Pete Doherty had struggled with drinking and substances for years and it seems that with his dear friend Amy Winehouse’s passing has left him with a bit of a wake up call.
The singer is really broken up about Amy’s passing and wants to do something special in Amy’s honor. Pete has decided to dedicate his upcoming festival shows at the Reading and Leeds Festival to Winehouse. A source explains;
“Pete was really good mates with Amy and he’s still really cut up about her [passing]. He hopes to help get rid of his [bad feelings] by dedicating his festival gigs to her memory. He loved her music and hopes he can do it justice.”
What an incredibly sweet gesture and we hope that Pete is able to stay grounded with Amy’s memory to help guide him.
