Boyzone star Stephen Gately found dead. - October 11th 2009, 10:22 AM

Quote:
Boyzone singer Stephen Gately has been found dead at the age of 33, it was reported today.

Gately was believed to have been holidaying in Majorca when he died yesterday, according to a newspaper.

A friend of Gately's told the newspaper: "It looks like he went out for a few drinks, then got back, fell asleep and never woke up."
This actually quite upset me, I know it isn't on the same scale as Michael Jackson or Patrick Swayze but for me it is quite sad. I grew up with Boyzone and Stephen Gately was always my favourite. I loved him, I actually cried as a child when I found out he was gay because I thought I was going to marry him. I also went to see him live when he played Joseph in the theatre and I was so happy when Boyzone reformed.
So this is a big part of my childhood, just gone.

Some of you may not even know who he is so...

It's sad how young he was. I remember Boyzone... they were like THE boyband of the decade. First pop songs I got to know...*sniff*

I didn't really know of him. I knew of Boyzone and liked a few songs. But still so sad because of his age and everything.

I saw this on a news ticker today.

My biggest memory of Boyzone in general is their popularity in the Philippines while I was vacationing there and listening to 'No Matter What' many times on repeat.

Am I a bad person if the first thing I thought when I heard this was "Oh no, lets hope they don't start playing Boyzone songs in rotation like they did with Jackson" ??

theres so much speculation about his death now, as i suppose is to be expected. i just hope the family can get some closure after the post mortem. :[

Apparently the post mortem results will be released tomorrow. The last thing I heard what he went on a binge drink and choked on his vomit in his sleep. Which sounds very possible, it is still very sad but it can happen to anyone quite easily.

I thought the same thing but they haven't. So far I have seen 2 music channels playing Boyzone songs all day. He obviously wasn't as big as Michael Jackson and he doesn't have a very wide audience, the would probably lose ratings by playing all Boyzone, all day.

It's stories like these which make you realise how short life really can be. When I heard about this I really couldn't believe it and was so shocked because Boyzone were pretty popular when I was growing up.

R.I.P. Stephen Gately.

I was really saddened by this news. I grew up listening to boyzone too, and it's just really strange knowing that a key member is just..gone.

I hope that he rests in peace.
