Steve Jones, who appeared in the beginning of the Monkeys’ video for “R U Mine” has told Digital Spy that he hopes to work with the band in the future.
“I think they’re really good, and I think Alex Turner’s a very, very talented kid…I’d like to do be a bit of guitar with them guys. I’ll play on anyone’s record, to be honest with you. Me and Alex, we text each other quite a lot. He’s a good kid.”
About the video, Jones said:
“You need tough skin if you wanna read the comments on YouTube. I actually looked on their video – I was watching it and reading some of the comments . They’re like ‘Who’s that fat bastard at the beginning?’. None of them have any idea who I am. They think I’m some fat f**king idiot talking in a microphone.”
