Could`ve enjoyed Boyzone days more: Keating
Los Angeles: Looking at the fun that the members of young band One Direction are having, singer Ronan Keating wishes boys of his group Boyzone would have done the same when they were together.
Boyzone was formed in 1993 and initially comprised Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham, Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch and Stephen Gately. However, it was left as a four-piece band after Gately`s death in 2009.
Keating realised the need of enjoying his stint with the band after dining with singer Niall Horan, who is part of One Direction, reports contactmusic.com.
"One Direction came on `The X Factor` and Niall and I hung out a little bit and went out for dinner. He`s a great lad. They`re living the dream, but they`re working so hard," said Keating.
"I know what it`s like when you don`t get to appreciate what you`re doing. I wish we had enjoyed those first six years of Boyzone more, but One Direction look like they`re having a good time," he added.
