Doherty refuses to perform at Boosh festivalMay 29th, 2008 - 1:45 pm ICT by admin
London, May 29 (IANS) Troubled rocker Pete Doherty is refusing to perform at the Boosh festival in Kent ever since he has found out that his enemy singer Johnny Borrell will also be there. Thesun.co.uk reports that Doherty’s group Babyshambles was set to play there but Doherty now doesn’t want to attend. The enmity with Borrell began when they had a fight at the Leeds festival in 2005. Doherty butted Borrell in his dressing room and left him with a broken nose.
A source said: “Doherty detests Borrell with every fibre of his being. He was keen to perform at the event because he is a huge fan of the Boosh. But when he discovered that Johnny was going to be there, he bottled it and refused to perform.”
When discussing the fight, Doherty said: “Johnny is a snake and he is poisonous. He deserved a head-butting.”
