Watch the Stereophonics rocker talk to Johnny Vaughan about the art of being the frontman.

Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones turns 50 years old today (3rd June), but do you remember when he sat down with Radio X's Johnny Vaughan to talk about what goes into being the lead singer of a band?

Back in 2019, JV was forging a second career as a rock star and was offered some invaluable advice from none other than the Welsh rocker.

The presenter of the 4 Til 7 Thang and his band The Templetones had previously proved their rock 'n' roll credentials by recording their take on Ramones' Sheena Is a Punk Rocker, and giving it a twist with Sunta Is A Punk Rocker.

Their first outing was a successful one, but Johnny Vaughan still thought he needed a bit more know-how to become a fully fledged rock star.

Well who better to ask than friend of the show and Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones himself?

With almost three decades of experience under his belt, the musician imparted his wisdom on how exactly to be a frontman.
