Frank Turner talks to Bethan Elfyn
The Road Beneath My Feet
Hay Festival 2015
The singer talks about his memoir. On 23 September 2005 at the Joiners Arms in Southampton, Frank Turner played his last gig with his hardcore band, Million Dead. On the laminates that listed the tour dates, the entry for 24 September simply read: ‘Get a job.’ Deflated, jaded and hung-over, Frank returned to his hometown of Winchester without a plan for the future. A thousand-and-some shows later he was headlining a sold-out gig at Wembley Arena with his band The Sleeping Souls.
