‘There was a moment in ’88 where management and the band pulled an intervention on me. They thought, “Get the lead singer sober, and all our problems would be over,’” he told the publication.

‘So I got sober and, you know, it took me many years to get over the anger of them sending me to rehab while they went on vacation.

‘But today, because of that moment… I am grateful and owe a thanks to them for my sobriety.’
