Speaking to Sylivia Patterson for the cover story of our new issue, Q337 out now, the singer explains he’s adopted Roger Daltrey as a role model.
“I stole his chops for [album track] Cherry Blossom, I’ve started swinging the mic and everything!” he declares, adding he got a close look at The Who frontman when the pair sung together during Nutini’s Teenage Cancer Trust show this year.
“He’s an absolute monster of a man and so unassuming and humble. Absolute hero. And I got a cuddle. What a privilege.”
