The Cribs - Jarman's Brothers Helped Him Through Dark Times

The Cribs rocker Ryan Jarman has relied on his bandmate brothers to help him through illness and "self-loathing issues" over the last few years.
Jarman admits he has been through a tough time and recently moved in with his sibling Ross following the breakdown of his relationship with his singer girlfriend Kate Nash.
He tells Nme magazine, "I've been living with Ross for the last few months. We're closer than we've ever been. And (bandmate and twin) Gary's been in America so I go out and see him. I felt those guys came through for me.
"I was just quite ill last year, during the writing of the record, and it's cost me a lot. I had real self-loathing issues. Things are getting better... the last couple of years haven't been easy."
The group is now preparing to head off on another tour, but Ross admits he is worried his vulnerable brother won't be able to handle the pressure of being on the road.
He adds, "Going back on the road... I don't necessarily think it'd be a good thing for him (Ryan), mentally. It does concern me. We're a close band, so I think it'll be OK."
