Arctic Monkeys Spawned By Underaged Drinking Buddies
Fans can thank underaged drinking laws in Britain for the Arctic Monkeys. “We were too young to get into pubs,” singer Alex Turner, 20, tells Blender magazine. “We would just knock about, getting pissed in fields and alleys. One day we were sitting around drining cider and someone said, ‘Should we have a band, then?'” A bold idea considering none of the guys had ever played a musical instrument.
