Ricky Wilson is ‘waiting for The Voice to call’ and ask him to return as a judge

'I need the money'

Kaiser Chiefs‘ Ricky Wilson has revealed that he is keen to return as a coach on ‘The Voice’, and is ‘waiting for them to call’. Watch our video interview with Wilson above.

Wilson was previously a coach on The Voice, before leaving and being replaced by Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale this year.

Asked if he was working on anything else besides music, Wilson replied: “Not really, no. I’m waiting for The Voice to call actually. If they call, I’d go back definitely. I need the money.”


“This is a Voice suit, the BBC bought me this. Got my licence fee back one suit at a time.”

Meanwhile, Wilson also spoke to us about Kasabian’s comments about how only certain indie bands from the early ’00s ‘survived‘.

“They’re all out there,” he said. “If you’ve made a record, you’ve survived. It’s always going to be there so I wouldn’t really worry too much about anything.
