Babyshambles man says he supplied Julian and co with acid
“I actually already knew them (The Strokes) before I was in a band or anything,” he explained. “It was back when I was working in a bar pulling pints. I used to sell a few little things on the side, you know?
“They were on their first tour, and were like just a few American lads in London looking for a good time. They met a friend of mine, who said I could get them a few bits and bobs. I think I sold them a load of acid, they gave me tickets to their gig, I got them some more acid and it went from there.”
Pete Doherty releases his solo album, ‘Grace/Wastelands’, on Monday (March 16).
