Do you love The Vamps?

Want to know more about them?

Well, you’ve come to the right place.

We LOVE The Vamps here at OnePopz, they’re up there with One Direction and 5 Seconds Of Summer as one of our favourite bands of 2014.

So, we thought we’d get to know them a little more. Starting with Brad…

  1. His full name is Bradley William Simpson.
  2. He was born on 28th July 1995 inĀ Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands.
  3. He formed the band with James, when they met on YouTube in 2011.
  4. He’s got pretty awesome hair, right? Well, his secret to good hair is… His mum still cuts it!
  1. He started playing the guitar when he was 11-years-old, and then began singing aged 14.
  2. He started off his music career by posting videos of himself singing covers on his YouTube channel.
  3. He’s admitted that he’s not the best at spelling.
  4. He has modelled for Saint Kidd, as well as Tristan and James. So, if all else fails he could always go into modelling…
  1. Vitamin water is one of his favourite things to drink.
  2. He was inspired by the film ‘School Of Rock’ to start playing the guitar.
  3. He prefers to take a bath instead of a shower, as they’re more relaxing.
  4. The Vamps have supported the likes of McFly, Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift on tour – but Brad is desperate to be an opening act for Arctic Monkeys one day.
  1. Brad names The 1975, The Vaccines, The Kooks and Of Monsters and Men as some of his main musical influences.
  2. One of the first albums he listened to practically on repeat was Paolo Nutini’s “These Streets”. He loved it because it was “very well written”.
  3. Strangely, he finds one of the best feelings in the world when you’re bursting for the toilet, and then you finally get to go!
  4. He’s a pretty talented guy – not only can he play the guitar VERY well, he can also play the piano and ukulele!
  5. He has an adorable dog called Jesse who he misses every time he’s travelling with The Vamps.
  1. Before he was in The Vamps, he wrote some of his own songs. “Loading Gun”and”Boom Boom Kapow” were some of the tracks.
  2. After Miley Cyrus introduced twerking to the world, Brad had a go at it in August 2013 on The Hits Radio!
  3. Brad said that if he was invisible, he would follow James into the bathroom. Err…
  4. His favourite ever ice cream is Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough – good choice!
  1. Brad’s sister, Natalie, was the first official band photographer of The Vamps.
  2. His favourite song is Daryl Hall and John Oates – “You Make My Dreams”.
  3. In July 2014, Brad cut his lip when he crashed into James on stage while supporting McBusted at the Barclaycard British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park.
