Wow never knew he was bi polar. Actually no surprise really as so many creative people are. My friend is an actress and also bi polar well controlled with meds.
Don't think he does. I think he went through some depression though. The band's been through some hard times so his speech to his bandmates had a special meaning. The bit to Dougie was very moving especially when he said without you I don't know what I'd do as Dougie in his darkest day tried to take his own life.
