What's on your rider? Ollie Cole of Turn
What’s on your rider?The usual: coke, strippers, whiskey, mints.
What would be on your fantasy rider?Definitely not Sean Rider – he’d be my least favorite rider. After that it’s between Knight Rider and Easy Rider. Oh! And Winona Ryder.
What’s your pre-gig ritual/ routine?Four hours of tantric sex, vocal warm-ups and a mint.
What’s the best gig you’ve been to?Probably an Oliver Cole solo gig. Have you heard that guy? Seriously, he’s frickin’ awesome.
And the worst?All gigs are amazing and all the music that artists make is majestic. I love all gigs equally and life is beautiful.
What are your favourite and least favourite venues?I love all the venues and all the people who run them and all the promoters. I love them all equally and life is beautiful.
Who is the most famous person to have shown up at one of your gigs?I know this seems like a joke because I mentioned her earlier, but actually it’s Winona Ryder!
Most embarrassing on-stage moment?A dream I had where I was naked. You know the one?
Groupies. Would you?What kind of groupies are we talking here? Irish groupies?
How many roadies does it take to change your lightbulbs (in other words, how big is your entourage)?I leave it to my Irish groupies to twist my bulbs.
Have you a special stage wardrobe?Yes.
Do you like to meet and greet fans after the gig?No. I have nothing in common with those weirdos.
Any useful stage tips?Always play to the back of the room. The people up the front? You have them already
What’s the worst thing ever thrown at you?A positive pregnancy test with a note attached.
If you could be in any other band, which one?Pixies, Pixies, Pixies. Or, if that can’t work, One Direction. I can be like the “dad” guy on the end. Something for the older ladies.
Who’s invited to your aftershow party?Snoop, Jay Z, P Diddy, Fiddy Cent. African-American dudes know how to get down.
What’s your best tour story?I seriously doubt you guys will print most of these answers, never mind my best tour story. Let’s just say that Led Zeppelin and Mötley Crüe had nothing on us.
In conversation with Tony Clayton-Lea. Turn play Dundalk Co Louth on Sunday
