Five Finger Death Punch's Kael Had Breakdown After Paris Terror Attacks
And a month on, he hopes he's able to remain on the wagon. 5FDP were touring Europe when 130 people were killed during a series of coordinated attacks in the French capital, including 89 at the Eagles Of Death Metal concert in the Bataclan venue.
Ivan Moody's band cancelled their planned appearance in Paris, and later called off a show in Milan amid rumors it had been chosen as a target for further terrorist activity.
Kael tells Let There Be Talk: "I'm recently sober. When the Paris thing happened I cut everything out. I basically had a breakdown that night - it hit me hard. I was drinking, I'd done a couple of Adderalls and spiralled that night.
"I feel like I'm just getting over that hump. There have been times over the last year where I've tried to quit. I'm at the point where I feel like I'm turning that corner. I don't have the cravings too much." Read more here.
