Babyshambles Drummer Quits Band

Troubled rocker PETE DOHERTY has been hit by further problems - the drummer of his band BABYSHAMBLES has quit.

Doherty's supermodel girlfriend KATE MOSS dumped him yesterday (27JAN05) and just hours later, percussionist GEMMA CLARKE walked out on his group.

Clarke has been unhappy in the band since disgruntled fans destroyed his kit, following a stage invasion last month (18DEC05) at London's Astoria venue.

Fortunately, ex-WHITE SPORT drummer ADAM FICEK has agreed to replace Clarke and will make his first appearance with Babyshambles at the British capital's Brixton Academy on 22 February (05).

A statement from the band reads, "As of today, Gemma has been replaced by Adam Ficek as drummer of Babyshambles.

"The first gig with the new line up will be in February."
