Arctic Monkey’s frontman Alex Turner has said his old bedroom is starting to resemble Graceland.

Turner stays in his family home in Sheffield with parents Penny and David when he is in town but told The Guardian that it’s starting to resemble a museum.

“They’re turning it into a museum. It’s going to be like Graceland.”

The 27-year-old musician also revealed that while his parents have always been supportive of his dreams, he prefers when they don’t attend music festivals that he’ll be performing at as it will stop him from being too mischievous.

“I asked if, in future, we could check which festival she wants to go to and which ones I’m playing at. I absolutely love her though, don’t get me wrong.”
