Well, it looks like another boy band has lost a founding member.
Puts me in mind of Jay, the Empire Records A&R guy in Karaoke Criminals:
“Three bands, one night. Easy, compared to normal. He was getting off light. If he hadn’t had the boy band – ‘N-TaPrize!’ – on the way through, he’d be more active.
But he had.
So he wasn’t.
They were made to measure, career already mapped: three singles, a hit album, first pre-pubescent tour, fainting teenage girls, two more singles, self-written songs, internecine rivalry, second tour and a final, musical-differences fuelled split followed by solo careers for Dave and Billy and drug dependency for Ralph; a period drying out at the Priory, closely followed by a tour of regional theatres.
The money was close enough to in the bank already.
Ah well, soul-destroying as it was, at least it wasn’t panto. Not yet.”
Not to say I told you so or anything 🙂
