Rupert Grint Talks Music in New Interview
July 12, 2009, 08:55 PM
A new interview featuring actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) in The Observer is now online, featuring a new photo of the young actor which can be seen right here. In this interview, Mr. Grint chiefly discusses his love of music, particularly the punk genre which he likes due to the "madness behind it. The craziness, the passion. And the whole anarchist thing is quite cool." Expressing his knowledge of the music, and of some its most popular bands, Mr. Grint relates his method for finding new music by saying: "I've bought albums simply because I like the look of the sleeve, like the Dead Kennedys' Frankenchrist. And I've also done that
because of funny band names, or funny song titles. I got the Kennedys'
Kill the Poor for the title alone." However, as Mr. Grint notes in the interview, his love of music does not necessarily equate to him fronting a band of his own. Quotegae:
"I wouldn't be like ... Bono... I'd be happiest standing at the back, strumming my little banjo where
no one could see me." He grins. "Yeah," he says, "that would suit me

Music is for everyone and its a great way to connect us as HP the Musical/A very Potter Musical has shown us. People who look down their noses at others who had different opinions to them is what disgusts me more than anything else. Pop, punk, rock whatever, music is there to be enjoyed.
Not a punk rocker my self… but Rupe is looking cute in the pic!
There is no need 2 b unkind it is his opinion not yours I think it was honest. He wasn’t pretendin 2 kno bout stuff just because he is in the media spotlight
“I’d be happiest standing at the back, strumming my little banjo where no one could see me.”
Heehee, I had great mental images when I read this line. :D
@sianletley, was that directed at me? Not sure but if it was, I wasn’t talking about Rupert, I was responding to some comment/s here that seemed to imply that Rupert is not allowed to have an opinion on music, because I agree with your statement, it is his opinion and he is allowed to have one :)
oh dear…buying for the cover…
Looks a bit more mad than usual in that picture!!! In my opinion.
If he was in a band just strumming his banjo at the back then he’d definitely be my favourite member of the band.
Rupert is rich enough to buy all the songs that he wants to buy because he enjoys the music AND to buy songs just because he likes the cover. I’ve often wanted to buy an album in a music shop because the sleeve amuses me, I don’t see why it’s a bad thing if Rupert can afford to buy it.
Great taste in music but he needs to get acquainted with My Bloody…. heeheheh It is quite good! and probably a whole bunch of other late 80’s and early 90’s stuff… Oh my, he is so young… :)
I love the fact that he would be happy standing at the back where no one could see him, he absolutely does not seem to see himself as a star and I think that is wonderful. I wouldn’t worry about him thinking the anarchist thing is cool, that surely is not going to make him a bad person, and i really don’t think he is going to make anybody else become an anarchist because of that comment. As I understand it everybody says he is very laid back and Dan says he is quite lazy!
Oh, Rupe. You are so cute…
Pic is cool. Not saying that his taste in music is like mine, but to each his own. I have bought albums, cds, etc for the cover even though I didn’t like the music. So I think that Ruprint is cool. He speaks his mind and doesn’t care if someone else doesn’t like it.
lol,great taste in music :)
