Darling BOY Darling BOY England It's surely not too bold or brash a statement to suggest that Darling BOY is the most intriguing and precocious young man in popular music today. Darling BOY, or Alexander Gold, (for that is his given name) is an entirely self-taught - and entirely self-confident - multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and actor. In 2016, he starred alongside Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ Joe Strummer as The Clash's Topper Headon in the feature film London Town, more recently named as Music Director of the smash hit musical All Or Nothing in London's West End having played Ian ‘Mac’ McLagan of Small Faces and The Faces and is playing John Lennon as part of one of the world’s biggest cruise ships’ resident Beatles. He's a member of The United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra, been a guest of Dolly Parton in deepest Tennessee and asked to join two - two! - of Libertines mainman Carl Barât's bands. He's been a member of Joey Ramone's favourite band of all time, got talked out of setting up a London squat by Sex Pistol Glen Matlock, and been taken out for dinner by Moby. As if all that wasn’t enough, Alex has also joined Supergrass’ Danny Goffey’s new band, switching between bass, guitar and drums.
