>From The Sun:

The Who borrow Pete Doherty
POTTY PETE DOHERTY will replace legendary thrasher PETE TOWNSHEND in THE WHO for one night only.

The Mod Lords’ frontman ROGER DALTREY was so impressed after hearing the former LIBERTINE sing at young cancer sufferer Daniel Squires’ funeral in July that he insisted the pair gig together.

They have lined up a one-off on January 12 in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust charity. The duo will perform a selection of Who songs at the Bristol Academy.

A source said: "Roger was really impressed and touched when Pete performed for Daniel.

"He has told Pete to choose a list of Who songs and they will perform them together. They are both really excited."
