|What You Get For Singing About Bouncers
|According to The People, Alex Turner was turned away from a bar in the Arctic Monkey's hometown of Sheffield.
After being asked for ID at The Cavendish Bar and not having any, Turner was forced to try elsewhere.
An onlooker said:
"Alex is one of the most famous people in pop but he and drummer Matt Helders had to queue," an onlooker told The People. "When they got to the front, the bouncer grabbed Alex and said, 'How old are you, mate?' He told them he was 20 but the bouncer said, 'I don't believe you - you got any ID?'
"Alex said, 'I don't need ID. I'm Alex Turner. I'm the lead singer of the Arctic Monkeys.' The bouncer said, 'I don't give a toss, you don't look 18 and you need ID.' Alex eventually moved on but he wasn't happy."
Ritz to Rubble, anyone?

That bouncer is such an asshole. but it is kinda funny

well I mean, if you don't have ID... the guy was just doing his job. Alex's attitude is so annoying he used to seem rather nice but he's just... blah

By Laney on 30 Apr 2006 07:51 pm

bouncer doing his job, and alex said "i dont need id" fuck him, lol, but its gossip no one can prove that shit, for all we know alex had sex with the bouncer.
By Cress on 01 May 2006 08:03 am

By andy on 01 May 2006 11:19 am

all bouncers are like that in sheffield! they jus doing their job!
By Angela on 01 May 2006 02:29 pm
No offence but I think this story is bollocks. They seem pretty down to earth and stuff and I don't know them personally or anything ha. I wish I did but what I'm trying to say is, they seems like a quiet lot, like it seems out of character for such a quiet band to have an outburst like I'm so and so and blah. You know. I don't think I made sense there but hey!
By living on 01 May 2006 08:24 pm
yeah thats a point- for all the lads do like being quiet and not doing totp, it would be unlikely for alex to come out with a line like that....
By the_franzy_one on 02 May 2006 01:37 am
True or not, the bouncer totally owned Alex.
By Lena on 02 May 2006 09:45 am
i have the same fuckin problem!!!!
By hellraiser on 02 May 2006 01:12 pm
if alex was liam, the bouncer would now be in the hospital
By keenyr on 02 May 2006 04:07 pm
Don't believe the iiiiipe, sounds like a PR stunt to me to promote the Album.
By Sky on 02 May 2006 04:49 pm
dunno what you people have...true or not I would have probably said the same thing... he`s got a point there outburst or fame to the head hahahaha I would have said the same....

That story is a load of bollocks imo. Al wouldn't say something like that, Andy's bro agrees... and he has connections and that. hah
By CANADA on 02 May 2006 10:33 pm
i dont think that this story is true, i dont care if its true, all i know is alex is a hot mother f-word. and i love the band. but i doubt he'd say "I DONT NEED ID, IM ALEX TURNER" becuase he dosent seem that full of himself or gay. besides anyone that would say that needs a nice swift pimp slap, and i dont think alex needs one
By Matt on 03 May 2006 06:34 pm
alex is an arrogant twat, isnt he.
