Doherty Fails To Honour Promise To Buy Guitar

LATEST: BABYSHAMBLES frontman PETE DOHERTY has failed to honour his promise to buy a guitar from a music store where he played an impromptu gig earlier this month (Mar08). The 29-year-old treated shoppers to a performance in a Reading, England music store, but his music-making was cut short after he accidentally broke a string on his guitar. And despite the mishap, it seemed Doherty was impressed with the goods on offer at the Music Man shop - even asking owner Peter Sirrell to leave aside a $300 (GBP150) guitar which he would return to pay for. But the singer has failed to honour his potential purchase, and hasn't been seen in the store since the mini-gig. Sirrell says, "I'm not surprised he didn't come back - he didn't seem too with it (in a fit mental state)."

Why should he? Isn't it time you took responsibilty for your own instruments? Sure I had help in the beginning, I was lucky, and had supportive parents, but I don't buy clothes(can't you tell?/eat out that much or go to other social events in stead, or indulge in expensive substances, other than chocolate and books of a certain sort, quite often second hand, and I only have holidays on piano courses, and I can't afford those either at the moment, French ones anyhow and all attempts at persuading them to take me on as a helper have failed so far, or a sponsored student, largely I guess, because I don't have a skill I can offer the course - debateable.
