Pete Doherty = 'F***wit'

Pete Townshend is the latest musician to jump on the let's-rip-on-Pete-Doherty-bandwagon. The Who guitarist, most recently noted for his kiddie porn collection (it was for research!), referred to the Baby Shambles vocalist as the "ultimate rock n’ roll nihilist," and, my favorite, "the ultimate rock n’ roll f***wit." This was in response to Doherty's seven counts of drug possession.

Oh yeah, I forgot Pete Townshend was the biggest straightedge artist of his day.

Accusing Pete Townshend of hypocrisy like you did just shows how little you have researched the whole topic. Pete Townshend struggeld for years with drug addiction, and lost two members of The Who to drugs, as well as supporting and setting up and financing hundreds of drug rehabilitation and awareness schemes over the past thirty years, so it's hardly surprising to see him speaking like he did about Pete Doherty who is widely known to be a complete arsehole, whose uncontrollable drug addictions he just made more obvious on occasions such as Live 8, when he was visibly stoned and couldn't even talk properly. He is very much a complete F***wit.

Also, I'd love to see proof of his 'kiddie porn collection'- seems like nobody could find that collection, even the police, so he was NEVER CHARGED WITH A CRIME.

Pete didn't do shit. He was taken for a ride. Talk about a cheap shot on your part. The fact that you insult him even after reading that his friend committed suicide after being sexually abused as a child shows that you deserve to be called the same as Pete Doherty.
