Pete Doherty: 'Being F--ked Up All The Time Is Not That Exciting'
Pete Doherty has said that he no longer finds it exciting to "be f--ked up all the time" and has claimed that he can get an equally powerful rush from "having a good night's sleep". The former Libertines singer admitted that "for a little while maybe I did fall for my own mythology". He went on to say: "It's not actually that exciting to be f--ked up all the time. The rush that you get from having a good night's sleep is so exotic: to feel powerful and clean, capable and potent, as opposed to washed up, impotent and mute. "It's like if you sing and you've been up for four nights, your voice is puny and has no power," he added. "The difference when you've rested and had a banana in the morning, it's outrageous! You can scare yourself sometimes with what a bit of healthy living can do." As NME reports, when asked if he now always plumped for early nights, however, he said: "No. It means that I can completely see the necessity of having a bit of self-control now. It's going to be the only way to salvation for me, to give myself some clean time and take a proper run at it." Doherty also spoke out about his alleged theft of a missing trolley on a French train. The singer had previously claimed that he had been unable to travel to see Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds play a show in Tolouse (October 12), as he had been in talks with France's national railway company, SNCF, over the trolley which contained staff uniforms, cold meats and cutlery. Speaking about the incident, he said: "A pair of shoes had been left on the platform. And I was in a bit of a state, I was basically in these hotel slippers, and I was late for a train at Gare de Lyon. So I just put these shoes on. It was only afterwards as the train was pulling out I saw a ticket inspector with no shoes coming down the platform. It was comic more than anything. I posted them back. I just changed the laces from black to pink." However, a spokesperson for the SNCF said: "We don't ban anyone from trains" and claimed they had no idea as to whether Doherty's story was true.
