I’m not sure how you can be 33-years old and still be considered to be in a boy band, but Stephen Gately (front center), member of the “boy band” Boyzone(real subtle), died this weekend while on vacation in Majorca Spain. Cause of death is unknown. E! Online reports:
“We are truly sorry to confirm that Stephen tragically died yesterday whilst on holiday, with his partner Andrew in Majorca,” the site said. “We are unable to give any other details at this time.” His bandmates Ronan Keating, Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham and Shane Lynch said in a statement: “We are completely devastated by the loss of our friend and brother, Stephen. We have shared such wonderful times together over the years and were all looking forward to sharing many more. Stephen was a beautiful person in both body and spirit. He it up our lives and those of the many friends he had all over the world. Our love and sympathy go out to Andrew and Stephen’s family. We will love you and will miss you forever, ‘Steo’.” The 33-year-old shook up the pop world ten years ago when he announced he was gay. The Irish pop group had a huge teenage female fan base at the time and had sold millions of albums before splitting in 2000. The band reunited in 2008 for a successful tour. Gately and his partner Andrew Cowles wed in a civil union in 2006.
I have no idea who any of these people are and you could drive a stake through my balls and I still couldn’t name any of their songs, but I’d like to take this time to give my condolences to his family. Especially since gay people don’t go to heaven.
I think this is one of their songs:
