British pop star also-ran and rock royalty collide
Of all the people who you’d think would be able to get under the skin of Rock’s official nice guy Dave Grohl, you’d have Blue singer Lee Ryan pretty far down the list. In fact, you’d have Blue singer Lee Ryan pretty far down the list of people who’d even be within 100 feet of the former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters front man. However, after Grohl brought his Sound City Players to London last month, to play a show at the O2 Arena, it was Ryan who somehow managed to crash the after party and turn the usually smiling rocker’s night sour.
Apparently Ryan turned up to the after party steaming drunk and proceeded to make nuisance of himself. “There was this English singer who was with us who was completely wasted” Grohl revealed to The Sun newspaper, “We almost had to throw him out” he added, before asking the interview, “Have you heard of this band, Blue?” As the penny dropped, Grohl continued “The guy kept telling us how many million records he’s sold. I was like, ‘Really? You?’” Don’t worry, Dave, it’s something we’ve all wondered.
That said, he does make good copy on Twitter. Ryan hasn’t reacted to the story, but his latest tweet did offer some profundities, as he wrote “I look but there's no chance.. I peer into the light hoping to find somewhere to lay my head in the dark. You won't see me.. You never did x”
