Slaves' Jonny Craig Releases Open Letter About His Problem

(TeamRock Radio) Slaves (US) frontman Jonny Craig has written an open letter to fans saying "I have a problem, I am an addict." Earlier this week, the band announced their show in Santa Cruz, California, would be their last - but gave no further information.

Now Craig has moved to explain the reasons behind the situation - admitting he's "struggling" with his demons but is determined to keep the Slaves (US) name going.

He says: "It's time I set the record straight. For years I have fought hard to escape my past and everything that comes with it. I have continually gotten clean, and then fallen right back into the same ruts.

"I have a problem. I am an addict. I have entered rehab twice, I have sought help multiple times - it just keeps happening. My choices and my struggles have cost me many things - relationships, loved ones, friends, bands, and much more. For letting any of you down, I'm truly sorry.

"I'm struggling. No excuses. I want you, the fans, to know that I'm doing my best to get through these current tours. I will try my best to stay clean and finish these."

Craig reports he's going back on the medicine he was on for four years that helped him stay clean and insists he'll keep the Slaves (US) name alive "with select members." Read more here.
