Shambles to sign with Geffen
A well known French newspaper has reported that Babyshambles have entered into discussions with Geffen Records (http://www.geffen.com/) in the hope of securing a new record deal.
One source said: "The situation looks promising, but nothing is certain yet as Pete is scared that, signing to Geffen will cause people to draw more parallels between him and the tragic rock star Kurt Cobain. "
In the past Geffen records has been home to American bigshots like Nirvana, Beck, Blink 182, Sonic Youth and Mary J Blige.
Over time, the management at Geffen have dealt with many rebellious stars. It will be interesting to see how they handle Pete.
