Tilbrook Brands Doherty 'An Idiot'

Subscribe to Babyshambles alerts

Veteran British rocker GLENN TILBROOK has offered his support for today's troubled stars - but insists Babyshambles star Pete Doherty is "an idiot". The Squeeze star is adamant young celebrities are under immense pressure when they are thrust into the spotlight, and admits it's easy to spiral out of control. He says, "That first flush of fame is like being put in a spin dryer. It is like everything and nothing you ever wanted. Very few performers are in control of their career." But Tilbrook believes troubled musician Doherty - who has been battling heroin addiction for several years - needs to give up the "romantic" habit in order to realise his full creative potential. He adds, "There was a romantic myth about heroin. But Doherty is a talented guy who needs to shape out. At the moment he is an idiot."
