Chaplin: 'I Wanted To Kill Myself'

KEANE singer TOM CHAPLIN considered killing himself before he went to rehab to conquer his alcohol and drug addiction. The British band's frontman made the headlines when checked himself into the Priory last August (06), and admits he was "tired of life" and "pretty suicidal". He says, "In late 2005 and 2006 I was in a state. "My bandmate Tim would come to my house and I'd refuse to answer the door. I was spending a lot of time at home crying in front of Cash In The Attic (British daytime show). I was really depressed taking lots of drugs and drink." Since his release from the Priory, Chaplin admits he has relapsed, revealing, "I haven't been perfect. I've f**ked up a couple of times but nowhere like before."
