Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz reveals failed suicide attempt
Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz has revealed that he made a failed attempt at suicide a few years back.
Speaking to MTV, the bassist and ‘bankface’ of the multi-platinum selling Illinois quartet revealed that his exit music of choice was the same as was famously used in a montage for the film Shrek.
"I got in my car. I remember I was listening to Jeff Buckley doing Leonard Cohen's ‘Hallelujah’ and sat there and took a bunch of [anxiety pill brand] Ativan in a Best Buy parking lot,” Wentz explained.
“I called up my manager because I was, at that point, completely out of my head with Ativan. And I was talking to him and I was slurring my words, so he called my mom and my mom called me and she came and got me and we went to the hospital."
The incident inspired the track ‘7 Minutes in Heaven (Atavan Halen)’ from 2005’s _From Under the Cork Tree longplayer.
