Pete Doherty & Liam Gallagher’s Big Idea

by | 15th, November 2006

PETE Doherty and Liam Gallagher are planning to open a pub.

The Star says it is sure that at the venue “there will be Cigarettes and Alcohol all round”. This is a pun on the title of an Oasis song.

And it is, of course, only partly right – very soon there will no cigarettes at any drinking hole in the country. Smoking is to be banned from pubs and clubs, including those with a celebrity theme.

But let us not be too hard on the Star. Surely it would have adapted a title of one of Doherty’s hit songs to fit the story, but since no one can name any, it makes do.

And so to the story. And the paper says that while sat at a pub, Gallagher and Doherty had a moment of catharsis. Why not open their own pub?

This was a rare meeting or minds, not witnessed in the world of popular music since Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson started finishing each other’s sentences on the hit song I Know him So Well.

And this is not all Pete and Liam have in common. As a source tells the paper, Peter knows Liam through a certain Lisa Moorish. And it’s Moorish by name and moorish by nature as Lisa is mother to a child by each of the singers.

So the idea for a pub was hatched. And the concept is for a traditional pub, with traditional ales, lagers and spirits. There is good old fashioned pub grub – pies.

Sounds great. And not unlike the Woolpack Public House, the pub in the soap opera Emmerdale, formerly Emmerdale Farm.

As you may recall, the Woolpack was run by two men, Amos Brearley and Mr Wilkes. Many an episode of the soap was given a full stop by Mr Brearley and Mr Wilkes switching off the lights and saying: “Goodnight, Mr Wilkes”, “Goodnight Mr Brearley.”

Incidentally, until recently Emmerdale featured Patsy Kensit, Liam’s former wife.

She has a child by Gallagher, but not by Doherty…
