The good people at the Observer Music Monthly will be delighted by the lush coverage of their meeting between Paul McCartney and Pete Doherty given by this morning's Mirror:
"Pete promised Paul he was serious about getting clean, was through with the drugs, and said he never wanted to fall back into his dark days again.
"They spoke about everything from music, other singers and even touched on the subject of women - but that was strictly between the two of them."
The thought of Doherty falling quietly into the queue of people "overwhelmed" by meeting McCartney is hardly surprising nowadays, it's still disappointing to see him join those who fawn at the pantheon. Time for your parent's heroes, eh?
