East 17 Split Again
British boy band EAST 17 have announced their split - just months after reforming for a comeback London gig and album. BRIAN HARVEY and fellow band members JOHN HENDY, TERRY COLDWELL and TONY MORTIMER re-grouped in May (06) for a one-off gig after a nine year break from the industry. The STAY ANOTHER DAY hitmakers hope to capitalise on the publicity it generated to star in a documentary about the 1990s band and release a new album. However, tensions within the group have scuppered any further plans together after Mortimer was ousted following a fight with Harvey. Hendy says, "I don't think Tony's heart was in it really. There was too much of an ego clash between him and Brian."
