Keyboard player Powter's Beatles discovery

Great deals on musical instruments
Keyboard player Daniel Powter has explained that he came across a very famous music instrument-playing band for the first time at the age of 12, when exploring his mother's music collection.

The Bad Day singer told The Press Association that: "My parents would only let us listen to symphonic music like classical music. We weren't allowed to listen to 'the Devil's music',"

He said that it was likely he turned 12 before he had "heard much of a pop song."

But one day he explored his mother's collection and a Liverpool group came to light for him for the first time.

"Going through my mum's collection I discovered The Beatles when I was 12 years old, and that's when I started to really fall in love with pop music," he explained.

Subsequently Powter, whose current LP contains tracks such as If Only I Could Cry and Cupid, became interested in Fleetwood Mac, David Bowie and Price too, he said.

Powter's other songs include Beauty Queen, Hollywood, Song Six and negative fashion.
