He told the Gibson website that his first real guitar was an Epiphone Les Paul, a budget version of one of Gibson’s most famous guitars, and all these years later he still plays a Gibson Joan Jett Signature Melody Maker. On one of 5 Seconds of Summer’s earliest trips to the UK, Michael was lucky enough to be invited to the esteemed Gibson guitar showroom in London. Thrilled to visit this guitar heaven, it only fuelled his obsession even more, as he explained: ‘It was insane, I just walked into this room full of guitars … They let me borrow one and [I] have been playing them ever since.
In early 2011, as his friendship with Luke had started to evolve and their commitment to keep practising was resulting in long jamming sessions at school and at each other’s home, things were beginning to gel. Michael told the US TV show Extra, ‘I think when we started, we were just doing it for fun and, I mean, then eventually we got serious about it and we realized, wow, this could be something. ’ Part of that process was the addition of an extra member of the ‘banding’ club – the boys were about to become a three-piece, and Michael’s friend Calum Hood would be the next important piece of the puzzle to fall into place.
Ashton explained this idea: ‘I used to be weird about saying that, but one of my favourite bands are Paramore and they say that they’re their own favourite band. ’ It became clear very early on that while 5 Seconds of Summer’s sound might end up being a mix of very different styles, incorporating not only the rock elements of their best-loved bands, but also some of their less conventional preferences, they were going to make their music their own way. Indeed, this range of styles could first be seen in Luke’s earliest videos, in part because his interests lay not only in emulating the energy and power of his favourite rock songs, but also in capturing what made a record sound great on the radio.
