Alex Turner has said that he was “nervous” delivering his Brit Awards speech.
The Arctic Monkeys frontman declared that rock ‘n’ roll music would never die at the annual awards ceremony hosted by Gavin and Stacey actor James Corden on Wednesday (February 19).
Collecting the Best Album award, Turner told the O2 audience: “Yeah, that rock’n’roll, it seems like it’s faded away sometimes, but it will never die. And there’s nothing you can do about it.”
However, speaking to the Daily Mail, Turner said: “In public I’m a quiet guy, so doing anything in front of lots of people always makes me nervous. People always assume if you’re in a band that’s been on the scene for ages that you’re going to be really confident, but that’s not true.”
Arctic Monkeys won two Brit Awards, taking home British Group and British Album.
