RIP Stephen Gately

Last night whilst celebrating the wedding of the singer Keedie, I heard the tragic news of the death of Stephen Gately from Boyzone, at the age of 33 years and following the death of Filip Nikolic of 2B3. It is another truly sad loss to the world of music,and quite an unbelievable year! Of all the boybands that Worlds Apart would find themselves sharing a backstage area or an after show party within Europe in the 90’s, Boyzone were the most fun to be around….

It is another truly sad loss to the world of music,and quite an unbelievable year! Of all the boybands that Worlds Apart would find themselves sharing a backstage area or an after show party within Europe in the 90’s, Boyzone were the most fun to be around. I remember a particularly crazy time in Germany where Keith Duffy rugby tackled me in front of 200 fans in hotel bar and they gasped thinking it was a fight, but it was just the ‘Boyzone Crack’. We had a fantastic evening and I put every drink that night on Keith’s bar tab. Stephen and the rest of the group were always so friendly, Steve , Cal and Myself want to say : “may you rest in peace Stephen, you had a brave heart and a kind soul and your brothers in Boyzone will miss you for the rest of their days as we all will.” We send out a prayer to his family and loved ones and I ask you all to do the same. God Bless you Stephen, from Worlds Apart.
