Trou­bled singer hos­pi­talised.

Classic Rock - - The Dirt -

Gin­ger Wild­heart has been forced to post­pone shows in Manch­ester and Lon­don af­ter be­ing hos­pi­talised for “se­ri­ous on­go­ing is­sues” with his men­tal health.

His man­age­ment later re­vealed that he was “re­ceiv­ing around-the-clock care and is in the safest pos­si­ble place”.

A re­port in Hot Press claimed that Gin­ger had spent a night in po­lice cus­tody fol­low­ing an al­ter­ca­tion with an au­di­ence mem­ber at an acous­tic show in Ire­land. Gin­ger later tweeted that he had at­tempted sui­cide.

Last year Gin­ger recorded a track called Fuck You Brain with his friend Ryan Hamil­ton to high­light sui­cide preven­tion and raise men­tal health aware­ness, with pro­ceeds go­ing di­rectly to the Sa­mar­i­tans.

The 52-year-old promised that a tour with his ex­treme band Mu­ta­tion will take place in a few months, stat­ing: “Mu­sic is a cathar­sis; a way of chan­nelling the ag­gres­sion and des­per­a­tion that I’m cur­rently ex­pe­ri­enc­ing.”

Clas­sic Rock wishes Gin­ger well, and re­mem­ber if you need to talk to some­body about a sim­i­lar prob­lem, con­tact the Sa­mar­i­tans by call­ing 116 123 or by vis­it­ing sa­mar­i­tans.org. The ser­vice is free. DL
