Boyzone star, Keith Duffy, reacts to Westlife's split
Boyzone star, Keith Duffy (pictured with the late Stephen Gately and former Westlife member, Brian McFadden), has reacted to Westlife's split, saying that he was "surprised" by their split, which they announced earlier this week.
"I wasn't surprised by the news but I was surprised by the announcement that they were breaking up...These days you can take some time off, do your own thing and then come back and make another album or whatever. So I don't understand why they announced they were splitting"
As a boyband star himself, he understands what it takes to be successful, but he told RTE that Boyzone might be doing something to celebrate their 20th anniversary:
"We finished a big tour last April but we'll never break up. We're together forever now, it's only a case of how often we work together. I think the next big thing for Boyzone will be 2013 which marks our 20th anniversary".
