As if you already didn’t know (Nu Rave Brain Wave):
Pete Doherty has said that he was in hospital on a life support machine in October when he had to cancel a series of Irish solo live dates. “If I hadn’t been on a life support machine I’d have been in Ireland,” he told NME.COM, speaking of his stay in Swindon’s Great Western Hospital. “But my heart stopped.”
“Their [doctors’] immediate thought was that it was to do with drugs but it wasn’t,” he said. “What happened? Well, I don’t know. I don’t remember. I was running into the walls, making steering wheel signs with my hands. And then I just… stopped. My body just stopped.”
The wisest choice is obviously to go ahead with the December tour that Babyshambles have scheduled that leave out London AND Brighton. “A tour’s just what the doctor ordered,” he said.
