One of the many things Busted gained when they formed the whole McBusted supergroup thing with McFly was a drummer in the form of Harry Judd. Now they're about to embark on their Pigs Can Fly tour as a threesome, though, they're gonna need another lad to bang one out at the back.

Well say hello to Cobus (aka Pieter Jacobus 'Cobus' Potgieter, phew); the second most subscribed-to drummer on YouTube. Yup - he's gonna be joining Charlie, James and Matt on the tour and we couldn't be more excited about the situation.

Chatting about Cobus joining the boys on the road, Charlie said: "I first came across Cobus in 2008 when someone tweeted me a link of him doing a cover on YouTube and it blew me away. I've followed his career ever since looking for an opportunity for us to work together and the Busted tour seemed like the perfect fit. We can't wait to get out on the road and show people how good he is."

Cobus is well excited to be an honourary member of Busted, too. He added: "I've been listening to Busted since I started drumming as a 16-year old back in 2002, so to be able to join them on this monumental tour is nothing short of a dream come true. We're having such a blast playing along to the old tracks, as well as working on a few new songs. 

I've had a few 'is this really happening?' moments so far while we're jamming through some of my favourite tracks, and I'm just trying not to fanboy too hard. I'm so proud to be a part of this tour."

What d'ya think of that then, eh? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape or drop a comment in the box nobody really uses below. MAKE USE OF IT. BE SEEN. USE YOUR VOICE.

Cheers bye.
