The Wanted, a boys band from the UK, is considered to be one of the biggest new discoveries in the music industry. The teenage girls love One Direction (especially Harry Styles), and the lads have been breaking all kinds of records, but The Wanted are appealing to the whole another audience – grown up gals (and fellas) who appreciate top-quality pop music with a little bit of electro and a little bit of rock. If you’re a fan of those high-tempo, feel-good tunes with the kick and snare banging, this band will most definitely become one of your favorites. Oh, you already love it? Great, then let’s check out some interesting facts about Tom Parker, one of the brightest members of the group.
– Alright, so, Mr. Parker was born on August 4, 1988. His hometown is Tonge Moor, Bolton (the United Kingdom). Tom Parker is his real name, not a stage “nickname”.
