Lee Ryan denies ruining Dave Grohl party: 'I was pissed like the rest'

By
Blue star Lee Ryan has told Digital Spy that he did not anger Dave Grohl by 'ruining' a recent party, but is "really happy" with reports of his wild behaviour.

It was claimed that Grohl 'almost had to throw out' the 'All Rise' singer when he turned up drunk to a gathering after Grohl's band Sound City Players performed in London.

Speaking at last night's (March 25) Chortle Awards, Ryan admitted that while he was indeed "pissed like the rest of them" at the party, he has been reassured that the Foo Fighters and Nirvana musician thinks he's "a really cool guy".

"He messaged me... and he's like, 'No, I never said that'," Ryan claimed. "He messaged me through our PA and said, 'Tell Lee I'm sorry about that, I don't know where that came from, but Lee's a really cool guy, I really love him'.

"Me and him were doing shots with each other at the bar, it was wicked. For me he's such a rock legend... I didn't ruin his party, I was just pissed like the rest of them. I think what he said was, 'Lee was wrecked out of his head', and I was."

He said of the story: "I was really happy with it, if I'm honest. I've been kicked out of a few parties, but it's fun when you get kicked out. Being told to leave is great. 'Get out you're too pissed', 'Wicked'."

Ryan added that he has chosen to be more careful with his words after deliberately courting controversy in the early days of Blue.

"I definitely start thinking before I speak a lot more these days," he said. "Before I didn't really give a s**t, I used to just say stuff for the fun of it.

"And I knew it was controversial a lot of things I used to say. But you grow up and you start... being mature, and I think that just comes with age."

However, Ryan also stressed that the celebrity lifestyle can be more challenging than people think.

"You get lost a lot of the time. You don't know who to turn to," he said. "It's hard because it's not like anyone normal can understand what being famous is like.

"They think you're bitching about it, they're like, 'Shut the f**k up, you're moaning about living a champagne lifestyle and you've got girls all over you and loads of money'. People don't really see the reality of what it is."

Blue will release Roulette, their first new album in ten years, on April 15.
