well in the Newsnight investigation, even when taking into account his addiction problems.Posted 5 years ago
I have no interest in what he’s like as a person but his music is really very average and extremely derivative. He seems to be one of the massively overrated artists of recent times – usually by people who buy into the whole ‘flawed genius/junkie poet’ persona.

I love some of his music, Libertines/Babyshambles are tinged with genius, I even tend to enjoy watching rock & roll antics, but I lost 99% respect for him when I watched an interview where he went off camera for a couple of minutes (to shoot up) and came back to rejoin the band – and promptly squirt the camera lens with fresh blood from his syringe.
Given the circumstances, how anyone could think this chap genuinly decided to re-enter the party like a silent ninja and kill himself within 57 seconds is beyond me.
Manslaughter at best.
But PeDO guilty? He doesnt have the strength. The ‘roided bodyguard however?..Posted 5 years ago
