My Fantasy Band: Danny O'Donoghue, The Script
Friday 17 September 2010
Vocals - Sting
I want him from the Police days, he was amazing then. He always has this look on his face that he's thinking about every lyric, that he knows something that you don't. With his melodies he mixed reggae with modern-day pop music and ska and stuff which I thought was an incredible mix for someone to do.
Guitar - The Edge
He has come up with some of the most innovative guitar playing of the last 10 to 15 years, he really speaks through his guitar.
Bass - Paul McCartney
There aren't too many people out there who are multi-faceted, who can play all these different things, can write on guitar or piano and also be known as the bassist in the Beatles. Unbelievable.
Drums - Keith Moon
There's no one else in the world who can be that single-handedly messed up on drugs and play as well as Keith Moon.
Keys - Elton John
You have to have some controversy in the band and I think in today's day and age, for example if Simon Cowell was putting a band together, he'd put someone like Elton in there to mix things up a bit. He loves the controversy, he's got real balls. This band would be a circus.
The Script's new album, 'Science & Faith', is on release now. thescriptmusic.com
