The boys take it in turns to tell the McFly story throughout Unsaid Things which makes for a pacey read and I defy anyone not to laugh as they read it. Fans have always known they were exceptionally funny and this book just proves it. Honestly, for a band that is made up of four very different guys (I want to say boys, but they are men now...so I'll stick with guys as a happy medium) they are all hugely entertaining-different enough to have their own identities but similar enough to share the same daft humour and wordplay.
I was close to tears at numerous points whilst reading. Each member has gone through their own difficult times and the pride that I get as a fan seeing how genuinely happy they appear to be at the moment is immense. On a personal level I was especially touched by Tom's descriptions of depression. This is something I have gone through, and will probably always be going through, myself and his descriptions of the feelings he experienced really resonated. The 'alien at the window' is something I can understand- my own depression and anxiety is worse at night- and the fear of bed because of the emotions you know are going to haunt you is something I can empathise with completely.
Reading Unsaid Things has made me even more excited for the McBusted tour and I cannot wait to be at the Sheffield gig on 19th May jumping around like a loon.
And Danny, for what it's worth I can forgive you your playboy antics. Even though I wish I had been part of them ;)
