Radio 1 recently interviewed Billy Talent guitarist Ian D’Sa and asked him about their path to success, which wasn’t without its problems. “We almost called it a day,” D’Sa admitted. “There was a point where the bassist quit because he had so much going on and I moved away for a year because the band wasn’t really happening. It was all hanging by a thread.” When they did re-unite, the band were, says Ian, “more mature and more focused on what we wanted to do with our music.”
The “One Music” Exposed feature at bbc.co.uk/radio1 has since been removed.
