Howard, who plays drums and piano and also DJs, says he prefers electronic music.
He revealed, “I generally listen to a lot of electronic music, I can really hear everything, I listen to a lot of dance music.

Praise for Take These are live shows
Although Howard offered his honest take on the songs, he praised Take That’s incredible live shows.
He explained, “We always said we want people to get out of these arenas and say, ‘Wow, it was an amazing show. I got my money’s worth.
I don’t like any of them, they all are [bleep].
“In terms of production, you could spend anywhere between £ 10 million and £ 15 million to produce a show like this. Then of course you have to do enough shows to get your money back or you would be doing it for free. And at the end of the day, we’re a business. “
Howard said the band never saw men at their shows and the crowd was mostly women.
Over the years, “the girlfriends would bring the boys with them”. And “the boys would have their arms in the air”.
