Bio.

Alexander David ‘Alex’ Turner was born on January 6, 1986, in Sheffield, UK. He is the only child of Penny and David Turner. His mother taught German, and his father taught physics and music at Rawmarsh Community School. He took piano lessons till the age eight. Since his father was a member of big bands, Turner was exposed to different kinds of music at home. He listened to records by The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, The Carpenters, The Beach Boys, and The Eagles. Turner attended Stocksbridge High School. He excelled in sports, particularly basketball. His teachers remember him as a quiet boy, bright and clever, but “laid-back” in studies.
He met Matt Helders in his primary school and became friends. The duo met Andy Nicholson at secondary school, and the three teenagers listened to rap artists such as Wu-Tang Clan, Cypress Hill, Dr. Dre, Outkast, and Roots Manuva. In 2001, Turner’s parents bought him a guitar following which he started writing songs, using a bass guitar and some microphones. Soon he was deep into music and got serious about making a career in this field.
In 2002, while still in high school, Turner formed an indie rock band called Arctic Monkeys with his friends Andy Nicholson, Glyn Jones, and Matt Helders. They later added a classmate Jamie Cook. When Glyn left the band, Turner became the frontman and lyricist. They first practiced at their garages and later, at an unused warehouse in Wath.
In 2002, Alex Turner went to Barnsley College, where he studied English, psychology, music technology and media. After college, his parents reluctantly agreed to let him skip university for one year to pursue his musical visions. He then took up a barman’s job at Sheffield music venue, The Boardwalk, while exploring musical avenues. During this time, Turner was drawn to guitar bands like The Hives and The White Stripes. He was also introduced to Queens of the Stone Age and The Coral. He attended his first live musical performance in 2002, when he watched The Vines in Manchester. In 2003, he travelled to London to watch The Strokes play.
