Wedgie Nearly Ended Pete Doherty's Career


Pete Doherty, who has just released a solo album (I posted the lead track with its male kiss recently), says "a burly Scotsman" nearly caused him to quit music after giving him a wedgie at a concert:

"The Babyshambles frontman was reduced to tears when he was grabbed in his nether regions as he stage dived during a gig... The singer admitted he was so put off by the unusual welcome, he fled the stage and took shelter in the tour bus until the gig finished. He said: 'I hid in the tour bus crying. The gig was going great, so I thought, 'I'll dive in,' and this big Scotsman just grabbed hold of my pants and said, 'Cop a load of this, Doherty.' Those were his exact words.' The embarrassed former Libertines star let it slip that he was too embarrassed to tell his bandmates the reason behind his escape from the stage and even told them he wanted to quit the group. 'When they found me on the bus I was crying my eyes out, going, 'The band's not working out. We should split up.' Nobody believed that was what was wrong, and eventually I snapped, 'All right, I got a wedgie, OK?''"
