Bugg only been to handful of gigs

Jake Bugg has admitted he's only been to seven gigs in his entire life because seeing other acts "messes with your head".

The Slumville Sunrise singer told NME that watching other performers can make him question what he does in his own live show so he prefers to keep his concert-going to a minimum.

"I think as a performer it messes with your head a bit," he said. "You think, 'What are they doing that I'm not doing?' when you should just get on with what you do."

Acts that Jake has made exceptions for include The Stone Roses, Don McLean and Kings Of Leon.

The 20-year-old musician also told NME he used to like Oasis but wouldn't be too fussed about seeing them headline Glastonbury if they were to reform.

"I was an Oasis fan [but] I'm not too bothered about seeing them, you know? I'd have liked to see them in 1995, but not now," he confessed.
