“I WAS TRAIN­ING TO JOIN THE ARMY…”

A pop­star-ready stu­dio on a yacht, com­plete with its own mil­i­tary, might seem ab­surd to some. Not to DANNY WORSNOP, though. Ob­vi­ously…

I WANTED TO BE AN AC­TOR MORE THAN A MU­SI­CIAN

“I just had no idea how to get into it. To do mu­sic, you get a cou­ple of peo­ple, form a band and start play­ing. With act­ing, you’ve got to find a way on to a stage or set and get hired. I didn’t know any­one in the in­dus­try, so I pur­sued be­ing in a band in­stead.”

I’VE BEEN BRIBED WITH CARS AND DRUGS

“Peo­ple have flown out to shows to pump al­co­hol and drugs into me when I wanted to take a break. I was deal­ing with per­sonal is­sues, but fig­ures in the in­dus­try didn’t want me to stop tour­ing be­cause that’d mean they wouldn’t get paid. I’ve been bribed with ev­ery­thing from a set of head­phones to a car, and it shows that this in­dus­try has a shitty side.”

I’M WORK­ING ON MY OWN TV PRO­GRAMME

“It’s a travel-cum-re­al­ity-cum-me-do­ing-allthe-in­sane-things-i-al­ready-do show. There’s go­ing to be lots of ex­plo­sions! We do a lot of char­ity work within it: we’re go­ing to places like Syria and build­ing new towns… and then blow­ing the old ones up!”

I’M BUILD­ING A LUX­URY STU­DIO FIT FOR BEY­ONCÉ

“She – or any­one else – will be able to have our jet pick them up and fly them to our is­land, which will have ar­moured cars and a pri­vate mil­i­tary. There’ll be an in­house pro­ducer, a restau­rant, and a yacht which it­self has a stu­dio on it, so they could record in the middle of the ocean!”

ASK­ING ALEXAN­DRIA HAVE LOTS OF CELEB FANS

“We’ve tied those worlds to­gether, be­cause we’re work­ing closely with ESPN and the NFL. I’m also cur­rently work­ing with [mo­tor­sport com­peti­tor and stunt­man] Travis Pas­trana on some stuff. Those sport­ing ties and celebri­ties help us by be­ing way more fa­mous than we are!”

I’M LIV­ING OUT OF A BAG

“At the start of 2018 I gave away all my be­long­ings – in­clud­ing my house – and moved into a back­pack; ev­ery­thing I own that isn’t a gun or a dog is in that bag. I got rid of my cars, my mo­tor­cy­cles… lit­er­ally ev­ery­thing. All I have are T-shirts, toi­letries, a lap­top, a phone charger, knives, guns and a dog.”

MY BIG­GEST RE­GRET IS FUCK­ING AROUND

“If I’d have started my en­tre­pre­neur­ial jour­ney 10 years ago, I’d be in the ocean on a yacht right now. And if that were the case, tour­ing would be dif­fer­ent: we’d play Fri­days and Satur­days and then fly home, and do that all year round. That’s where I’d love things to get to be­cause Ben [Bruce, gui­tar] has got a sec­ond kid now, and I don’t want him to miss his child grow­ing up. I live on the road, so it doesn’t mat­ter to me, but to my band­mates, time at home is im­por­tant.”
