“Looking back - and this is all in retrospect - I did have a lot of success and a lot of great opportunities earlier in my career. But I did also have this thing that was sort of happening in my late twenties where, whether it was because of how I looked or because I started so young, even though I was the right age for things, people didn’t think that I was old enough.”
99% of people won’t reblog this because they think it’ll make their blog look as shitty as their heart.

He totally is a “modern beatle” (also, you’re a twin? That’s so cool!) Well whenever he does, you and I will be on it! And we will meet him and it’ll be great because he seems like a sweetheart. Also, his face looks so different with it, but I love the beard!

I totally wanted to go as Brandon Flowers last year, but I faced the same dilemna. I also didn’t try to put it together until late so it never happened. What I have wanted to do for a while is make a One for the Road jacket and wear it. And if I do go as Alex and people don’t know who he is, I will just carry around my ipod and make them listen to AM lol. But I am also used to having costumes people don’t get. Like I went as Amy Pond to a party once and like 3 people knew who I was. Everyone else thought I was Little Red Riding Hood lol.
I know! And his music is like so many different genres. Songs like “Rearrange” and “Better Than That” are almost pop songs while songs like “Give Up” and “Inhaler” are pure rock and roll. You can definitely see The Beatles as an influence. And his style! It’s unique and kinda retro and awesome. And he seems like he gives all he’s got during every concert which is very important. He just should be way more popular lol.
That sad moment where you want to be Alex Turner for Halloween, but no one would get it. :(
Yeah I know! I got into AM at like the end of last year and I’ll admit I didn’t know who he was until a couple months ago when I noticed that Alex did a side project called The Last Shadow Puppets, I finally downloaded the album and was like “Who’s this Miles Kane guy?” if he’s friends with Alex, he’s gotta have good music, right? Then I downloaded his albums a little over a month ago and listened to them and fell in love! And that’s my Miles Kane story lol. But yeah, it is sad that AM fans don’t know who he is…he should just go on tour with AM whenever they do their next tour, then more people would fall in love because he really is a great musician in his own right.
