Arctic Monkeys… They were discussed even before the release of their first album “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not”. A little over a year ago was released the last (and, in our opinion, the strongest) album under the title “AM”.
When Arctic Monkeys were just starting to play, journalists were constantly asking about the origin of such an extraordinary name. Musicians almost always came up with different stories about it. And actually, it was a Guitarist Jamie Cook initiative, as he had always dreamed of playing in a band with the same name.
His first guitar Alex Turner received in early 2001. But by the time of the formation of the group he could confidently played it.
Alex Turner always clashed with his colleagues on the British independent scene. For example, in 2008 at a concert “The Kooks” he tried to turn off the guitar of the vocalist Luke Pritchard. As a result, there was a huge conflict.
The front man, Alex Turner, wrote the song «Fluorescent Adolescent» together with his ex-girlfriend Johanna Bennett, who is now married to Matthew Folovill from Kings of Leon. The couple came up with the track during their holidays on the Mediterranean.
Did you know that Alex Turner has written the story, which he read out for Late Night Tales collection? It’s true.
Did you notice the last his look?
Last Turner’s image (with licked hair) came from the King of Rock and Roll. “In the end, I’m the singer! I saw a picture of Elvis and I thought that I could do well, “- admitted the front man of Arctic Monkeys.
