Doherty teams up with American Express spokesperson

It's not quite the 'Pete Doherty to join The Who' story the headline might have you believe.

It's not even the 'Pete Doherty to replace Pete Townshend' claim the standfirst tries to pitch.

What it is, though, is a proposed live collaboration between Roger Daltrey and Pete Doherty in aid of Daltrey's Teenage Cancer Trust foundation. A man whose greatest moment came singing that he hoped he died before he got old, and a man who has thrown away many of the extraordinary chances luck and life had presented him with. Presumably some sort of act of atonement.
