British rocker Carl Barat
has branded speculation he was to reunite with his former The Libertines
bandmates at England's Glastonbury Festival "hurtful". It was rumored Barat and singer Pete Doherty
would share the Acoustic Stage at the Somerset festival this weekend.
But Barat denies plans for a festival reunion and claims such speculation is unfair on the members of his current band Dirty Pretty Things.
He says, "I don't mind the rumors, but it's a bit unfair on the lads (Dirty Pretty Things) sometimes. When people love the songs we do with the boys it detracts a little bit. I'd love play with Pete one day, someday, but I always say we're doing our own things at the moment."
Meanwhile, Barat hinted he "married" his girlfriend at the festival's Chapel Of Love And Loathing
with The Charlatans
frontman Tim Burgess officiating.
Barat says, "It's true, sort of!. Tim Burgess was a mumbling priest and I think he said 'Do you take this woman', but I don't think it's legally binding!"
