Alexander David Turner was born on the 6th of January, 1986, in Sheffield. He was raised in a pedagogical family. Being a clever and a sporty boy, Alex was rather indifferent to studies. Though he was taught music and liked it, he, unlike all the stereotypes, did not start writing poetry, as the majority of all rock-stars in their childhood. After school Alex was enrolled into a college where he majored in media, psychology and some philological studies. Suddenly he decided to take a gap-year to promote his career in music which astonished his parents. He organized a group which he called ‘Arctic Monkeys’. In 2006 the group created an album which was named ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not’. This album is known to be the quickest-sold out music creation in the world.
Alex Turner is a member of Music Stars.
