The Alpine Horn, the six-neck guitar and cowbells. No, not the array of instruments likely to appear on the next Radiohead album, these are just a choice few of the bizarre instruments that Bill Bailey has mastered throughout his career. The musician-turned-funny man tells NME about the songs that have influenced him and helped shape the musician and person he is today.
Bailey outlines his musical origins in the video, including detailing the first album he bought, to sharing the story of his first musical performance with a £14.99 guitar from Woolworths. He also reveals his go-to Karaoke hit which he claims “you can’t go wrong with”, berates those who lie about the first music they ever heard and explains why he cannot listen to Amy Winehouse’s ‘Love Is A Losing Game’ anymore.
Bill Bailey’s Limboland tour runs until December 9. Limboland is at London’s Vaudeville Theatre from December 10 to January 17, 2016. Tickets are on sale now
