Pete Doherty has revealed the correct pronunciation of his name.
The Libertines rocker, who is currently working with side project The Puta Madres, visited Radio X to discuss the release of the band's debut album, Peter Doherty and the Puta Madres, and perform some cuts from the new record.
But asked by John Kennedy how he actually says his Irish surname, the Don't Look Back Into The Sun rocker revealed it's actually pronounced Doh-er-ty, rather than Dock-her-ty.

Doherty, who was joined by his Puta Madres bandmate Jack Jones (who is also from Trampolene) gave John Kennedy a performance of their Paradise Is Under Your Nose single.
