FAULT Magazine Issue 21- The POP Issue features supergroup Mcbusted! Starting out as just an idea to go on tour together, the response from fans old and new alike has led them to go on to produce an album, have a top 20 hit, tour with One Direction around the world and have a hell of a lot of fun while doing it. FAULT sat down with band member Matt Willis to get the 411!

At that stage did you think your pop star days were behind you?

Yeah, totally. Me and James talked about going on tour again but we didn’t really see any avenues to do it. It just didn’t seem possible because Charlie wasn’t interested. I felt like we were stepping back already because we were already starting with less of a band than we were. I think if you’re coming back, you’ve gotta come back with something strong and something positive. Then this came along and I thought ‘well this will be fun!’ and it just seemed like an obvious thing to do to go on tour with our mates and play some songs.

What do you think is the formula for great pop music?

I think there’s got to be a story. With Busted songs and McFly songs they all start from a main concept. The only time when we can’t finish a song or we write a song that’s not very good, is because the concept is wrong or the idea behind the song is wrong.

Do you ever feel frustrated that pop music doesn’t get as much credibility as other genres?

Not anymore. I used to when I was younger. I used to care what people who read Kerrang! Magazine thought of me when I was 16, but that’s because I was one of those people who read Kerrang! Magazine. I soon grew out of that. I wanna produce stuff that I think is cool and I have fun with and I think other people will enjoy.

Who is the Queen of Pop?

I think Taylor Swift is the Queen of Pop right now.
