Lightbody wants to become a dad
Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody wants to tone down his rock 'n' roll lifestyle and become a father.
The singer has devoted the past 18 years to his group but now he's keen to step away from the spotlight and focus on his personal life.
He tells Seven Days magazine, "Is everyone's state of being not centred around love, loss and longing? In my case, it's still very much so. I'm a single man. I'm 35. Everybody that I know including my sister is having children.
"As much as I adore my niece, my godchildren and the children those around me are having, I want kids of my own. Thank God I'm calming down because I wouldn't want to be in one of those bands who disappears up his own a**ehole."
