“Good is the enemy of great,” says DANNY O’DONOGHUE as he explains how The Script have rebooted themselves with their new album, Freedom Child. Also on the agenda as he shares a sticky bun with STUART CLARK are David Bowie, Lemmy, Stormzy, Donald Trump and HRM, The Queen.
Rewind to a July afternoon in Windmill Lane Studios:
Danny O’Donoghue is air guitar, bass and drumming as Hot Press is treated to a top secret preview of the new Script album, Freedom Child. His band may have sold over 30 million records, but you can tell that the singer is anxious to get the seal of approval from the first magazine to have in 2008 stuck his impossibly photogenic face on its cover.
Mean-spirited bastard that I am I wait until the final bars of mega-ballad ‘Arms Open’ before giving him a job exceedingly well done ‘thumbs up’.
