Originally a next door neighbour of fellow band member Alex Turner, Cook and the other band members picked up their respective instruments and formed the Arctic Monkeys in 2001. He is the son of an engineer. He is the band's most outspoken member, going on record as saying he “fucking hates the [print] news” and defending the band's numerous successive records by stating, “I couldn’t see us being like Coldplay, it’d just be fucking boring. You tour your album for three years and play the same fucking gig night after night. It must really be depressing. Some people might enjoy doing that, but we couldn't.” Following the release of their debut album, Cook said: “Now, I'd like us to be able to grow like The Clash. When they started, it was a very basic, punky record. Then they started to take off and move in lots of directions. That's what we want.” Despite leaving home, Cook has maintained residence in the Sheffield area along with fellow band member Matt Helders. He has been described as “the bullishly confident blue-collar lad” of the group. At the start of the band's career, Cook would join Matt Helders and Andy Nicholson in backing vocals for songs such as “Fake Tales of San Francisco”, but has gradually shied away from singing duties, leaving them to the other three members of the group. Cook is considered to be the “indie music fanatic” of the group. Armed with the likes of musical tastes for bands such as The Smiths, The Strokes, Oasis, and Queens of the Stone Age, Cook supposedly turned the band into what it is today. Cook was also instrumental in the minimal exposure of the band's sixth album, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, prior to its release. He was also the first band member to help Turner develop the somewhat autobiographical album from a potential solo record into a bona-fide Arctic Monkeys one, further indicating his behind-the-scenes importance to the band.
