Wolfman

Peter Wolfe (more commonly known as Wolfman) is a London musician of the band Wolfman and the Side-Effects. He is also a friend and the alleged corrupter of Pete Doherty. They also often support Doherty's band, Babyshambles, and used to support The Libertines. His biggest single, "For Lovers", reached No.7 in the UK charts. Although it was written by Wolfman and Doherty, neither made much revenue from the song's popularity. It did, however, give Wolfe some media attention and increased his fanbase.
