Mcfly

Biography

McFly (formed 2004)
McFly are an English pop band consisting of Tom Fletcher (vocals/guitar), Danny Jones (guitar/vocals), Dougie Poynter (bass) and Harry Judd (drums).

McFly: Formation
McFly's story began when Tom Fletcher was enlisted onto the songwriting team for the band Busted. He was soon asked to audition to be in a band called V and at these auditions he met Danny Jones who he roped in with him on the Busted songwriting team.
They soon stopped writing for Busted and decided to collaborate and make a band, advertising auditions in NME. Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd were subsequently recruited with the pair making acquaintance over their shared love of 'The Starting Line'.
Fletcher chose the band name 'McFly' after Marty McFly in 'Back To The Future'; while Jones was initially reluctant to agree on the name, he soon warmed to it after watching the movie.

McFly: Musical career
McFly released their debut single '5 Colours in Her Hair' in 2004, entering the UK chart at number one. Second single 'Obviously' then followed suit.
They released their debut album 'Room on the 3rd Floor' also opened at number one, was certified double platinum and broke the world record for the youngest band to have a debut number one album. The same year saw them support Busted on their tour as well as V and, later, headline their first tour.
In 2005, they released the double A side number one single 'All About You/You've Got a Friend' from second number one album 'Wonderland' for Comic Relief, the video for which was shot in Uganda, Africa. In the same year, they co-headlined Live 8 Japan with Bjork and Good Charlotte, released 'Wonderland''s second single 'I'll Be OK' which also reached number one, released their first live DVD from the Wonderland Arena Tour where they were supported by Tyler James and Famous Last Words and later played at the 2005 Royal Variety Performance.
In 2006, they made an appearance in the Lindsay Lohan movie 'Just My Luck' for which they contributed to the soundtrack. Their first single of the year was double A side 'Please, Please/Don't Stop Me Now' which became the official song for Sport Relief 2006 and, again, reached number 1. Their third album 'Motion in the Ocean' was also released with single 'Star Girl' reaching number one.
2007 saw them release their seventh number one 'Baby's Coming Back/Transylvania' as well as their 'All the Greatest Hits' compilation album in 2007 featuring three new songs 'The Heart Never Lies', 'The Way You Make Me Feel' and 'Don't Wake Me Up'. Their subsequent tour was supported by Elliot Minor and Saving Aimee.
In 2008, they gave away their fourth album 'Radio:Active' in The Mail on Sunday before releasing it again with four added tracks, a DVD and a 32-page booklet. It's single 'Do Ya/Stay With Me' was released for Children In Need but was their lowest charting single so far.
In 2009, they were surprise guests at the Jonas Brothers' show at Wembley Stadium and they gave a rendition of 'Star Girl'.
In 2010, fifth album 'Above the Noise' was released. First single 'Party Girl''s music video was voted number one by fans in the 4music Video Honours of 2010 after it was taken from their short movie 'Nowhere Left to Run' released later on DVD.
In 2011, they released their first jewellery range with Gioia Jewellery, Dougie won the eleventh series of reality jungle show 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' and Harry won the ninth series of televised dance competition 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
