26-year-old Pete Barrett first entered the world of journalism whilst on tour with the Grateful Dead in ’72. Following work as Leonard Cohen’s ghost writer he became roving photographer for the Daily Bugle, but left after repeated attempts on his life by the Green Goblin. After spells at Rolling Stone, Paris Vogue and the Hackney Gazette, he entered the world of restaurant criticism, training the young AA Gill. He dreams of one day becoming football editor for the News of the World, and cites Kerouac, Ginsberg and Burroughs as his greatest fans. Incidentally, none of this is true.
