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.

[x2]CANDIDS > 2017 > FULL MONTY REHEARSALS, LONDON – FEBRUARY 15

The ITV special will be a tribute to the Full Monty to celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary

MCFLY singer Harry Judd, Towie’s Elliott Wright and more will strip naked as part of a Full Monty tribute show on ITV.

The stars will be joined by dancer Wayne Sleep, Emmerdale’s David Metcalfe actor Matthew Wolfenden and Olympic swimmer Mark Foster after The Sun exclusively revealed that the film’s 20th anniversary will be marked with an ITV special in April.

Pointless presenter Alexander Armstrong will host the show, and it will end with six stars taking their clothes off at the London Palladium.

A source previously said: “The six who do sign up will be whipped into shape before performing their routine at a working men’s club in Sheffield in April.

“They will have to pluck up courage for the big reveal. But ITV are expecting the cast will get into the spirit and won’t be tempted to leave their hats on.”

Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo will prepare the stars for the show, which is supported by charities Movember, Cancer Research, Everyman and Prostate Cancer UK.

The stars were pictured for the first time as they arrived for rehearsals in London today.

The source went on: “As far as the team are concerned, this is a chance to celebrate a classic movie moment and raise awareness for charity.

“They are hoping that will appeal to the celebs they have in their sights.

“If they get the right people, they are certain the show will go down a storm with viewers, and give a real boost to all of the charities now involved.”

The Full Monty, which starred Robert Carlyle as the leader of a motley crew of unlikely strippers, was a box office smash when it was released in 1997.

Despite a budget of under £3million, it made over £200million in ticket sales and was later adapted into a musical in 2000 and a play in 2013.

Tom’s videos never disappoint:)

McFly’s Tom Fletcher has created a video to celebrate his wife Giovanna’s birthday, and it’ll melt even the coldest of hearts.

After delivering a musical wedding speech for the ages and a Mother’s Day video to make everyone rethink their Michael Buble purchases, the 31-year-old has whipped up another reel to raise expectations of men everywhere.

This time, Tom has decided to celebrate his wife Giovanna’s 32nd birthday in a video titled ‘All About Gi’ – which brings together all the highlights of her career and personal life into one adorable package.

Starting from when they met at school aged 13, the video journeys through old photographs as they traverse their relationship – marking major milestones such as moving in together, getting married and having kids.

Speaking about their first meeting, Tom said: ‘We first met at school. We were both 13 and just by chance our surnames began with the same letter, me Fletcher, she Falcone, which meant fate brought us together in assembly on her first day at school.

‘And it was on that exact same spot that I proposed and we got engaged. That spot held a lot of significance and relevance that we didn’t know at the time.’

After the video cycles through footage of the pair growing up together, Tom lays the final emotional smackdown to ensure husband envy worldwide.

‘I’m not really one to celebrate my own birthday, but I think as we get older, and as I see you getting older, I really start to see the importance of celebrating it.

‘A whole year has gone by in your life and if you look back at what you’ve achieved in just this year, since your last birthday, I mean it’s pretty amazing.

‘And if that’s not something to celebrate, then, what is?’

2-4-1 Pizza Express isn’t going to cut it this year, is it? Heaven’s sake, Tom.

First of all, Merry Xmas everyone!!!
And as a gift for you all this xmas, here’s a new interview and photoshoot of Dougie with 1883 Magazine, he talks McFly, tour, LA, acting… you can see by yourself reading it below. I also added all the pics from the photoshoot to the gallery so you can enjoy the view too:P

All the credit for the pics goes to Asia Werbel.

[x19]PHOTOSHOOTS > 2016 > 1883 MAGAZINE PHOTOSHOOT

Dougie Poynter first burst onto the scene back in 2004 as one quarter of beloved pop band McFly when he was just a young teen. In their career, spanning over fourteen years, the band has amassed 19 top 10 singles, 5 albums and have just completed their 14th tour in September, after postponing it due to Harry Judd slipping a disc.

1883 caught up with McFly’s charming bass guitarist, after making him swing from a few metal poles, to talk the recent tour, being a musical influence, warming up in LA and what the actual hell is a Mary Berry!

Hey, thanks for swinging around on those metal poles for us.

[Laughs] No problem!

At least you don’t have to go to the gym today. That’s arm day done!

Working out I usually suck at it but that was the one thing I’m actually good at.

So, today’s shoot was fine for you then!

Yeah, if it was anything to do with legs, I would’ve sucked.

Leg day is awful though.

Leg is horrible! But I’m constantly doing leg day though, because these things just will not get any bigger.

Oh, really?

I’m an ectomorph.

What’s that?

It one of the figures, there’s like ectomorph and endomorph. I’m definitely ectomorph, I just burn it all off.

That’s convenient at Christmas time, you can just pig out and its fine.

Yeah but not for a dude though, but I guess so [laughs].

So, you’ve finished touring…

Yeah finished touring about three months ago, is it three? I think it’s three months ago now.

And you’ve just released your live album called anthology off the back of that, so how was touring as just McFly instead of as a super group?

Touring was cool, it was really cool. It’s always good fun to hang with the guys it was going form a really big production that was McBusted which was like every single song had some kind of big production element to it. To go back to literally like zero production. In fact, I think we didn’t even have a truck on this tour we just had like a trailer with just amplifiers in it. We didn’t take our own PA we just used the house PA.

Did it feel weird to return to four after 18 months as being a pretty big group?

No actually because McBusted was 18 months McFly has been 13, 14 years. So, it didn’t really feel weird at all.

How did it feel revisiting some of your older songs, some of which you have never played live before?

The most stressful thing was playing 66 songs in total over three nights, I mean that’s a lot to remember.

Were there any songs where you forgot the chords and the lyrics?

Oh, yeah there was some songs I hadn’t played since I was 16. The only thing that was going through my head the entire time was don’t fuck up! Don’t fuck up! Don’t fuck up!

I mean that’s a pretty solid motto! How did you think your music has evolved and changed with you?

Sorry, my hands smell odd, probably swinging from the poles. But yeah everything seems to be a reaction to the previous. In every single way from the way we play it to the types of songs that they are. Everything is a reaction to the last one right up until our last album that we released six years ago.

Do you think they represent the stages of your life you were at when you made them or not?

I think you can definitely tell like what was going through our heads. I mean they’re all about girls [laughs].

Since this tour was about looking back over what you’ve done, what would you say to your younger self?

Mmhhh. I don’t know there’s a lot but is it really a good idea to go back in time and change things? I don’t know.

Umm, whatever it is don’t do it. If you think it’s a bad idea it probably is.
…keep reading.

They will bring their Anthology tour to Birmingham with headline dates between September 21 and 23.

These shows were rescheduled from June, after Harry Judd sustained an acute disc herniation.

At the time, Harry said: “I’m absolutely gutted that we’ve had to postpone the tour. I’ve honestly tried everything to make it work, but I’d never want to do a tour where I wouldn’t be able to give you guys the 110 per cent performance you deserve every night.”

McFly are one of the most significant pop groups of the past 15 years. Their five studio albums have racked up sales of more than 10 million and they have had seven UK No1 singles, five Top 10 albums and numerous sell-out tours – both by themselves and with supergroup, McBusted.

Now Tom, Dougie, Harry and Danny are back with The Anthology Tour. Playing three nights each concert will feature a different set list from a different McFly album, alongside some of the band’s biggest hits.

The first night will feature songs from Room On The Third Floor, the second songs from Wonderland and Motion In The Ocean and the third songs from Radio:ACTIVE and Above The Noise

The All About You band are ready to begin writing tracks for their upcoming LP – after SCRAPPING a lot of new songs.

The 5 Colours In Her Hair pop rock band – made up of Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd – have kept fans waiting for the follow-up to 2010’s Above The Noise, but it’s finally time to get back to writing as a group.

After completing a record in Texas, the boys switched their focus to McBusted, putting out a self-titled album with pals James Bourne and Matt Willis before touring the UK as a six-piece.

However, they’re now ready to put the focus back on McFly and revealed to Mirror Celebs that they already have a plan in place.

Harry confirmed they will kick start work on the record over the next few months, with Tom adding: “New year, new album. We’ll start writing [in January].”

Fans hoping to listen to the elusive album six will have to wait a little longer, with the group explaining they will start writing from scratch for the new LP.

“We’ve got album songs that could be ready to go, we don’t want to take away that exciting part of being in a band,” Tom said.

“[But album six] was natural, it didn’t sound anything like Above The Noise… We recorded it live as much as possible, in one take… I imagine the next album will be mostly new songs.”

However, McFly – who confirmed the tracks from the scrapped album will most likely be released in some form – did reveal that fans have actually already heard a song from the Texas sessions.

Harry said: “One of the songs from album six ended up on the McBusted album, which was Getting It Out. We recorded it in Texas but then recorded it for the McBusted album.”
