Nash’s comments came after his son Tristen Nash passed away aged just 26-years-old back in October. Tristen was a musician and a poet and had been working with his father on his Kliq This podcast shortly before his untimely death.
During the conversation about his wellbeing Nash said that “time flies when you’ve got a gun in your mouth” before discussing his life without his son.
“Every morning when I wake up, the first thing that happens is, I come to the realization that instead of there being three human beings in my home, there’s now two. And the third person isn’t on vacation or staying with friends, or is out late. He is never coming back. And then I sit up in the bed and I have absolutely nothing I have to do, and it’s like, ‘so, why am I getting out of bed?’”
