Howard Donald To Stay With Take That


Howard Donald has no plans to become a solo artist.

The Take That star has no desire to branch out on his own if the group - which also consists of Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Jason Orange - decide to take a break as he knows he could never compete with the success of the reformed band.

He told New! magazine: "When the band split last time, I did record a solo album, but it's not really my vibe. Could my solo work compete with us as a band? I don't think so."

Howard recently admitted he would find it difficult to cope if Take That were to split at the end of their sold-out UK stadium tour, which finished on Sunday night (05.06.09)

He said: "I think if it was all to end when the tour finishes on July 5, and it all went disastrously wrong, then it would be very hard."

But lead singer Gary revealed the group have no plans to quit and are focused on cracking the lucrative US market.

He said: "We're getting a good response and good radio play, so who knows in the future?"
