Peter Doherty is a musician and singer-songwriter. He is one of the frontmen for the rock band, the Libertines, and previously formed Babyshambles and the Puta Madres. Peter's music is as eclectic as it is introspective, and is consistently thought of one of the leading lights on the British rock scene. Born into a military family, Doherty spent much of his youth moving from place to place across Europe. He immersed himself in books and poetry - something that is evident in his lyric-writing to this day.
