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.

Not together this time, like

​BIG NEWS, GUYS. You know how Busted are going on this proper reunion tour with Charlie Simpson next month? Well we’ve never really known what to call it, to be honest; but the boys have just announced that it’s called *drumroll* the Pigs Can Fly tour.

Yup – Matt, James and Charlie will be performing all the old faves (oh, we’re *too* excited for ‘3AM’) in arenas up and down the country this May; and they’re gonna be joined by special guests Wheatus and Emma Blackery. No biggie.

Oh, and in further news we might be getting a McFly tour later this year but MORE ON THAT LATER.
Chatting about the tour, Charlie Simpson said: “We’re calling the tour ‘Pigs Can Fly’ because it just goes to show that anything can happen. None of us thought we’d ever tour together again, and it’s been an amazing journey getting back to this point. We can’t wait to get out on the road​.”

So there you go. Can’t bloody wait, us.

In similarly-exciting news, McFly’s Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones surprised a fan with a performance at London Palladium *and* apparently mentioned said fan going to see them on tour later this year. CARNAGE ENSUED as the fandom went bitshit bonkers over it.

GAH PLEASE BE TRUE.

If you’d almost forgotten that McFly play music, what with their Strictly Come Dancing and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Outta Here! winning antics, don’t fret. They still know how to riff their way through pop-y, rocky, catchy tunes about girls with colours in their hair.

Made up of the rehab hopping, razor-cheek boned bassist Dougie Poynter, floppy haired lead singer Tom Fletcher (who just married his childhood sweetheart, cue a whole lot of ‘awws’),marathon running drummer Harry Judd and Danny Jones, (you know, the guitarist everyone used to fancy until Dougie became king of ITV’s jungle), the band are currently in the midst of their memory lane ‘Best of McFly’ tour.

Launching to manufactured pop success in 2003, the foursome started out like (and then outlived) Busted, and have survived, setting up their own record label, Popstar to Operastar (looking at you, Danny) and even the truly awful, trashy American teen movie Just Like You featuring Lindsey Lohan.

They’ve got five albums to their name – which, by the way, was ripped from Marty McFly in Back to the Future – and a shed’s worth of Smash Hits awards from their early days, not to mention the fact they somehow snatched the record of youngest band ever to reach number one in the album charts from The Beatles. The Beatles!

They might be a bit saccharine and a bit cheesy, but at least they avoided the dreaded Westlife route into boybandom, i.e. white linen suits and videos staring out into the distance. McFly are much more worthy of jumping about manically on the dance floor at the Corn Exchange. As most mums would say, they just seem like a lovely bunch of lads.

:: McFly, Cambridge Corn Exchange, Tuesday, May 7 at 7.30pm. Tickets £27.50 from (01223) 357 851 / www.cornex.co.uk

Pop superstars McFly have today announced that they will be hitting the road once again in Spring next year for their Best of McFly Tour. They will be playing 18 shows across the UK in April and May, beginning in Swindon on Friday 19th April and ending at London’s Wembley Arena on Saturday 18th May.

McFly are undoubtedly one of the most significant pop groups of the past decade. During this time, their 5 studio albums have racked up cumulative sales of over 10 million, seven UK No.1 singles, five top 10 albums and numerous sell out tours. 2011 also saw a double reality win as McFly took over UK TV screens with Harry winning Strictly Come Dancing and Dougie I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

And it doesn’t stop there. With over 3 million Twitter followers collectively, the band solidified their online presence when they launched their unique and unrivalled ‘Super City’ website in 2010. The site offers unprecedented access to the band worldwide, uniting their fan base which stretches from the Far East to Australia to Brazil and South America.

The Best of McFly Tour will be in support of their latest release Memory Lane.
