The ‘Song For the Radio’ group – who unveiled a new pop-dance influenced sound on their latest album ‘Above The Noise’ – met the dance superstar at a London hotel in August, and singer Danny Jones said he was instantly reminded of Dallas Austin, who produced tracks on their new LP.
He said: “Roger got in touch, so I met him when we were in America. He reminded me a lot of Dallas Austin but with a sentimental side. He’s got family and hangs out with his kids, whereas Dallas would be like ‘Wahey, let’s go out and get some birds.
“But he was a lot like Dallas, he wore his shades inside and stuff, he’s a really nice guy and he gave me some good advice and wants to do some McFly remixes and stuff, and he wants to help me with my dance project.”
The ‘Party Girl’ group – which also includes Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd - also said that when it comes to partying themselves, they prefer to hang out with each other rather than at clubs or showbiz events.
Dougie exclusively told BANG Showbiz: “We don’t really go to many celebrity parties. I think the majority of our parties are at home with our friends, or just us lot. They’re like the bad nights for hangovers. But we do sort of branch out to the clubs and have a crazy night every now and then.”
