I had become pretty outspoken about my frustrations at the direction the band was going in, and I'm sure he was starting to find me a pain. She was comforted by members of The Magic Numbers and has not spoken to Rice since the incident. She has since described the split as the best thing that has ever happened to her.Rice called her mobile phone on-stage in front of thousands of people at the final gig of that tour in Marlay Park, Dublin.
