His Gibson 335TD has been changed from a Frequensator tailpiece to a Bigsby.His pedalboard has changed quite considerably since the Favourite Worst Nightmare tour.Cook is considered to be the "indie music fanatic" of the group.Armed with the likes of musical tastes for bands such as The Smiths, The Strokes, Oasis, and Queens of the Stone Age, Cook supposedly turned the band into what it is today.
Arctic Monkeys will be kicking off their tour at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Forever Cemetery before heading to Europe to play festivals and then play their newly added UK dates.He is best known as the rhythm and lead guitarist and a founding member of the indie rock band Arctic Monkeys, with whom he has recorded six studio albums.Originally a next door neighbour of fellow band member Alex Turner, Cook and the other band members picked up their respective instruments and formed the Arctic Monkeys in 2001. He is the band's most outspoken member, going on record as saying he "fucking hates the [print] news" and defending the band's numerous successive records by stating, "I couldn’t see us being like Coldplay, it’d just be fucking boring.For the Suck It and See tour, a Rosewell Bluesman 30 and an Audio Kitchen Big Chopper was used.On the Australia and New Zealand tour of Humbug, Cook was seen using a Fender Starcaster.His albums with the group include Favourite Worst Nightmare and Humbug.He was once the next door neighbor of bandmate Alex Turner.Then they started to take off and move in lots of directions.That's what we want." At the start of the band's career, Cook would join Matt Helders and Andy Nicholson in backing vocals for songs such as "Fake Tales of San Francisco", but has gradually shied away from singing duties, leaving them to the other three members of the group.You tour your album for three years and play the same fucking gig night after night. Some people might enjoy doing that, but we couldn't." Following the release of their debut album, Cook said: "Now, I'd like us to be able to grow like The Clash.When they started, it was a very basic, punky record.
