McLaren praises Pete: "He's like Vicious"
The punk-rock-godfather added that troubled Doherty takes elements from literary figures as well as the pop stars.
"Pete is fabulous. He's like a combination of Sid Vicious and Morrissey. He's William Blake, he's Thomas De Quincy," he commented. "Even if he only in part knows it."
Ex-Sex Pistols manager McLaren, who also worked on the Kill Bill soundtracks, continued to say that Doherty needs brighter people than Kate Moss around him.
"I can understand why Kate would fall for him," he said. "He needs people around him with sufficient intellect that can enthuse him and help him climb over the rocks that stand in his way due to his personality disorder and problems with drugs."
"I'm not sure Kate is the one to do that."
