Doherty Finally Recognised As Musician

BABYSHAMBLES frontman PETE DOHERTY admits he's finally experiencing the thrill of making music - now people realise he's a serious artist. Newly drug-free Doherty is blaming his addiction for scuppering his credibility as a singer/songwriter. Doherty - whose drug habit forced him to leave former band The Libertines in 2004 - is currently working on his first solo album, due for completion later this year (08). He says, "I'm only now starting to enjoy making music - I'm only just starting to be allowed to. "When people get us into a room together now, they actually treat us like musicians."
