Dead for Love

Album: Anthems for Doomed Youth (2015)
  • This somber album closer is Peter Doherty's lament for his late friend Alan Wass. The 33-year-old musician died in hospital of a heart attack two months after severing an artery in his arm when he fell through a window at his home. The guitarist was one of Doherty's closest friends and had played with The Libertines, as well as fronting his own band The Lipstick Melodies.
