About this deal

Some of us are seeking bliss, but others are truly courting oblivion - whether consciously/subconsciously and whether they're willing to admit it (to themselves and others) or not. There are eccentric, shady characters, altercations with celebrities, tabloid dramas, and, of course, copious quantities of hard drugs. drugs are mentioned for the first time and then it's all about jailhouse rock and the romanticizing of drugs - the classic sex, drugs and rock 'n roll story.

With his trademark wit and humour, Doherty also details his childhood years, key influences, pre-fame London shenanigans, and reflects on his era-defining relationship with Libertines co-founder Carl Barât and other significant people in his life. I wanted her to prove her love, so I said, You’ve got to get a tattoo with my initials on, you’ve got to get branded – it was more more of an insecurity thing on my part. The book is, essentially, a lightly edited transcript of many hours of rambling interviews, and reads like it.Having your home raised by the police is even kinda fun at first until it starts to all come on top.

His family and friends’ response to his addiction is summed up as: “Everyone was a bit on a knife’s edge about the drug thing, really. I'm sure part of the problem is if so much of one's life revolves around running off to take drugs and passing out, then there's not that much to say. It was great to be able to hear his take on those situations and how he got out of them by the skin of his teeth! A Likely lad is reminiscent of an amalgamation of two other ghost-written memoirs; Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth and and John McEnroe: Seriously. It lacked a bit of detail and spark about certain things and felt more like a chronology of his life.He also didn't describe how he felt about Amy's death (for example), or describe his complex love for Carl.
