Keating: "I wanted to be in Oasis or Blur or U2"

Boyzone star Ronan Keating wanted to be in "Oasis or Blur or U2" when he was growing up.

Speaking to Australian website news.com.au, Keating said: "When I was 16, I didn't want to be in a boy band. I wanted to be in Oasis or Blur or U2."

The Life is a Rollercoaster singer added: "But as you get older, you realise this is all fun and you shouldn't take yourself so seriously."

Keating said that he considers his Boyzone bandmates to be like family: "Boyzone are my brothers. We're men now - fathers. It's not about making money and that whole game anymore. We enjoy being together, having a laugh, and being the band we need to be."
