The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue says he went ‘off the rails’ after death of bandmate Mark Sheenan

The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue says he went “off the rails” after the death of his bandmate Mark Sheenan.

The guitarist died following a short illness back in April 2023 at the age of just 46.

Appearing on ITV’s Lorraine on Thursday (23 May) to promote a new tour, O’Donoghue opened up about the devastating impact Sheenan’s death had on him.

The lead singer said: “I went off the rails after Mark passed away. I was drinking and smoking and went on a mental block. I had writer’s block for a long time.”
