"I was so depressed, I was going to cut my wrists," Brian reveals to Club. "I didn't think I could get into any more trouble but the papers portrayed me as such a loser. I'm nothing like that." Now relaunched under the snappy name E-17, Brian's back with the band and out to prove there's life after drugs. ——————————————————————————————————1/5—— by Fiona Sandiford  BRIAN'S SUICIDAL THOUGHTS >>> Angst Mates TV Plus OnLine

"It's not easy being in the limelight so young. You can't just switch off the media attention when you're having a bad day. I'm wary of the press now." Being a dad has made him grow up, too. "I'm a better dad than I thought I'd be," says the chuffed E-17 singer. ——————————————————————————————————4/5—— Say it again, Sam! 144 Peeping tom 146 TEDDY SHERINGHAM EXCLUSIVE p141 Angst Mates TV Plus OnLine
