Last year, when Boyzone officially reunited for the first time since 2000, I wrote: Long before 'N Sync's Lance Bass came out of the closet and crushed the hearts of 13-year-old girls around the world, Stephen Gately was actually the first boy-band member to publicly admit he was gay. obviously we want to offer our best thoughts to andy cowles at what has to be a profoundly sad moment, and we hope that better days lie ahead.
Shane Lynch (born Shane Eamon Mark Stephen Lynch; 3 July 1976) is an Irish singer-songwriter, actor and professional drift driver, best known as a member of Boyzone.
Stephen and Andy first "wed" in a Las Vegas commitment ceremony in 2003 and more formally in a civil partnership ceremony in London three years later. The Girlfriend, who is a nurse, points out that it's hard to know whether this death was a result of natural causes or not absent a toxicology report.
Two years later, at a live concert for Childline, Lynch turned to the camera and yelled: "Tabloid newspapers, you can kiss me fucking arse!Mr Dochev has spoken to police who are investigating the death.Members of Boyzone, Mr Gately's former band, returned home on Monday night after flying to the Spanish island on Sunday. They went there to pay their respects and start dealing with the fallout of the situation.In recent years he has taken up auto racing, participated in reality shows, and appeared as a judge on The All Ireland Talent Show.In 1993, music manager Louis Walsh, who had managed Johnny Logan, held auditions in Dublin to find a new boyband to rival British group Take That.
