Babyshambles 'Briefly Split'
British band Babyshambles briefly split on Saturday (24JUN06) after frontman Pete Doherty failed to turn up for a gig in Paris, France. The troubled rocker failed to meet his bandmates at London's Waterloo station to board the Eurostar train to Paris, leaving drummer Adam Ficek and bassist DREW MCDONNELL fuming. British newspaper The Sun claims the pair quit the band after waiting in Waterloo for six hours, but agreed to return the following day after receiving an epic apology from Doherty. The band are currently looking for a record label after they were dumped by Rough Trade last month (MAY06). Their debut album DOWN IN ALBION entered the UK charts at number 10 last year (05) and has only sold 110,000 copies in six months.
