British Invasion - Harry Judd

Här är en artikel från en amerikansk hemsida som heter Examiner.com där de pratar om Harry.

"British Invasion - Harry Judd

Yes, it's another British Invasion, one that is anticipated by the female fans (and some male closet fans) of the United States. After the success of the Beatles, why not try another one and see how this goes? Only problem, they're not that big in America, in fact few people know about them. But, if you're a die hard McFly fan, it doesn't bother you that they're mainly stationed in the UK (not that much anyway).

McFly, the British band that's quickly rising to fame first started back in 2004. Over the six year course of their band (and they're still going strong) they've stuck to thier original pop-rock sound. The band consists of Tom Fletcher (lead vocals and rhythmic guitar), Danny Jones (lead vocals and lead guitar), Dougie Poynter (backing vocals and bass guitar) and Harry Judd (drums). The band rose to fame after fellow pop band Busted helped launch them by inviting them to tour in March 2004. The band's name originates from Marty McFly, the main character of the Back to the Future trilogy.

They have five albums out Room on the 3rd Floor, Wonderland, Just My Luck (which coincides with the American movie they took part of of the same name with Lindsay Lohan and Chris Pine), Motion in the Ocean, All the Greatest Hits, and most recently Radio:ACTIVE. They released their first five albums under Island Records before creating their own label called Super Records. Under this record label, they put out the CD Radio:ACTIVE and their newest album (which will be released soon) called Above the Noise.

Their first album, Room on the 3rd Floor debuted at no. 1 on the UK album charts and is certified as double-platinum. This led them to becoming the youngest band to have an album debut at number 1 - previously held by the Beatles. This was possible because their bass player, Dougie Poynter, and youngest member of the band, was only 15 when he joined the band. Ever since their albums Wonderland also hit no. 1, Motion in the Ocean debut at no. 6, and All the Greatest Hits debuted at no. 4. They also hold sixteen consecutive top twenty singles, seven which reached no. 1 in the UK singles charts, and fifteen of which were consecutive top ten singles.

But, you're here to read more about the man behind the drum set, the driving force of the band; Harry Judd.

Harry Mark Christopher Judd was born December 23, 1985 making him 25 this upcoming holiday season. Judd was born in Chelmsford, Essex, England and has appeared in Busted's music video for their single "Crashed the Wedding", after which he joined McFly following auditions. Judd had been playing the drums for three years before he joined McFly.

He heard about the auditions the same way their bass player, Dougie Poynter, heard about them. Both of them found out through a classified advertisement in the NME magazine. Both boys are from Essex and they both, coincidentally, turned up at the same audition. They bonded over talking about thier favorite band, The Starting Line, after Poynter noticed their name and logo was printed on Judd's t shirt.

Even though Judd isn't one of the singers of the group, he does do his fair share of singing. Some fans recount the event where during a break in their set, Judd took the mike and sang "Hero" by Enrique Iglesias. It's no doubt that he also has great vocals for the band. He is also the "funny" member of the band.
