- Kaiser Chiefs »
As part of DiS' exclusive Kaiser Chiefs takeover week of content, we asked frontman Ricky Wilson to keep a little Twitter_-like time-line of his day to give you a little glimpse into what it's like to spend a day in his trainers...
Wake up on tour bus
Look out of tiny window See wall Get out of bunk Annoy Tim for a bit Look for toilet All engaged (really need toilet now) Go to toilet Don't open laptop Potter around catering Have toast Put mayonnaise on it (doesn't work) Go to dressing room Whitey, Peanut, Simon and Tim on laptops Nick in bed Don't open laptop Find small soft American football Chuck it about with Tim in the big room Get bored of that so potter about on stage Inform Rich that one of his lights is broken Go back to catering Read tabloids Not in them – Relieved Danny says he knows where there's Ping Pong Don't open laptop Get shower (8 out of 10) Sit with Whitey and watch skateboarders on YouTube Rachel tells me I have three phone interviews Tell her I have sore ear so can't do them Doesn't work Don't open laptop Nick is up. He's changing Wikipedia Nick is annoyed that it is all wrong Mess about on gym equipment with Whitey Do three foreign phone interviews Some of these questions I have heard before Complain about sore ear to Rachel She doesn't believe me Do radio interview with Nick Interviewer looks EXACTLY like Zoe Ball She doesn't see it herself, but we all did Decide to keep Bullet points shorter Still don't open laptop
