One Minute With... Kelly Jones, Stereophonics
Friday 05 December 2008
Where are you?
I'm in London. I just finished a tour all over the world – and I'm recovering from last night.
What are you currently listening to?
A Mazzy Star album. The Kings of Leon album Only by the Night and Oasis's latest, Dig Out Your Soul. Noel Gallagher played us a few tracks in a studio a month ago.
Who is your favourite band?
It's always been AC/DC.
If you could have written one song, which would it be?
"My Generation" by The Who. It covers all bases of letting go.
What distracts you from work?
My two daughters, four and two years old – but in a very good way. Their innocence grounds me.
Who is your greatest inspiration?
Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Sex Pistols. Our band is a mixture of all those things, really.
The song that changed my life is...
"Simple Man" by Graham Nash – that was my dad's single
Who is your hero?
Jack Nicholson as there doesn't seem to be any vanity. He is sexy because he isn't hiding anything.
Stereophonics are touring to 20 December (www.stereophonics.com)
