    Yeah he
    Yeah he had a heart attack about 6 yrs ago mate, I was catching up with him on email a few weeks back on email. Top lad.

    Like me he’s slimmed down a fair bit and put more of a priority on cardio in recent years but he’s still partial to a cycle. He doesn’t go on the message boards these days but I’ll message him see if he’ll make a guest appearance for his fans ;)

    Hiya Ian, send him my regards and hope he's well, as I said previously, used to speak with Mick via email regularly until my account got hacked and taken over.

    Good on you mate and thanks, I've not done anything for years really, started again and started to go up with the weight but tbh Mick, I think a couple of joints are a bit fooked lol.
    luckily I don't really drink, I can take it or leave it, my problem's the fags.

    Not seen/heared from Dan for ages other than the odd post mate, I don't do Facebook any more but I'm almost certain he's off there too.

    Oddly I was thinking about Dan yesterday when I came across some of his old relationship stuff he was going through, now I know a hell of a lot more about Bipolar, Cluster B personality disorders like NPD and BPD , it makes perfect sense why such an intelligent and logical lad was so fucked up about some stuff, it certainly rang a few bells, poor lad, know exactly how it feels.
