Former Snow Patrol bass player MARK MCCLELLAND has slammed his former bandmates for never explaining his sacking from the band.
MCClelland - now a member of LITTLE DOSES - claims he has yet to speak with frontman Gary Lightbody, two years after his departure.
The 31-year-old says, "It's still an open book but I haven't had any contact with Gary.
"I still don't know the reasons why I had to leave the band, no one has told me."
Ed Sheeran has admitted the personal nature of his songs has caused him to lose a few friends.
