Teenage Pete Video Shows Shocking Changes

by | 22 May 2007

A video of troubled rocker PETE DOHERTY as a fresh-faced teen has appeared, showing the worrying changes in the musician's body.

The clip, which was filmed by MTV at the height of OASIS's heyday, shows a young and clean cut Pete queuing to get hold of the latest album from the Manchester band.

And the changes between then and now are quite apparent on the former LIBERTINES man, with the cheeky teenaged Pete lacking the drawn, dishevelled look he now adopts after his drug-fuelled antics.

When asked in the interview what he thinks of Oasis, a well-spoken Pete tells the MTV presenter: "I subscribe to the Umberto Eco view that Noel Gallagher's a poet and Liam's a town crier and I've always seen that as a perfect combination."

Umberto Eco was an Italian philosopher. The interviewer, clearly amused by Pete, asks him for one word to sum up the band. "Trousers" is the reply.

However, the witty freshness of Pete contrasts sharply with today's image. One friend told the London Lite newspaper: "These photos are shocking. They don't just show the ravishes of time, they show how much Pete has abused his body over the past few years."
