In July 2006, band member Carl Barât gave an interview with Boyz magazine where he was asked about his reaction to slash fiction about him and Peter Doherty being published on the Internet. His response was, "I completely advocate creative thought, and if people want to make up stories, I am flattered to be involved. I don't mind it at all really. I'd rather people did creative things than did nothing or negative things or talking shit in forums."

The Band

The Libertines were an English rock group who came to prominence in the early 2000s. After some personnel changes early in their history, the band consisted of Peter Doherty (rhythm guitar and vocals), Carl Barât (lead guitar and vocals), John Hassall (bass), and Gary Powell (drums). The band centered around the songwriting partnership of Doherty and Barât, and their charged, highly volatile relationship.

The band broke up after the release of their second album, The Libertines, in 2004, due to Doherty's increasing unreliability and drug problems. Doherty went on to form Babyshambles, and became a staple of the British tabloids through his relationship with model Kate Moss. Barât and Powell joined forces to create Dirty Pretty Things, along with ex-Cooper Temple Clause bassist Didz Hammond and guitarist Anthony Rossomando, who had filled in for Doherty on the Libertines' last tour. Hassall went on to form the band Yeti.

On April 12, 2007, Barat and Doherty reunited at the Hackney Empire in London and played together in the most formal reunion since the band's split. They followed this performance with a recording of The Beatles' "A Day in the Life" in June 2007 for BBC Radio 2's 40th anniversary celebration of the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album, the first time they had recorded together since recording the last Libertines album.
