"I think Boyzone should probably have had a psychiatrist at the height of our fame," ponders Shane. "We were young and it's ridiculous when you look back. It's a fierce dangerous thing to be in as a kid."
And to stress what a reformed character he is, and why the "kids" in One Direction should heed his advice, Shane described his next venture.
He's opening a nightclub in the UK called Ver2, named after his own brand of vodka.
Good to see Shane getting his message to abstain across, loud and clear...
