Pete Doherty To release ‘A Likely Lad’: “a rock memoir like no other”

April 20, 2022

The Libertines singer Pete Doherty will publish a memoir called A Likely Lad this summer! He’s written the book with Simon Spence and the goal is to release June 16.

A synopsis of the book reads, “Doherty’s version of the story – the genuine man behind the fame and infamy. This is a rock memoir like no other. In A Likely Lad, Doherty explores his darkest moments. With astonishing frankness – and his trademark wit and humour – he takes us inside decadent parties, substance-fuelled nights, prison and his self-destruction. Doherty also reflects on the turbulent relationships with various significant people in his life across the years.”

Doherty meanwhile, has been clean from drug addiction for over two years. You have to imagine there’s going to be a good amount of partying in the book. There has to be, right?

What’s the best rock book you’ve read?
