Back­stage...

Q (UK) - - Contents -

“After five hours’ weary wait in the Paris Bat­a­clan’s dress­ing room, Alex Lake sprang out of his seat – as fast as Usain Bolt and pos­si­bly even taller – the mo­ment Pete Do­herty fi­nally ap­peared. Rock’s in­fa­mous pim­per­nel, be­wil­dered as ever, was then guided by the jovial and de­cep­tively firm Q lens­man through his close-ups, be­fore stalk­ing him down cor­ri­dors to the back­stage mo­ment where the full band cir­cled for a pre-show Group Hug. Lake didn’t miss, nat­u­rally, Do­herty’s ro­man­tic gaze into his girl­friend Ka­tia’s eyes. After also shoot­ing the storm­ing show he cel­e­brated with a whisky. Or nine.” Q Writer, Sylvia Pat­ter­son

“Group hug!”: Q’s chief pho­tog­ra­pher Alex Lake snaps Pete Do­herty and band for this month’s cover fea­ture, The Bat­a­clan, Paris, Novem­ber 2016.
