Well one of them is trying it solo at "Canadian Idol"

quote:
Once upon a time a band called The Moffatts became a Canadian teen pop sensation that made four brothers - oldest Scott, and triplets Clint, Bob and Dave - household names. In October, 2001, the group broke up. Why? Dave realized he was gay and left home.

Apparently he didn't speak to his father/manager for over a year. He went back to school at the University of Winnipeg, decided to become an actor/model, hosted a karaoke night at a local gay bar and he's finally back in the limelight trying his luck as a contestant on Canadian Idol.

"I've never pursued anything solo before," he says. "I'd really like to see if my voice can make it to the Top-10." He's made it to the Top 32 and voters will begin deciding next week whether or not that will happen. Go Dave!


There's several links on this one. Go to the queerday site to get 'em; I'm too lazy...

It frightens me that I read the thread title, and yes, I do remember The Moffats.

I'm tempted to tell a childhood story about the Moffat boys. By childhood, I mean it comes from 1947.

Ok. I will. You forced me.

It had to be before 1948, because that is the year we moved to Medicine Hat. Before that, we were wee kids in Calgary, on the North Hill. Across the street lived the Moffat boys, in a big house that fascinated my two-year-old self because it had all-round balconies and porches and outside stairs, unlike any other house on the street. And the boys were ... y'know, boys. Like, objectionable, but not scary.

I can see that house still, although I wasn't three yet when we moved away.

Anyway, I was at the time afraid of thunder and lightning. So my mum would say to me, whenever the thunder started, "Don't worry. It's just the Moffat boys banging their heads together."

What can I tell you? It worked.

And that's the true story of me and the Moffat boys.

asterix, you can't be telling me that you are one of those Moffat boys.

You are far too young.

You're not a grandbaby, are you?

Heh, skdadl, no...I was making a joke in response to the original post. "Bang Bang Boom" is the name of one of the boyband-Moffatts' songs.

Was it them or Hanson that actually had a song that sounded good?

It was really grown up sounding with decent lovey-dovey lyrics.
