I regret to inform you all that the rumors of East 17 splitting up are true. After speaking with terry and john, we came to the decision that we would no longer work together anymore.
I would like to say thank you to terry and john for sticking with it for as long as they did, god knows it hasnt been easy for us, and i think if im honest, that its been the constant knock backs and bad publicity that has knocked everyones confidence in believing that we can still make it, but now, it really is over, and im absolutly gutted.
Towards the end i really felt like we were all brothers, and had been thru so much pain together, i thought nothing would break us, but it has and that day when East 17 finally ends has come.
Lastly, i would like to thank tony mortimer for letting me in the band in the first place. i have had some very interesting years, seen a lot of stuff that i would not have if it had not been for East 17, some good, some bad but i wouldnt change one thing. in my head this has all been for a reason, it has changed my views of the world that i live in and i finally feel that im ready to put everything i have learned to the test and see if i have what it takes cos i love music and i will keep making it to the best of my ability for as long as it takes.
I want to thank all of our loyal fans for your support thru the years, REMEMBER YOU MADE US WHAT WE WERE AND I THANK YOU FOR THAT BECAUSE YOU MADE EAST 17 MASSIVE, BIGGER THAN I EVER THOUGHT IT COULD BE. YOU HAVE BEEN UNBELIEVABLE, AND I WILL NEVER FORGET THAT, THANK YOU SO SO MUCH, YOU ALL MADE OUR LIVES EXCITING...
Well, thats all for now but i wish everyone the best
No love lost...
