We caught up with Danny Jones and Matt Willis over the weekend to get all the goss on what it's like to have influenced the 5SOS and One Direction boys and, consequently, made our lives worth living.

Chatting to us backstage ahead of their ridiculously amazing British Summer Time Hyde Park gig in London yesterday, flannel shirt fanatic Danny Jones said: "It's amazing. There's a few bands, like the 1D boys, and they're all getting to that age where Busted or McFly was the first gig they ever went to. It's amazing because it's really nice to hear and really nice to see that bands are taking influence from what you do.

"You get the compliment here and there, but to actually see people in bands picking up guitars and going their thing - any musical influence that we can give them - is amazing to see. It's really nice to hear."
