Keating: Boyzone Should Follow Slash's Example

Irish singer RONAN KEATING has encouraged his former BOYZONE bandmates to take inspiration from rock star SLASH - and reform the group without its original frontman.

The LIFE IS A ROLLER COASTER singer, 27, is keen to continue with his solo career and has warned ex-colleagues MIKEY GRAHAM, STEPHEN GATELY, SHANE LYNCH and KEITH DUFFY he won't reunite with the successful boyband.

But he's urged them to consider regrouping without him, in the same way former GUNS N' ROSES stars Slash, DUFF McKAGAN and MATT SORUM did to form VELVET REVOLVER - without temperamental singer AXL ROSE.

Keating explains, "They won't come back as Boyzone, as in singing and dancing, but maybe something else.

"Slash and the bassist and drummer from Guns N' Roses got back together and went on tour, but they didn't come back as Guns N' Roses."
