Ø BEST THING ABOUT BEING IN BOYZONE
"We've visited countries I'd never have visited had it not been for the band, and I've met some very nice people. It's all an experience that can't be bought"
Ø FIRST TIME I REALISED I WAS FAMOUS
"I don't think I'm famous. I never ever see it that way. It's actually better to see it that way. I think maybe if I became famous in a solo thing, I'd maybe feel it then. But now I don't"
Ø ON BOYZONE FANS
"The best thing about our fans is their loyalty and support, they're so dedicated! Some of them do silly things, though. They travel all over the place to see us and that's not safe for young girls... And they know more than we do about what we're doing!"
Ø EARLIEST CHILDHOOD MEMORY:
"Being born! Honestly! I remember being asleep, all nice and snug,then the next thing I knew there was a bright light and a great big frying pan coming at me!"
