Adam Ficek: Pete Doherty's drummer to psychotherapist to the stars (Series 2, Episode 9)

Dec 09, 2019, 09:30 AM
How do you go from being one of the musical sidekicks to the world's most notorious rock star Pete Doherty to a psychotherapist to the stars? This is the question we put to sometime Babyshambles drummer Adam Ficek in this episode.

Adam invited Rick down to his clinic in central London for a good old chinwag about his unusual career change and some classic tales from his days in Babyshambles. He talks about how he joined the band, recorded a couple of their albums and toured the world, before being unceremoniously kicked out by Pete, seemingly on a whim. Adam also gives us the latest on his solo project Roses Kings Castles and discusses whether Babyshambles will ever perform together again.

Elsewhere in the episode, Rick and guest co-host Jamie Fullerton question how a musical written from the point of view of Michael Jackson's fingerless white glove could work and run the rule over Tyson Fury's tilt at the Xmas One spot with Robbie Williams.
