"After suffering from exhaustion I had the nastiest panic attack of my life and I was hospitalized, forcing us to cancel our Download warm-up show. At its worst, some mornings after failing to sleep at all once more, I'd get up feeling utterly distraught and just burst into tears - and the months that followed became some of the most strange and difficult of my life."

Reynolds continues: "I don't remember Download festival at all. I was a shell of a man surviving on adrenaline. Even had vitamin shots to the arse. I've never felt further from the little cockpit of one's mind. I felt detached, inept and scared." Read more here.
