Rupert Grint Talks His Favourite Bands!

2u4ojmx

July 12, 2009, 5:46 AM–Good morning Rupert Grint fans! I have a special treat for you today. The Observer Music Monthly has just published their exclusive interview with Rupert, who talked about his favourite music genres, bands, musicians etc. Get ready for some memorable quotes, such as:

Johnny Rotten had good hair, didn’t he?”

(on punk) “I love the madness behind it. The craziness, the passion. And the whole anarchist thing is quite cool.”

“I’ve bought albums simply because I like the look of the sleeve, like the Dead Kennedys’ Frankenchrist.”

The interview is accompanied by an amazing photo of Rupert, so without further ado view the high-res scans in our gallery here.

Yes, it is Jo. It’s is late because the media is so slow (or blind? ) to recognize how wonderful Rupert is. Now they open their eyes and suddenly see the light :)

No love for Neil Young. Never heard of him and gave his song a big old X! :D Sigh…our quirky little Rupert.

Loved the interview. I was checking youtube for Rupert vids and found this video of a fan who got to meet Rupert at the NY premiere, seems like Rupert was the only one of the cast who signed autographs after the premiere. I absolutely love him for that, he’s always so good with the fans! :D

Doesn’t know Neil Young!@?!?!?! I’m almost hurt! As a folk music freak, I feel Neil to be essential. I hope he gets himself some of that soon.

And Tom Petty while you’re at it, dude.

He was Stephanie. He came out and signed autographs and waved to the fans. He’s fantastic. I only saw a couple of others come out but I can’t remember if they were all HP… I know Chevy Chase came out and left, and some crew, but I can’t remember now if any other cast members did. I definitely didn’t see Dan or Emma or Tom come out at the time we were waiting around.

That pic is made of all kinds of awesome!!! I wonder if he’s ever seen “Sid and Nancy”?

I can’t read the article on my phone, I need to find a computer pronto!!

I’m so happy that he’s finally showing his personality, idon’t know, maybe he was afraid to show it before. Anyway, I freakin love it, man!!!

Is so funny that he doesn’t know Neil Young! hahaha

Anyway,that picture is beyond awesomeness,i loved! Is like he’s saying: “I rock,Yeah!” LOL or something like that…Rupert + punk is one of the most perfect mixes ever :)

“All of this attention. I am going to explode. Is this really happening??”

Me too Jo,i’m loving this,it seems like a old wish came true… :D \o/
About time,damn media!

London Calling is really an excellent album, probably one that should be on anyone’s Top 10 Greatest Albums list.

Reading this made me put on My Bloody Valentine, which I haven’t listened to in a while. I’m surprised Rupert hadn’t heard of them, I think he’d like them. Les Savy Fav, as well, who do live shows that have to be seen to be believed. Really crazy, but great!

THIS PICTURE IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I remember being the first one here, talking with Ivana, to say he could be a great Johnny Rotten in a movie and that is the proof!
Just need a make up for the theeth! :D

Now I’m really confused. I could be Rupert’s mother but he also could be a member of my “gang”!!! :D
Hahaha, I remember exactly the time when we found out Sex Pistols and me buying The Clash’s “London Calling”!

But oh no, Rup!!!
My, my , hey, hey, you don’t know Neil Young?
What a shame, boy!
But it’s ok, but “keep on rocking in a free world!” :D
