Indie rock group Guillemots always eat their backstage rider even if they're not particularly hungry
Guillemots always eat their backstage rider.
The 'Get Over It' band - made up of Fyfe Dangerfield, MC Lord Magrao, Aristazabal Hawkes and Greig Stewart - like to indulge in a few snacks before they perform, with drummer Greg always eating from the spread laid on for them at a gig, whether he is hungry or not.
Speaking backstage at the recent Hard Rock Calling festival, Fyfe told American Express Entertainment Insider Lauren Laverne: "Greg, Even if he's not really hungry, he will go and eat. That's the thing, he has to get stuff that's free. He is sort of like a squirrel."
The band are known for their off-the-wall ideas and Fyfe has previously said they would love to play a show on the surface of the moon.
He said: "If I could do a show anywhere it would have to be on the moon."
Meanwhile, backstage at Hard Rock, Starsailor singer James Walsh admitted he's still adapting to performing solo after the band went on hiatus in 2009.
He said: "I'm getting used to it. Initially it was a bit of a shock."
