Former Snow Patrol bass player MARK MCCLELLAND has slammed his former bandmates for never explaining his sacking from the band. MCClelland - now a member of LITTLE DOSES - claims he has yet to speak with frontman Gary Lightbody, two years after his departure. The 31-year-old says, "It's still an open book but I haven't had any contact with Gary. "I still don't know the reasons why I had to leave the band, no one has told me."
