Messages on his Twitter feed in recent days — now removed — hinted at his mental state.

]]>The day after her death, he posted an emotional message: “I’m letting my followers know my mother passed away yesterday if it she had not me nor would you RIP mumxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx…”

Five days ago, he tweeted: “Been a fu***ing awful week but my friends have been great but now i have to some how pull myself together and finish with the …HELLS ANGELS & PROLIFiIC DEAMONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
However, a tweet from Feb 1 indicates he may have been depressed for much longer. “From heaven to hell and back again, life is a funny thing. beauty can come from the most strangest of places even the most disgusting places.” His profile was removed from the site after his death.
In a 2004 Guardian interview between Joyce McQueen and her son, she asked him: “What is your most terrifying fear?”  
McQueen replied “dying before you.” “Thank you son,” said Joyce. “What makes you proud?” 
He replied: “You.”
