There's nothing inherently wrong with inviting Pete Doherty to give a lecture, as The University Philosophical Society of Dublin has done.

The Phil will be holding the infamous Pete Doherty to talk life, love and much more. Come for a taste of what a rock 'n roll (hopefully minus the sex and drugs) lifestyle entails and if you have any burning questions to ask, bring those too!
Although 'what's it all about, then?' might be an unwelcome intrusion.
At least Dolores O'Riordan - who is doing a session there this week - is going to sing some songs rather than just delivering an opinion-purge on an unknown subject.
