Danny O'Donoghue: 'Bad things happen to us all'

Mirror Online 3 weeks ago

Find what you love to do and do it until you die.

That’s true about everything in life. It can be gone in a click, so what are you going to do while you’re here? Are you going to complain?

Nah, find who you love and hold them close to you. Stay in bed those extra five minutes, you might get in trouble, but if it feels like a magical moment make it stretch longer.

 

You need to prepare yourself for the ‘what ifs’.

It sounds terrible, but something bad will happen to every one of us. This year has been a bad one for me (Danny lost his mum and split from his fiancée, model Anne de Paulo but I don’t want to wallow in self pity.

The pain is still with me, but the heaviness isn’t there. I view life differently.
If you’re around anyone who makes you unhappy, get them out of your life. Make every second count.

 

The Script's frontman Danny O'Donoghue

 

 

My biggest fear is a life unlived, or a life unfulfilled .

For some people it’s to find love, or to procreate, but I want to be an Irish music legend. That dream will never stop.
A child would be great too, though, what sane man wouldn’t want a child?
A little mini me running around.

Music is in my blood.

My dad was a pianist, both my brothers  are guitarists, my sister was a singer and mum was a dancer. Rhythm runs in the family.

In my childhood bedroom I’d take CDs out of their cases, stick
them to the wall and pretend they were my gold discs.

I’m massively into the power of visualisation. I saw it, and now I have it.

The most rock ’n’ roll thing to ever happen to me was getting £5,000
worth of excess baggage charges wiped at the airport.

On top of that, I’d forgotten my passport, so they let me on an aeroplane with my social security card and my face on the front cover of The Big Issue. I was allowed onto the plane and to travel internationally.
No, I won’t reveal the airline.

I do loads of f***ed up things, but I do loads  of good things too.

I’m  just hoping when I get to the end my gold is just a little bit more than my silver. It’s all  about balance.

I couldn’t give a f*** about money.

My mum never had the love for money either. I’m from a place where happiness is valued over earnings. With my first big pay cheque I spent £20,000 taking 300 special needs kids from around Ireland to a therapeutic centre.

Traditions are important to me.

My mum used to cook 364 days a year, so Christmas Day was her day off and my dad made the food. We always had steak and potatoes, and he would always burn something.

Now they’ve both passed away I’ll spend the day at the local children’s hospital, as it feels a bit weird in our old house. I’ll stick to the tradition and cook steak for my siblings afterwards, just as my dad did for us.

The Voice UK coaches: Will.i.am, Jessie J, Danny O'Donoghue and Tom Jones

I’m no hero, but one of the bravest things I’ve ever done was to pull a woman out of a car after an accident.

I was on the way to V Festival with the band and she spun around fast with the car flipping in the air. The coach hadn’t even slowed down and the doors were open, I was terrified.

Her door wouldn’t open, so we ran around to the other side; there was smoke coming out of the engine, but we cranked the other door open and dragged her to the side of the road. She was in shock, but said in the ambulance, ‘Did I get rescued by The Script?’
