Babyshambles split... again

As Babyshambles head out onto their arena tour, the line-up has already shifted, with returning guitarist Patrick Walden quitting again without playing a note.

He got as far as the Manchester MEN arena, but didn't make the stage:

Speaking exclusively to NME.COM, guitarist Mick Whitnall said that "complications" caused Walden's sudden change of heart.

"He came up to Manchester on the tourbus with us, he was going to come out and play on a couple of songs, but there were complications and he had to go home. Personally, I just found it all a bit strange," he said.

If you're in Babyshambles, and things appear strange to you, they must be very rum indeed.
