by Music Weekly – Thailand (2005-07-13)

Despite the striking looks that could easily cast them as just the latest boy band to hit the music scene, Rooster – vocalist Nick Atkinson, 25, guitar player Luke Potashnick, 22, drummer Dave Neale, 20, and bass player Ben Smyth, 20 – were brought up on a steady diet of Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Aerosmith and Gun N’ Roses.They considered themselves rockers rather than bubbly pop idols.

Hailing from England, Rooster (Sony BMG Music) recently made a brief visit to Bangkok, Thailand to promote their self-titled debut albumn and to perform on MTV and Channel [V] 4th Music Video Awards.

While doing so, they enjoyed wearing and posing with Fairtex flame gloves and fighter robes for media pictures.And would you have guessed it that they are fans of muaythai (Thai kickboxing), Thailand’s national sport.
