A brother of tragic pop star Stephen Gately is about to launch his first single as a tribute to his sibling this summer.
Stephen’s youngest brother Tony Gately (30) is set to make his own mark on the pop world.He said he has decided to release his debut single this summer almost three years after the Boyzone star’s sudden death.
“I have been given an opportunity to fulfil a dream I have had for years and it is also a fitting tribute to my brother Stephen,’’ Tony said. He added that he doesn’t want to give too much away yet — including the title of the track. He has recruited Steve Coxshall, who is part of pop group Blue’s management team and a friend of the late Stephen, to help launch the single.
Tony claims he first realised he had talent as a singer when he sang during a Boyzone sound check and band manager Louis Walsh mistook him for Stephen. He is the youngest of Margaret and Martin Gately’s five kids who also include Mark, Michelle, Alan and Stephen — who died of a congenital heart defect in Mallorca, Spain, in October 2009.
Tony was raised off Sheriff Street in Dublin but he moved to Scotland in 2001 with his wife Claire. They have three sons, Josh, Adam and three-month-old infant Harry.
