"Rooney, it’s got to get interesting at some point hasn’t it"

There have been many similarities drawn between the life of a footballer and a pop star, with fame, fortune and everything else bestowing both sets of people.

Football is often cited as an influence for many musicians, and while Toploader guitarist Dan Hipgrave's love of Manchester United isn't as well known as the Gallagher brothers' passion for their City rivals, it's still a big part of his life.

Originally from Brighton, Hipgrave has enjoyed a chance meeting with David Beckham, would love to share a pint with Wayne Rooney and aims to avoid Jamie Carragher (for linguistic reasons) should the opportunity to share a drink arise.

"We met David Beckham once in a club in 2001, he said he loved our music," Hipgrave told The Football Fancast podcast, hosted by Neil Ruddock and Gary O'Reilly.


 

On who he'd like to share a pint with, Manchester United's star striker was an obvious choice. "Probably Rooney, it’s got to get interesting at some point hasn’t it."

The Liverpool defender wasn't so high on the agenda though. "I don’t think I’d understand a word he said all night."


Toploader are back with single ‘A Balance To All Things', with new album ‘Only Human’ set for release on May 30th.
