Dougie is the bass player and backing vocalist of british pop-rock band McFly. He has co-writer credits on many of McFly's tracks, including the lead writer credit on their 2007 number one single "Transylvania". Poynter also wrote an unrecorded track called Silence Is A Scary Sound, which is featured as a live recording on their third studio album Motion In The Ocean. Poynter was 15 when he joined the band. Because of his young age, Dougie and the other members of McFly hold the record for the youngest band to ever have a debut album go straight to number one, a record previously held by The Beatles.

The McBusted tour starts in just a few days and I was wondering what original McBusted songs would you like the boys to play on the tour. Just for curiosity. So please vote on the poll below!! Air Guitar and Get Over It are not on the list because it’s obvious they’re going to play them as are the singles.
A few weeks ago I asked you to send me info about the most important radio stations of your country so I could make a list to request Love Is On The Radio, well some of you sent me the info and with it and the one I already had I created a page with info of radios worldwide where you can request #LIOTR everyday and help to promote it!
Also if you know more radio stations and you want me to add them on the list just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll add them.

We bet Doc Brown and Marty never imagined that the future held this, not even in their wildest dreams….
It’s 30 years since Marty McFly and Doc Brown took us Back to The Future in the Delorean and to celebrate ITV’s got something, err, special planned.
Celebrity Juice’s own Keith Lemon (who is apparently a massive BTTF fan) is set to host a 90-minute tribute to the film, with celebrity guests stepping in to fill the original actors’ shoes as he recreates the iconic scenes.
Paddy McGuinness will be taking a leaf out of Biff’s book while Gino D’Acampo swaps the kitchen for the lab as Doc Brown. And who else but McBusted – who have basically spent their entire career paying tribute to the movie – could perform that classic song, Johnny B. Goode?
Keith Lemon’s Back to the Future Tribute will air on ITV2 in the autumn
