The singer has admitted he struggled to cope after Peaches died after a heroin overdose in 2014.
Speaking about his grief, the Boomtown Rats frontman told The Mirror: “I’d make lists and keep working at the writing of those lists until the upside overwhelmed the downside.
Luckily, Bob was talked around by a friend, revealing: “I had the sanity, luckily, to phone a friend and tell him, ‘Look I think I’m just starting to get irrational’.
Adding of how his close friends had helped him through the aftermath of Peaches' death, Bob said: "Men and women are very different. Women want you to talk everything out whereas with men it's good enough if we're just each other.
Peaches was found dead at the home she shared with husband Thomas Cohen and their two sons, Astala and Phaedra, in April 2014.
It was later revealed that she had overdosed on heroin, tragically dying in the same way as her mother, Paula Yates, did in 2000.
Since Peaches' death, Bob has found tied the knot with long-term partner, Jeanne Marine, who he married last year.
He previously claimed that proposing to her had helped him come to terms with the loss of his daughter, explaining to an Irish radio station that he "couldn't have survived" without her.
"We could either let time do its thing [to heal the grief], but time doesn't heal, it just accommodates," he told RTE Radio One.
"You just push it [grief] to the side until it forces its way to your foreconscious again, and then you have to move it and place it back to this deep dark dungeon.
"I thought, 'I have to do something.'"
