Harry O’Neill closed his eyes. The charred remains of the guitar on which he had just shredded his final, glorious solo lay smouldering behind him onstage. He took a deep breath, soaking in the hazy, smoke-addled air; and, taking a determined step out into the sea of adoring fans below him, he crowd-surfed one last time before giving up his rock ‘n’ roll career for good, in favour of a quiet life of academic pursuits and sporcle highscores. Or so he thought: though Harry’s days as a rock god are behind him, he’s been reborn, like a phoenix from the ashes, as an a cappella singer extraordinaire, and an invaluable member of Out Of The Blue. Not only does his sumptuous beard make up for the shameful lack of facial hair in the rest of the group, but his dulcet tones in ‘Gravity’ are sweet enough to hypnotise the OOTB fanbase into thinking that all the other members are as dashing, charming, and good-looking as he is. And for that, we thank him.

While Harry’s eclectic musical taste has yet to penetrate the Out Of The Blue setlist, we all know that it’s only a matter of time before this hairy Hendrix gets his claws into the group’s excessively mainstream repertoire. Worried though we are about that eventuality, we’re happy to take the gamble in exchange for more spellbinding solos.
