This article does explain a lot especially when you see past interviews where he isn't present in them. Plus I remember seeing an interview on You Tube from This Morning in the late 90s where the former singer seemed to be off his head. He seemed a bit full of himself. Like 'look at me I'm the star!'

This does explain the side I didn't know much about. I have to admit I was all for him but my apologies I am starting to see the truth now what he really is like.

No need for any apologies Jamie. We never played the tabloid celebrity game. Our private lives were our own business. We always showed a united front in public. like any team should. As I have already said, while he was a member of the band we could protect him from himself to a degree, and protect ourselves from negative publicity. But when he left and started telling stories about his old bandmates in the press then I don't think we have any responsibility to keep those facts secret any more.

its all plain to see now how he is behaving Jim so to cover up for 28 years is actually an amazing feat

It must of been horrible. Having to cover for someone like that! The way he was behaving in this article is so bad and to a professional. It put's a bad name to the rest of the band.
