Shader are doing the business at the moment in the charts with their new song ‘Time is right’. We put singer Stu Whiston in the chair and fired 10 questions at him…
- What got you into playing music? Hearing U2 – ‘Pride’ woke me up to getting into music. ‘Definitely Maybe’ by Oasis inspired me to pick up a guitar.
- Who was the first band you saw live? Oasis at Cardiff International Arena
- What was the first record you bought? Probably something not that cool in hindsight. Leave it there.
- Who do you think is the best frontman? Bono – ‘Achtung Baby’ era or Liam Gallagher in the nineties.
- Where was the first gig you played? At Burslem College
- What is the best lyric you have ever heard? “It’s no secret that ambition bites the nails of success” – ‘The Fly’ by U2
- Who came up with the name Shader? We were firing names back and forth on a whatsapp group. One of us probably spelt Shades wrong and that was it.
- What song do you wish you had written? ‘Comedy’ by Shack
- What venue would you like Shader to perform? Apollo in Manchester
- What band would you like to support? Echo and the Bunnymen
