Lawson’s Andy Brown on former bandmate Max George's success
Lawson frontman Andy Brown has spoken of his friendship with Max George after being asked if he was ever jealous of The Wanted star’s success.
The Liverpool singer/guitarist was briefly in the same Avenue boyband as George back in 2008, but he told the Metro that he was happy that his former bandmate managed to achieve fame elsewhere:
“I was only in Avenue for around six months. I was drafted in when one of them left. I was scouted on YouTube doing my acoustic videos and was asked to be in the band. I wasn’t with them when they did X Factor.
“It was quite short-lived but from doing that I met Max, who is one of my best mates, and when it ended we wanted to do other things. I wanted to play guitar music, I wasn’t really interested in being in that sort of band and Max was asked to do other stuff.
“I’m delighted for him. I knew something would come along for me doing more singer/songwriter-related music.”
The 24-year-old, whose band are set to chart highly tomorrow with second single, 'Taking Over Me,' went on to claim that he always had faith in his career, even when Avenue split:
“I thought it was just the start. I met people in management companies and record labels. Hopefully people knew I was good to work with from Avenue so when Lawson started I already had contacts. Because no one really knew Avenue, it didn’t stand in my way."
