Peter has been interviewed (apparently) in the last number of Loaded magazine. Major press sites are reporting what to them is the main feature of this interview, that is Peter mourning a lost love, but I'm sure he talked about many other things. For example:
He denied he set a bad example to young fans, saying: "I can't see why people call me a bad influence. I meet a lot of kids who are into music. I spend as much time as I can with them. I listen to their demos and I'm encouraging. No-one's ever asked me for a drug dealer's number. It's music, music, music. That's my influence." Doherty, who was released from jail in May where he was locked up for skipping bail after being caught with crack cocaine, heroin, ketamine and cannabis, said: "I'd have to take drugs just to get in the state of mind to deal with the probation meetings. I was constantly monitored. They've been around me since day one, but so has corduroy. Know what I mean? Drugs don't create the sound - they might just change the pitch slightly. Or make you spell a word wrong." Doherty also hit out at Conservative party leader David Cameron saying: "I was in jail during the (local) elections. I heard David Cameron on the radio and he said something like, 'And we have a loser for a Prime Minister'. He's a man who's supposed to be representing the people, not shouting insults across the Commons. He kind of makes me ill, David Cameron. I liked the old-fashioned Tory - like Winston Churchill, who had style. But Cameron's like a new breed - computer-generated. I hate it." Of course, a scan of the whole interview would be much appreciated.
