Jesus you come away til I marry you. Be careful, look out now. Just watch it now. One man I love in this world. One man I respect.
He cripples me now.
Just the time we used to spend together and the things we used to do. I highly recommend it to anyone…I do love Peter so dearly. He used to phone me up when he was miserable, when we were having one of our dramas. We could do anything. Individually, together, apart, to each other. I love Peter and …I think Peter loves me. Just knowing each other would hear them and pick up on them. He was a magical character for me.
For a while, he was a bit of a myth. I idolized him, really. We had grand adventures…grand adventures.

If you enjoy physical companionship, romance, something tender, you just want it to be true. Seeing that face … every time I thought about it I nearly passed out.
I just wanted to hold my friend to make him feel better. I actually used to sleep with a knife [in reference to the lyrics: Ah, it is not…but it will never end. Everyone has someone in their life whom they love, but in some way or another, the relationship was abandoned by one of them, or by both of them. You become strangers and you realize that the person you love most in the world, you do not know them anymore.
We never separated…we separated, then we flirted a bit, and in we got back together, but we did not realize it. We only communicated through the press, granting interviews knowing that the other person would read them. I knew that I had to go see Peter, the friend that I love and that I missed, to know if this friend, and this friendship, still existed.

It was terrifying, but I have been able to see things as they were, in all their beauty. My dear old friend, and my brother, with whom I grew up with in such an intense way.
I feel even closer to him than I did before…there is no one else who I connect with at this level. With Carl, I know that there are things that no one else can give.
Peter gives us a book to give Carl, writing a dedication on the page. On my part, there is nothing to forgive I think.
I love him so much, he is like a brother, these are unconditional feelings. Carl takes his mug into the adjacent album store, where with a stroke of luck, he immediately lands on an ideal gift to give back to Peter. I do, of course I do bursts into tears.

The last time we met you were jamming with Congolese funk musicians on a train leaving Middlesbrough 1! What did you learn from that experience?

Your new record 2 was originally going to be a solo one but then you formed a new band, the Jackals. Just the thought of apologetically plopping another solo album on the production line, like: You chose the band through a series of auditions, a process that has been described in the press as an indie X Factor. I would never have said that. Basically, I wanted a band but not made up of people I know because they come with baggage and egos.
What were the band doing before you hired them? Literally rocking and a rolling, just living that life without a fucking clue how to get a leg up anywhere.
The drummer has only left England once - he was playing in a wedding band in Swindon! How many people applied to be in the Jackals? I tried to get back to them all.
Some of them were from all over the world, thinking I would pay their flights back and forth to California! They thought the music industry was this club with free money — I used to think that as well, though. Anyway, we went to the Amersham Arms in south London and we got people down there to play a bit with my mates.
The Libertines: Pete Doherty and Carl Barat reunite onstage
I hate saying no to anyone. I had to do that effectively … times. That was really tough. Was the plan always to make it more raucous than your previous records? Yeah, I think so. Actually, I think it was the cover that rubbed people up the wrong way. What was wrong with it? It was me taking a photo of my beloved, pregnant with my child … but I think it looks a bit narcissistic.
I think that cover was the reason why that fellow from the Black Keys kept having a pop at me. There are a few lyrical references to the Libertines on the record. Were you conscious of that? I was aware of them. How do the band feel about you working with Pete as the Libertines again 5?
