The Libertines, the British alt-rock band featuring former Kate Moss boyfriend Pete Doherty, who battled massive drug problems and who always looks disheveled, like he just rolled out of bed, like he needs a power-wash shower and like his liver is slowly dying, have reunited to play the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK, from August 27 through August 30. While The Libertines were a minor band in the America, they were huge in their native UK.
The Libertines are booked only to perform two U.K. festival shows. At a press conference in a London pub –how appropriate- held last week, bassist John Hassall stated, "We'll do these gigs and hopefully have a great time and then maybe that will be the start of something." Yeah, sure, it can be the start of something if Doherty can keep his shit together, which is doubtful at best and at our most generous!
Do you think The Libertines' reunion will last? And if so, will they finally catch on in America?
