Australia’s Beat magazine chatted with former Boyzone star Ronan Keating who gushed about the success he’s been enjoying… at least outside of America. “I was a dreamer when I was a kid, but now I go for it. I never thought my hopes and dreams would take me this far,” he said. “To be in a place like Jakarta and Korea and hear your song on the radio is bizarre. My solo career is bigger there than Boyzone ever were. The buzz is bigger and I’m selling more records, but the hysteria’s calmed down, maybe it’s happens to all boy bands.”
Former Boyzone star Mikey Graham mailed the Sun to tell fans thanks for their concern over his nervous breakdown last June. Graham revealed, “Most of you know I have been unwell of late. Last year, after an exhaustive period of promoting both Boyzone and my own projects, I finally collapsed and felt completely burned out. I truly regret that this occurred right when the tour and the album were set to be launched.”
