Blur man chats bass playing
A member of the Parklife, Tender and There's No Other Way singing group, James has been chatting to The Star.
The music instrument player has told the newspaper: "Playing the bass in a rock and roll band is a straightforward activity – you just have to stand still."
James, whose group have also racked up hits like Out Of Time and Beetlebum, added: "But planning a festival with bands, Peppa Pig and the best chefs in the world involves a lot of detail."
If music instrument players are wondering why he would be contrasting these two activities, they might not have heard of The Big Festival. The just-finished fest took place on James' farm.
Music instruments playing band Texas - behind hits like Say What You Want – were one of the acts who took to the stage there.
