Bobby Gillespie : Fairly Sure of Himself

Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie has anointed Pete Doherty into the elite of British singers – alongside himself.
The rocker – no stranger to a good time himself – has defended the Babyshambles frontman from criticism over his notorious rock’n’roll lifestyle.
Gillespie, due for his biggest chart hit with Primal Scream’s new song Country Girl, believes Doherty is a “great songwriter”, who shares that elusive ‘it’ quality with a select group of British stars.
He explains, “He's obviously into his romantic poets and he likes to get intoxicated heavily, but he is a great songwriter and he is a great musician.
“He loves the press, the notoriety and the fame. I get that impression anyway. But what other rock 'n' roll star has what we've got? He's the only one apart from me, Liam Gallagher and Ian Brown. We're the only ones who have it."
