Ronan Keating reveals Boyzone's hellraising, hotel-trashing past - Daily Gossip
Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Boyzone singer Ronan Keating has revealed that the squeaky clean boyband's hellraising antics caused hoteliers across the UK to fear hosting them. The singer even claims that at one point in the '90s, "half the hotels in London" had banned the group.
"We were trashing hotel rooms," he explained. "And Keith Duffy and I went through a phase of sitting up all night drinking, then picking fights with people. We even went to a TV studio in Germany to promote a single and wrecked the place." In retrospect, Keating says he is regretful about his behaviour. "Looking back now, I've no idea what we were thinking of" (Daily Star).

From the papers:

Kasabian's Tom Meighan sported a Samurai-inspired haircut at the band's recent gig at HMV in London's Oxford Circus (Daily Star).

The Rifles quit their tour of Italy this week after drummer Grant Marsh was accused by a promoter of flirting with his wife. "We thought it was best to get out of there," singer Luke Crowther said (The Sun).

Ladyhawke says she hates it when people mistake her for an Australian rather than a New Zealander. "I am a Kiwi born and raised," she said (The Sun).

Lemar attempted to moonwalk at the Wandsworth Palais club night in south-west London (Daily Mirror).

St Lucian locals are naming a new bar there in Amy Winehouse's honour. 'Rehab' is set to open in the next few weeks (The Sun).

Agyness Deyn is apparently obsessed with Welsh rockers Raygun (Daily Mirror).

Justin Timberlake's mum wants him to make her a playlist for her iPod for Mothers Day, which takes place in America this Sunday (May 10) (Daily Star).

Little Boots has admitted that she auditioned for 'Pop Idol' when she was 16. "I wanted a shortcut to stardom," she said (Daily Record).

From NME.COM users:

Maggot from Goldie Lookin Chain, Howard Marks, Woody from Madness and Gary Crowley all watched The Specials' gig at O2 Academy Brixton last night (May 7) (from Fergie).
