Uh...surprise...?

Pretty sad about this. My favourite band growing up.

So the Basket Case video was prophetic!

Jesus.. Didn't watch the full video but I honestly didn't expect it. Hope he can get well quickly.

that explains it

good luck to him. though it's not the first time he gets into trouble for booze related stuff. he got a DUI here in the Bay Area about 10 years ago.

I wonder if the issue he had a few weeks back had something to do with his substance abuse?

It isn't unexpected, I mean he said he was doing drugs live on Radio 1 but all the best to him and his treatment

He would have done the same thing sober.

that was my first thought too, but if Billie/close ones think he has issues with drugs/whatever, I hope he gets help and works past it

Give up the horrible music please. Retire with the dignity that you guys have left, I beg of thee!

Sloth7 09/23/12 01:59 PM

What a shame but sadly not entirely shocking following the meltdown. Hoping he gets himself better asap.

Damn, I really thought their set was cut short. I was on his side with this but oh well. At least he's getting treatment now.

Oh man. It's great to see that Billie is taking the initiative. Good luck to him.
