The Fratellis bassist Barry Fratelli spoke with The Sun about Lily Allen quiting her tour due to exhaustion and their decision to cancel a tour for similar reasons. “We’ve decided we have to write songs for the next album which won’t get on our nerves,” Baz explained. “I can’t stop playing it because that’s what people want to hear but we need some more material.” But that doesn’t mean he has sympathy for Lily. “A couple of times we’ve wanted to pack it in and go home but we’ve carried on for the fans who have bought tickets,” he explained. “Lily Allen is a different kettle of fish. She’s a pop artist so she never went through two years of touring constantly to get a break.” The full story at thesun.co.uk has since been archived.
