Electric guitar player Alex Turner has apologised to Take That and admitted he wanted to stir things up with the group in the past.

The musician referred to an incident in 2006 when he slammed the group, but he has apologised for the offence he caused during an interview with NME.

Turner claimed to "love Gary Barlow" and said he did not really understand what had happened when he made the derogatory comments in the past.

"I think I really offended him a few years ago though, which I'm sorry about," he remarked.

He added his aim was to "ruffle some feathers" by making controversial comments about Take That.

The songwriter also recently spoke to the publication about the music industry and the role guitar music has to play.

Some newcomers think they have to sound as modern as possible in order to succeed, but the Arctic Monkeys lead singer said this is not necessarily the case.

It is important not to try and fake this impression, Turner continued, stating he believes a new electric guitar band could come along and repeat the success he has achieved with his his group Arctic Monkeys.
