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.

“IT’S a bit early to be celebrating Christmas isn’t it?” mused bah humbug Mcfly star Tom Fletcher as the bubblegum indie popsters kicked off the inaugural festive festival at the newly-opened Leeds Arena.
Perhaps he was feeling grumpy as McFly were clearly the elder-statesmen of a night when the sheer teenage exuberance exemplified by acts such as The Vamps and Rudimental made you understand that they need to broaden their horizons to a wider marketplace to continue achieving the huge success they have enjoyed so far.
Perhaps this explains the necessity for the four piece (on stage at least!) to team-up with their embryo pals Busted next year to form the so-called McBusted supergroup for a full arena tour.
And the large crowd – many decked out in tinsel and Christmas jumpers – clearly didn’t agree with spectacle-wearing Fletcher’s sentiment. Earlier in the day they had popped open the first window of their advent calendars and by jolly – and with a ho ho ho – they were here to start the party season with a bang.
But bizarre anti-Christmas comments aside the band delivered a feisty five-song set which had fans instantly on their feet. Five Colours in Her Hair sounded just like the record version while It’s All About You remains their finest moment. New single Love is on the Radio is standard-fare reminiscent of Big Country at their most commercial for those of us old enough to remember such things.
