The former Oasis guitarist admitted that he is a big fan of Edinburgh band Young Fathers, and had tried to get the band to go on tour with him.

During an appearance on Elton John’s radio show he revealed that he admired the band, who won the Mercury Prize in 2014.

Speaking to Elton John he said: “I went to see them when they were on tour with Massive Attack just after that album came out and of course this tune was in the Trainspotting 2 film and I don’t know a great deal about them but when I found out they were from Edinburgh or from Scotland I was blown-away.

It’s hard to pigeon-hole Young Fathers because they’re not… well this track [‘Get Up’] is kind of unique, it’s kind of dance but it’s not, it’s electronic but it’s not… I was trying to get them on tour but they’re busy doing other things. I’d love to do some shows with them down the line, they’re great.”
