Boyzone's Gately tribute

Boyzone are working on a album in tribute to former band-mate Stephen Gately, who died last month while on holiday on the island of Majorca with his partner Andrew Cowles.

Their new record will feature two songs that include vocals he laid down before his death, one of which will probably be a single, if the marketing men have their wicked way with the record. Still, Ronan Keating is pleased that his friend will be getting his final work out there for fans to hear.

‘He was so excited about this, he actually texted me just before he went out on the night he died and he said he couldn't wait to get started,’ he told Sky News. ‘I had never seen Stephen so full of life, so happy, so healthy and just so alive. That's what's making his death all the harder for us.’
