According to the NME, our man Pete Townshend still smarts over the kiddie porn charges from a few years ago and marched out of a scheduled interview with Howard Stern after another member of the show took a stab at the old boy. According to the story, Stern later apologized and Pete responded on his website by inviting Howard to lunch.
In other Pete bashing news of another surname, Oasis leadman Liam Gallagher mocked Pete Doherty’s drug problems by calling him (and Keane lead singerTom Chaplin, who recently completed his own rehab stint) “posh lightweights” who can’t take drugs. Gallagher told the Sun that Doherty is “cabbaged,” which is a great put-down even if I don’t know what it means.
The Gallagher brothers, themselves well known for having a taste for the drink and the drug, have yet to see the inside of the famed Priory rehab clinic.
“None of us have been in the Priory, ” said Gallagher. “Not like these little idiots today. They have one little line, they have one burn and they’re all in rehab.”
