IN CONVERSATION WITH DANNY JONES
MUSIC BACK TO BASICS

He is one of four members of one of the most successful bands of our generation, and with a creative record that speaks volumes, Danny Jones is becoming a symbol of what music should really be about. From the success with his band McFly, Jones has become a music producer desired by many, he not only wrote, co-wrote and produced some of McFly’s biggest hits – some of which are played on the radio to this date – but worked with One Direction composing and producing their last album together and has influenced several other artists of our times. Danny’s experience and skills have now landed him at the judging panel of The Voice Kids, on ITV, an endeavor he sees as a great platform to showcase and support young talents.

Danny’s passion for music dates from his early years when his mother got him music lessons due to his great and undeniable interest in music. He learned by doing it, spending countless hours practicing and trying out styles and beats. One thing that is clear, is that Danny Jones is not only a skillful writer and musician but one with a soul looking to tell a story. His passion, talent, and skills combined with this dazzling emotional rawness make him and his creations relatable and real, something our generation, and the one after ours, surely crave for.

We had the pleasure of meeting with Danny after his latest trip to LA to talk about music, his role as a judge at The Voice Kids and how this generation of young talents should be supported and taught. We meet with him at the Long & Waterson showroom space in Shoreditch, a beautiful and sophisticated yet relaxed new apartment development in the heart of East London. The set could not be more appropriate for this afternoon of candid and heart-warming chat with Danny.

As soon as we met outside Long & Waterson, Danny was chilled and friendly, shaking my hand and introducing himself – not that he needed any introduction as I have been a fan of his work since I was a teenager – I ask how he is doing and his answer is direct followed by a cheeky laugh, ‘I’m really well, just jet-lagged and hungry. But I am always hungry.’ We head inside the showroom and get him a healthy vegetable quiche from a nearby cafe. Once Danny had finished his ‘lunch’ we head to the grooming room where he straight-way starts a conversation with the team. Friendly, personal, and captivating.

We sit down at the living space and start chatting about his recent trip to Los Angeles, one which Jones describes as “relaxed and fun”. He tells me that he spent the first two weeks simply enjoying the city, eating burgers and drinking beer. He also attended the worldly famous music festival Coachella, seeing some bands and checking out “what the kids out there are listening to.”

Had you been to Coachella before? Never been. And I found it weird to go and have a beer and watch a band. (Laughs) Because you were in a band, is it different being on the other side? It is actually really nice because you usually hear so many bands from behind the stage and it’s just big loud beats, so to go upfront is like ‘oh, this is how we sound’, it’s kinda nice. But I just went there to see what the kids were listening to. It was interesting. When was the last time you were in LA? Two years ago. Hopefully, we’ll be back more. There are some really good vibes there.

I ask Danny if he found the scene in L.A to be much different from the one we see in the U.K, to which he replied; “I feel like maybe people get more excited over there. Maybe your crazy thoughts and dreams are a bit more out there.” Jones feels that in the U.K, artists tend to play with rawness and emotions more than in the U.S, they wish to tell a story and often don’t need to create a super complicated melody or over the top production as they rely on the emotional element in their songs.

“I find British musicians quite passionate and they create music to be personal. I love being moved by music. My idols are all kind of storytellers. Specially Springsteen. I listen to his music and I see him as an actor and I think ‘How does he find inspiration to write all these songs?’. I know that he watches a lot of documentaries and movies or he gets obsessed with something and I think he puts himself in those situations he is watching. He has character and I think, I need to do that. In the band, we sort of had some of those extensions from reality, from experiences we had and we used to chip in when writing a song, because we were in four, so we would bring our own personal experiences to the table.” …keep reading.

As we all know Dougie is a huge fan of David Attenborough so being able to work with him in this project about something close to him I bet was like if we meet him and the rest of the boys.

Richmond Park is being destroyed by over 5.5 million visitors every year – Sir David Attenborough is here to save the day (with a little help from Dougie Poynter).

Richmond Park, National Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest is sadly struggling to cope with increasing amounts of visitors. The very fabric of the park and its wildlife are under more and more pressure to survive the 5.5 million people who every year flock to enjoy its space and beauty. Grasslands and trees are damaged and the animals’ habitats are being destroyed more than ever before.

Cue National Treasure, Sir David Attenborough, who as a local resident to the park is spear heading a campaign to encourage people to “Tread Lightly” when visiting.

“As visitors, we can all help to protect it through simple actions so that it remains a very special place for the enjoyment of future generations,” he said.

The super-team behind the BBC’s Planet Earth, Frozen Planet and Madagascar have brought the park to life in a short film – exert shown exclusively here on GQ.co.uk – as part of Sir David’s message to the public.

Also spreading the word on behalf of the charity, ‘Friends of Richmond Park’ is resident and musician, Dougie Poynter. Dougie is a keen naturalist and has previously worked on extensive environmental and conservation projects. He says, “working with Sir David Attenborough has been like hanging out with God Himself”. We can believe it.

Often taken for granted, our parks play a such a vital role in preserving wildlife. People need to take more care and remember that with further neglectful behaviour, these spaces of huge natural importance will be destroyed and lost for good. Dougie sums up the campaign, ‘take nothing from the Park, leave nothing behind and please, Tread Lightly’.

It’s 4:30 am and I can’t sleep. It’s not that usual insomnia involving tossing and turning for no apparent reason. It’s not the ‘Oh my God my heart is going to explode because I’m so wired and uncomfortable in my own skin from the partying’ type of insomnia that I haven’t experienced in six years either. I’m wide awake at 4:30 am because I’m a few hours away from sharing a car and sitting on a panel with the voice of God himself, Sir David Attenborough — later today, we will be previewing his new short film about the conservation of Richmond Park.

Finally I fall asleep. A few hours later I’m standing out front of my house, waiting for the car to pick me up. At 8:55 am, a sleep deprived mess of a Dougie Poynter, complete with a fossilized dinosaur poop in hand, steps into the car — I brought the poop along incase I ran out of things to talk about. At 8:56 am we arrive at Sir David’s house where he’s ready to go with his distinctive white whispy hair, dressed in a navy blazer with khaki pants. He greets me with a beaming smile and a very comfy shake, “Hello”. I remind him that we briefly met on The Graham Norton Show where I first admitted to him that I moved to Richmond after a Google search of his residence, which he thankfully remembers and doesn’t find too creepy.

To rewind a bit, shortly after getting sober and looking for a fresh start, I began to look for a new place to live. I sat at my computer and Googled “Where does David Attenborough live?” I thought to myself, “Wherever Attenborough lives must be the most serene and green place in London”. So after searching for the perfect place I eventually found myself living in Richmond, home of Sir David Attenborough himself. He was right. Richmond kicks ass — the park, the deer, the river, the Mick Jagger… it was the perfect place to move when looking for a fresh start; and today is the day I get to indulge in my adulation for both the park and Sir David.

Off we go on what feels like a surreal dream narrated by my childhood hero; the man behind Planet Earth. Within minutes, I pull out the dinosaur poop fossil. After a quick glance and a study, he tells me that it’s probably not real because dinosaur droppings would fall with a splat much like cow droppings. Sh*t! Five minutes in and, one, I’ve already used my wild card, and two, I’m realising I’ve been duped! Great. My voice gets jittery, my mouth goes dry, my lips are sticking to my teeth and my nose starts tingling. Thankfully he doesn’t seem to notice.
