Pete Doherty used to be a staple of this column simply because it’s easy to write about someone who ruined a once-promising rock career to become a smelly puddle of drugs (and Amy Winehouse’s best crack buddy). But hold onto your hats, ladies and gentlemen — it’s like 2006 all over again because Doherty is back in the news!
Over the weekend, Doherty decided to belt out the first stanza of “Das Deutschlandlied,” considered a Nazi anthem. Tasteless, sure. But what makes it a zinger was that he was at a music festival. In Germany. The organizers removed him from the stage.
Just goes to show you that no one likes anything having to do with Nazis unless Indiana Jones is there. And you, Pete Doherty, are no Indiana Jones.
