Gahan Chatted With Stuffed Toys While High

DEPECHE MODE star DAVE GAHAN was once so "psychotic" as a junkie he was convinced stuffed toys were talking to him.

The British rocker, who famously overdosed in 1996 and has since tackled his drug abuse problem, admits he failed to notice how mixed up he was - even as his son's toys started chatting with him.

He tells men's magazine Blender, "I had this huge Bugs Bunny doll which would become quite animated when I was out of my mind. I also had a tin man and a lion.

"The tin man used to speak to me. It was classically psychotic behaviour, which of course now I can see.

"But, at the time, I thought, 'Doesn't everyone have these things?'"
