Q: February 2017 Pete Doherty
In the new issue of Q, we head to Paris for an audience with Pete Doherty. Sylvia Patterson spends two nights with Doherty at the Bataclan discussing rememberance, violence, heroin, detox, love, music, crack pipes, Amy Winehouse and every point in-between.
The issue also features Q’s 50 albums of 2016 and comes with a cover-mounted CD containing 15 hand-picked tracks from some of the year’s best records. As part of our coverage of the year, there’s a six-page reminder why the world belonged to David Bowie in 2016 and a preview of the forthcoming David Bowie: The Last Five Years BBC documentary. There’s a 23-page special tribute to Leonard Cohen as told through his 20 best songs and a piece by Adam Cohen about his dad
Elsewhere, we join Tuareg rockers Tinariwen in the desert for a special gig and witness Coldplay up close as they play an intimate show at London’s Palladium. The Q Review section runs the rule over new records from Neil Young, The Flaming Lips, A Tribe Called Quest, The Rolling Stones and Common amongst many others.
