Boyzone’s journey over three decades: Ronan Keating shares insights and memories 

In a nostalgic conversation marking 30 years since the formation of the legendary Irish boy band Boyzone, Ronan Keating shared insights and memories from the group’s remarkable journey. Magic Radio presenter and former Boyzone singer Ronan Keating sat down with co-host Harriet Scott to discuss the band’s highs and lows, personal reflections, and the enduring impact of Boyzone. 

Corrected Ronan Keating 1

Boyzone, a quintessential boy band comprising Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham, Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch, and the late Stephen Gately, reached the impressive milestone of 30 years since their inception. To commemorate this achievement, Harriet Scott engaged in a heart-to-heart with Ronan Keating. 

The 90s Phenomenon 

During the interview, Ronan Keating reminisced about the band’s meteoric rise in the 90s, selling an astounding six million albums and 7.8 million singles in the UK alone. This period marked a significant chapter in the band’s history, defining their legacy. 

The Toilet Meeting That Shaped Boyzone’s Destiny 

Ronan Keating revealed a pivotal moment in Boyzone’s history when the band members decided to take a break from their whirlwind music career in 1999. He recounted, “We had all decided we wanted a break from it. The pressure cooker was so intense… we had a meeting in the toilet that we would take a break. The five of us agreed it.” 

Ronan’s Solo Journey and Extended Hiatus 

The hiatus became a seven-year separation, mainly due to Ronan Keating’s successful solo career. “The break led to a seven-year break up because of my choices. I was riding a solo wave, and it was incredibly important to me,” he explained. 

Boyzone’s Continued Journey After Stephen Gately’s Tragic Passing 

Following the untimely death of Stephen Gately in 2009, Boyzone continued to create music despite the profound loss. Ronan Keating admitted that it was a challenging period for the band, as it never felt quite the same without Stephen. “For me, that was the end of the band all together… it always felt like something was missing,” he reflected. 

Remembering Stephen Gately 

Ronan Keating shared his sadness at losing Stephen Gately at the young age of 33. He recalled Stephen’s excitement about a Disney movie, “The Princess and the Frog,” and how he never had the chance to watch it. “I still haven’t been able to watch it to this day… none of us have gotten over it, but at least we have the songs,” he expressed. 

Boyzone’s remarkable journey, with its highs and lows, remains a cherished part of music history, and Ronan Keating’s candid reflections offer a poignant glimpse into the band’s enduring legacy.
