Yes, Dear Reader. We enjoy those ‘in depth’ interviews as much as anyone else. But – BUT – we also enjoy the lighter side of music, too. We simply cannot go on any longer without knowing that Thomas Headon is also a connoisseur of Ross MacDonald from The 1975.
What was the first record you bought?
I spent all my birthday money from my 11th birthday on a Coldplay Live 2012 CD that came with like a t-shirt and poster. I don’t think I ever wore the t-shirt, but I would definitely recommend that if you’re looking for a good live album.
What did you last dream about?
Last night I had a dream my best friend and I literally sprinted through a shopping mall in order to sit front-row of a talk show in which Heidi Klum would be at. I don’t know why.
Do you believe in aliens?
BRO THERE IS NO WAY THAT ALIENS DON’T EXIST, THE UNIVERSE IS LITERALLY INFINITE.
What’s your favourite smell?
The One Direction perfume.
Have you got any secret tattoos?
I have a new one on my inner arm I don’t think anyone noticed yet. I like the idea of having secret tattoos though I’m gonna roll with that more. Thanks, Dork.
What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you?
Hmmmmm, nothing really completely stands out to me, but I feel like being born would be really embarrassing. Everybody in the room wants to hold you and look at you, usually while you’re naked. I can’t think about it. I hope nobody saw me being born.
What was the last thing you broke?
Okay, I have gone 20 years without ever putting a hole in any wall anywhere, but the other day I was running downstairs to go to the bathroom, and I fell over and completely knee’d the wall. Very large hole. Very big oops.
If you could form a supergroup of your choice, who would be in it?
Okay, so we got Josh Dun from twenty one pilots on drums, Johnny Buckland from Coldplay on guitar, Ross from The 1975 on bass, with Remi Wolf on vocals and songwriting and feature verse from Dominic Fike. Thank you. Someone make it happen.
What’s your biggest fear?
I mean, I’m not really a spider guy. Like why did you bite me? What was the need for that? Other than that, I don’t know, probably something deep like losing someone.
Baths or showers?
Uh showers, baths are the worst thing imaginable if you want to clean yourself.
What’s the most impressive thing you can cook?
Okay, when I was 18, I got obsessed with the idea of making really good pizza. I followed the pizza subreddit and literally made a different pizza every day. I’d say I’m pretty good at that. I also just really like cooking in general.
If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing?
Probably working in a supermarket, trying to be a musician.
What’s your breakfast of choice?
You really can’t go wrong with an egg and bacon roll, can you? Always my first choice.
Have you ever seen a ghost?
…I don’t recall.
What is your earliest memory?
I recall getting lost at Disneyland when I was like 7.

Probably that egg and bacon roll I mentioned above.
What’s your favourite sandwich filling?
I’m a simple ham and cheese guy. Toast it. Perfect. I’m there.
If you could have a superpower of your choosing, what would it be?
Being able to be invisible would be great. Mainly because you’d be able to suss things about before you do them. Like before you go into a party, go invisible, you hate someone there? Don’t go in. Perfect. Would come in handy.
What have you got in your pockets right now?
I’m answering these on a plane to Sydney right now, so I have a baggage receipt, my wallet, my AirPods case and my phone. Aside from the baggage receipt, that’s usually what’s in my pockets anyway.
What is your most treasured possession?
Lame, but probably my guitar. Is that nerdy? Yes. I don’t care. Let’s go with it.

How tall are you?
6 foot 5 inches.
What’s your biggest accomplishment?
I mean, selling out an entire UK tour without ever playing a show before is pretty cool to me. Didn’t think I’d ever do that.
Have you ever been thrown out of somewhere?
I get thrown out of the movies all the time. I’m not a movie person man, like I don’t mean to be prick in there, but I just get bored of not talking or doing anything for two hours straight.
Who is your favourite member of One Direction?
Okay, considering I have about four cardboard cutouts of him, I think it’s definitely Harry.
What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to try?
I’m not sure about like ‘try’, but I really wanna get a pilots license one day, so I can fly a plane. I just think that’d be so cool. Like you’re in line at a bar, and they ask for ID, and you pull out a sweet old pilots license after you just flew your jet to get there.
Why are you like this?
Okay Dork, where did this come from? I thought we were friends, man.
