Oxegen: Arctics Talk Bass Players
They tell Zane how they parted company with Andy...
Arctic Monkeys have broken their silence about their split with bass player Andy Nicholson.
In an interview with Zane on the Gonzo brown couch backstage at Oxegen, the Sheffield giants spoke fondly of their former bandmate and explained how touring led to his departure. I sent him a message yesterday actually, telling him to have a good one and that, said singer Alex Turner
To start with we were in Lisbon at the end of the European thing and he decided he didnt want to come to America. And that was cool, and then, I dont know, I guess we found ourselves in this situation by the end of the American tour.
I mean, a lot happens, its not just like three weeks in a normal thing, its three weeks with your head all over the place. I mean, its a difficult thing to explain, I dont think anyone will really understand this except us three and Andy
Meanwhile, the bands new bass player Nick OMalley introduced himself during the interview, and spoke of how excited he is to be in the band.
To see Oxegen in all its glory, tune-in to Ultimate Festival Weekend on July 29 and 30.
