LIVE24SEVEN // Interview CAS TAWAY COL L E C T ION Roy Stride


Noughties pop rockers, Scouting For Girls are best known for their catchy chart toppers including She’s So Lovely, Heartbeat and I Wish I Was James Bond. This year, the tuneful trio celebrate 10 years since the release of their million-selling, self-titled, debut album. Touring the country, the band will take to the stage at the fabulous finale of Cornbury Festival in July. Celebrity Columnist Ellie Mainwaring caught up with dapper front man, songwriter and producer, Roy Stride ahead of the bands hotly anticipated festival performance.


What would be your luxury item? My dog Scruffy. He’s a Shitzuh Poodle cross – A Shitpoo! Scruffy is a studio dog and joins us as we make music, so I probably spend more time with him than anyone else.


What movie would you take? I should probably take something inspirational like the Shawshank Redemption but shamelessly it would be the American rock music mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap – debatably, the funniest rock movie ever made!


What would be your last supper before departing? A Sunday Roast Dinner with all the trimmings! The true taste of home, there really is no beating a bloody good British roast.


You can take one celebrity companion, dead or alive, who will it be? Bear Grylls, with him as my right hand man I’d be sure to eat like a king or at least not starve! No doubt he would also teach me a fair few survival skills along the way.


Where in the world will you choose to be a castaway? Tahiti, I’ve been obsessed with Captain Cook since I was a child and this was one of the first and favourite places he visited. Paradise!


What item of jewellery or accessory would you take? Not that I own one, but a Rolex submariner. I’ve always dreamed of owning one and it would be the ultimate aspirational purchase. I don’t own any other jewellery other than my wedding ring but I’m sure I could find space for this one in my ‘collection’.


You can take the entire works of one musician to your desert island. REM, my favourite band of all time and the very first band that made me realise music was magic.


Biggest memory item? My old Casio Stage Piano. It played every single show we did from 2005 – 2011. It saw us through playing from 10 people at a gig to 80,000 and is my trusty steed and a bit of good luck charm.


If you had a superpower, what would it be? The ability to fly so as I could fly home to see all my loved ones I’d be missing, although I’m sure that’s against the rules of being a castaway.


What would be your chosen beauty item? My beard trimmer! I wouldn’t want the beard to become too rough – Tom Hanks Castaway style.


What would be your wild card item? My kids! They would love the experience and so would I.


Scouting For Girls can be seen at the fabulous finale of Cornbury Festival, taking place on 7th, 8th & 9th July 2017 at The Great Tew Park. Tickets are now on sale: www.cornburyfestival.com
