The Irish singer-songwriter hasn’t been in better health since breaking his pelvis in 2015. In 2021 he fell and broke his knee, before tearing his knee ligaments left, never fully recovering from his injuries.
In April, he confirmed that he “could no longer walk”.
He has also been open about his struggle with addiction and in 2015 had to get a full set of dental implants after decades of drinking and drug use destroyed his real ones.
