Dade, formerly of the Soup Dragons, was offered a deal to play bass for the ‘princess of pop’ (© The Sun), but declared touring wasn't much fun and he would rather spend the time in his shed, where he writes his own music.
"I know Kylie very well and she is a wonderful woman and a great performer", he said. "She was looking for a bass player and I was offered six months' touring. But I decided against it."
“People think it's all fun but it can get incredibly boring. I don't like playing the same songs night after night. I enjoy sitting in my shed with the worms and listening to music while writing my own.”
