Q1: How old were you when you started playing guitar?
LB: I was Twelve. My mum gave me Chloe, my acoustic guitar on my twelve birthday. That guitar is like another best friend, if anything ever happened to her it would be tragic. And, people better hide for a few weeks. I have poured my heart out with her. I think she knows more about me than anyone.

Q2: What was the first song that you wrote? And, Why? 
LB: Pink Ribbons was my first song. Chloe, was my first best friend, we meet when we were 5, even then I had an eye for the girls. ( Luke laughs, but then frowns.) She died in a house fire on her seventh birthday, her death impacted on me so much. I was 7 years old and I didn’t understand it, how could she be gone. I had all these things I wanted to say, and I didn’t know how to. So, I didn’t and I locked her away. The guitar came along and suddenly I found an outlet. Turns out, I’m pretty good at it. It was the only way I could move on and accept it. But, without letting her go completely, it was after writing that song I decided to name my guitar after her.

Q3: If Chloe was still alive, do you think she would be your girlfriend?
LB: I often ask myself that. I don’t know if she would have been in my life romantically, but as a friend, Yes. I would do anything to have her back. A part of me thinks she was removed to allow me to meet Melissa, or maybe not. I don’t know, and I guess I never will understand it. Why people do stupid things for fun, and ultimately end a life. She is my little Angel who I believe has always been with me. I’ve never forgotten her. She’s be a riot though, she was funny even at 6, and I know I loved her.

Q4: If you were not in a band or doing anything music related. What job would you be doing?
LB: I would still be working in a petrol station. Dying of boredom. I try not to think about it. I’m doing the only thing I want to do and have any skill in and it’s the best thing in the world. I’m the happiest person in the world when I’m on stage.

Q5: What was it like to go from playing to 20 people in a pub to what you’re doing now?
LB: Mind blowing, insane and I am still in shock. Everyone dreams of it but not everyone gets it. I am so thankful for every fan we have, we have some incredible fans. Some have been with us from the very start. Some have become friends. It’s nice.

Q6: What song is your favourite to perform?
LB: That’s easy ‘Weekend High’ I wrote that when I was twenty after a really bad relationship. It wasn’t really a relationship but at the time I didn’t see it, it was just convenience and there was no love there. Also, the fans go nuts to it.

Q7: Which gig has been your favorite so far?
LB: Now, that is harder to answer because every gig is amazing for all kinds of reasons. I don’t think it would be fair to choose one. That is like saying to one set of fans ‘Oh you were great’ and make other fans feel like you are dissing them. But, for sentimental reasons our third gig at Ruby’s back home will always be special. I meet my Liss there and it was what changed everything for me, and us as a band.

Q8: It’s a Saturday night and you’re not on tour. What would you be doing? 
LB: I don’t see my girlfriend very much, so we would either be catching up at home. (Luke winks and laughs) or I would be writing new material. I don’t really have spare time. I feel like I always have something to work on, or prepare for. When I’m on tour that is like my party time, and when I’m home I try to calm down from it all.

Q9: Who is your best friend?

LB: My band are my best mates but the ultimate title goes to Dale. He’s always there for me even when I’m being a dick, we’ve know each other for about 100 years. He’s a fucking ace best friend and he’s not a bad guitarist either.

Q10: What would you like to say to your fans about the gossip that surrounds you?
LB: That most of it is complete and utter Bollocks. If you haven’t heard it from me the chances are it isn’t true. And, Just to clarify the latest story. The band are not splitting up. My girlfriend isn’t sleeping with my drummer, doesn’t have a drink problem and isn’t pregnant. Whoever writes this crap are fucking idiots. I don’t care what they write about me, but I do care when my girlfriend is sobbing because people are calling her all kinds of things in the street or online.

Q11: What annoys you about being in the limelight?
LB: Before I answer this I’d like to say that for band reasons I have no problem with it. Being in front of people with all eyes on me is part of my job. It’s important to my career. What I don’t understand is people’s need to lie. As, I just stated in my last answer. What is the point of it? What is entertaining about making up stories that my girlfriend is sleeping with one of my band, not cool. My band are very close to Melissa, like her big brothers and that’s the end of it. Plus, do you really think Toby would still be in the band? No, he’d be out on his arse if he betrayed me like that. I wouldn’t still be with Melissa either, do people really think I’m a mug and would allow that? No. I wouldn’t.

Q12: Do you have any regrets?
LB: Yes. I would rather not say as it’s something that is causing me issues currently and I wish I could turn the clocks back so I never meet this person. That’s all I’m willing to say.

Q13: What would you say annoys others about you? 
LB: I’m a perfectionist. I drive everyone mad at times. We could have completely nailed a song but I will be thinking about making it better. I worry about things more then the others. There have been times where I’m trying to change a set list minutes before a show and that winds people up.

Q14: Would you change anything about the band?
LB: Hell no! We’re in a good place and there’s nobody else I would consider doing this with. They are my best mates and we have a laugh and without them I would be nowhere. Anyway, I don’t think anyone else would put up with me.

Q15: Dale dates Melissa’s best friend and you met each other on the same night. Is it difficult , best friends dating best friends? 
LB: Apart from the fact the girls are pretty much joined at the hip, meaning I never get rid of Dale.. Nah, I’m kidding. To be honest the girls are more rock and roll than we are. Beth is great and she makes my BF happy and it’s nice to know they look after each other when we’re on the road.

Q16: You have 48 hours to live. What would you do?
