Yep. What a claim to fame. Falling out of his own car whilst throwing up a jacket potato and running himself over. Class act.

His own manager said 'voice of a angel, brain of a gnat'.

And of his manager has anyone said "tin ear of an opportunist, parasitic nature of a leech"? Honestly, he might be a public embarassment now but he was made a public figure and obviously wasn't afforded proper media training when he was younger or he'd not have destroyed the band's kid and teen audience.

Christmas is coming, he should have a few bob coming his way from all the music channels and stations playing "Stay another day".

This bit at the end of the first article made me lol.

In 2005, long after the band's split, he hit headlines when he accidentally ran himself over with his Mercedez-Benz after eating three jacket potatoes.

Who knew jacket potatoes were so dodgy ?

Brian who?

He's making George Michael look like Howard Hughes.

He does seem to have went downhill. From the videos of him that I've watched, he comes across as being very into conspiracy theories. Very paranoid about things.

It's not even a real christmas song, just a few bells in the background.

I think perhaps maybe Brian is mentally unstable & needs help.
I don't think we should be making fun of him if there's something wrong . .
I think his fellow East 17 member Anthony Mortimer was the named writer in East 17, so Brian won't pick up any money for 'Stay Another Day', the lack of money by the looks of things is part of his problem . .
How very sad, I wish him well. .

And thats the beauty of it, bung a few bells in, dress all Christmasy and whay-ho your guaranteed being played for 2 or 3 months of the year annually.

As I recall there was a tape doing the rounds without all the Christmas add on's, if they had stuck with that one it wouldn't have enjoyed the same success as the released version.

If he gets anything, it'll be performance residuals and that won't be a huge amount at all. Tony Mortimer was the group's chief songwriter and wrote this song with two other people, so they'll always get the lion's share of the money.

The size of his house tends to confirm this

The other band member has a roofing business now, he was on Never Mind The Buzzcocks the other week. Don't blame him for not giving Brian a job, it would be like Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em !
