What do you think of Babyshambles and their singer Pete Dohertys previous band the Libertines?

Babyshambles is my favorite band and Pete Doherty is a genius.
I saw them live this summer and it was just amazing.


Pete dies for his first time:

Music wise I think they're a great band although I did prefer The Libertines...
Most people judge Pete because of all the stupid things he does but when you actually listen to the music its really good

The Libertines were so much better then Babyshambles. I've seen both bands live in the past and The Libertines were far superior. I have a lot of respect for Drew from Babyshambles though as he does a lot more good for the band then Pete seems to. The combined force of Carlos, Pete, Gary and John is what made The Libertines great. Not just Pete and not just Carl, though I personally always preffered Carl's voice. I used to defend Pete a lot, but I have run out of sympathy. But it does annoy me when people say he is only famous because of the all trouble he has been in. Real music fans know that is not the case. He was creating great music with The Libertines and causing a great stir in the music industry way before being on the news every bloody minute because of some stupid drug incident. A lot of people in the entertainment industry only take the information the media gives them. And we all know how the media likes to villanize people.

true. Libertines was a better band, but creds to Pete for taking babyshambles this far.
And I somehow feel that Libertines was doomed to break up. I dont get that feeling with babyshambles.

both carl and pete have great voices, but I cant get enough of petes accent

I like the Babyshambles a lot and I think it's a real shame about Pete Doherty... He's very gifted but keeps destroying himself. But maybe that's where his creativity comes from who knows.
But I have to agree... Libertines were better ^^

Really? I can't see Babyshambles being the sort of band to be around in years to come.
