American computer game tycoon, Greg Thomas, paid Dreamboat Pete Doherty $30,000 to perform for him in private. Get this shit. Greg and his wife flew from California to England, so that Pete could serenade them in Pete’s own living room. Greg was told the concert would start at 9pm, but when he showed up, Pete was too fucked up too perform. Greg went back to his hotel and returned at 3am for the show.
While everyone was waiting for Pete to sober up the performance, Pete’s friend said, “This guy loves Pete. It’s going to be really great. I just hope Pete is straight enough to perform. I think someone might have given him some drugs as he’s out of it at the moment. But I’m going to wake him up when they get here.” Someone gave him drugs? Does Pete have several personalities, because I’m pretty sure he gave them to himself.
Greg and his wife stayed most of the morning and even videotaped the performance and got some pictures and autographs from Pete. They also probably left with some sort of jungle disease from sitting on Pete’s furniture. I bet they weren’t planning on that.
Pete said, “The gig went really well. It was really nice. I got to try out lots of new material. These people were real aficionados. They certainly know their stuff. Everything I played went down really well, from old songs all the way through to my new stuff which no one’s heard. They were a really nice couple as well. They’ve got three children and it was just nice all round, all for a bit of pocket money.”
Pete Doherty himself isn’t even worth $30,000! These rich people are all sorts of eccentric. I pay $30,000 and I have to come to you and wait around? Greg Thomas has a crazy Doherty fetish. That being said, I need to get with Greg Thomas right away. It’s the only way I can be near Dreamboat.
