My Fantasy Band: Example

The Independent Culture

Vocals and guitar - Jack White
He's one of my favourite artists of the last 10 years. I loved Horehound last year. He's got a really interesting voice and mind boggling lyrics.

Guitar - Serge Pizzorno
I've been a massive fan of Kasabian for ages. He's not the frontman, he writes everything and he's an amazing guitarist.

Bass - Krist Novoselic
I came on to Nirvana quite late but when I first heard 'Nevermind' it was mind-blowing.

Drums - Gene Krupa
He's a legendary drummer. For my 16th birthday I got a drum kit and a video of him playing. It was the different rhythms of jazz that really amazed me.

Keyboard - M J Cole
UK garage and 2-step was a massive influence for me in my late teens. M J Cole produced one of my songs for the album and when I saw what he could do on keys, it was astounding. My line-up is a mix of classic people and current people who've had a big influence on my songwriting.

Example's single "Won't Go Quietly" is released on 18 January. He plays Dingwalls, London, on 14 January
