Ronan Keating, other Boyzone members, in Majorca after Stephen Gately’s death

Filed by Lucire staff/October 12, 2009/10.42

We do not think anyone can blame Ronan Keating if he does not appear at the Audi Centre opening in West London tonight. After the death of his colleague and former fellow bandmate, Stephen Gately, 33, in Majorca on Saturday, Keating has rushed to the Spanish town along with surviving Boyzone members Keith Duffy, Shane Lynch and Mikey Graham.
   While Lucire does not have a music beat per se, the fact Keating was part of our headline earlier today meant that we have a responsibility to address the item.
   Keating, Duffy, Lynch and Graham issued a joint statement: ‘We are completely devastated by the loss of our friend and brother, Stephen.
   ‘We have shared such wonderful times together over the years and were all looking forward to sharing many more.
   ‘Stephen was a beautiful person in both body and spirit. He lit up our lives and those of the many friends he had all over the world.
   ‘Our love and sympathy go out to Andrew and Stephen’s family. We love you and will miss you forever “Steo”.’
   On Twitter, actor Stephen Fry posted, ‘Just heard the very sad news about dear Stephen Gately. What a dreadful shock. He was loveable and sweet natured and will be hugely missed.’
