Singer/songwriter David Gray refuses to accept tracks people have written for him, and he suggests they proposition British boyband McFly with their compositions instead.

The BABYLON star takes great pride in his songwriting ability, but he questions the validity of FIVE COLOURS IN HER HAIR hitmakers McFly's claims that they craft all of their own tunes.

He told the audience at an intimate concert in Edinburgh, Scotland, on Tuesday (13SEP05), "When I get people offering me songs at the door, I tell them I'm busy and to go and find McFly.

"It's not that hard to write biographical songs. Sincerity is important, but there is a bit of acting involved too. It's born out of a feeling that's sincere."
