Doherty's Shop Gig

BABYSHAMBLES frontman PETE DOHERTY treated shoppers in Reading, England, to an impromptu performance in a music store - but the gig was cut short when the rocker snapped a string on the shop's guitar. The 29-year-old picked up one of the instruments in the Music Man shop and launched into a rendition of his hits, but Doherty's energetic show was halted when he got carried away and accidentally broke the G string. But despite the breakage, store owner Peter Sirrell was delighted with the star's surprise appearance. He tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "He had a whale of a time. he even asked me to put by a GBP150 ($300) guitar for him and he said he would be back in later to pay for it."

The guitarist in the photo doesn't look like Pete, as last seen. Much more like someone else I know. RegardsDinah
