Struggling British boyband BLAZIN' SQUAD are hoping to boost their fanbase by targetting homosexuals. The CROSSROAD hitmakers have already lost six members from their original line-up but hope attracting a gay following could reverse their fortunes. Singer PLAT'NUM says, "We are doing a couple of gay magazines and the market is bigger. "I dunno if gay people would have accepted us before. "We don't look like a group of little boys - we're a proper boyband now and we're sure the gay audience will like us now."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
