Barat 'Relaxing' Into New Career

Former LIBERTINES rocker CARL BARAT is finally enjoying himself as a solo artist - because he spent so much time worrying about ex-bandmate PETE DOHERTY.

Barat and Doherty were close friends when they shared frontman duties for The Libertines, but Barat was devastated when drug addict Doherty robbed his London flat to raise money for his drug habit.

After calling time on The Libertines last year (04), Barat has been writing songs as a solo artist and hopes to release them in the near future.

He explains, "I've had to retune myself. The past three years have been a whirlwind, a real battle. I've been tearing my hair out.

"There were so many worries about what Pete was doing.

"But I've found a lot of freedom writing for myself. There's a lot of self-reflection going on."
