Babyshambles bio on the way

Cassell Illustrated has paid a "healthy five-figure sum" for world rights in the authorised biography of indie band Babyshambles.
Babyshambles: The Official Story will be published in November as a paperback and will be written by the band’s members and their entourage, along with Reuters journalist Spencer Honniball. It was bought from Simon Benham at Mayer Benham.
Publisher Matthew Clayton said it would tell “the most exciting rock ’n’ roll story of the last five years”. He compared it to classic rock biographies Hammer of the Gods, about Led Zeppelin, and The Dirt, about ’80s metal band Mötley Crüe.
"If you are looking at music biographies, you couldn’t get a more dramatic or outrageous rock ’n’ roll story,” he said. He refused to be drawn on tales of rock ’n’ roll excess but said that the book would be the “classic rock biography that tells all".
Babyshambles, led by ex-Libertines frontman Pete Doherty, has had an eventful career, including a rotating line-up, Doherty’s struggle with drug addiction amid several incarcerations in prison and his high-profile relationship with, and break-up from, supermodel Kate Moss, in addition to several critically acclaimed albums.
