Somebody FINALLY asked David Gray what his favourite shade of grey is

He said “arsewipe grey” was his favourite.

YESTERDAY, BOARDS.IE hosted a Q&A with David Gray and asked him a number of questions posed by Boards.ie users.

He was asked all the usual questions – best gig, best venue, etc. – before he was asked what his favourite shade of grey was. (‘Cause of his name, get it?)

His answer was surprisingly in-depth.

He held up a grey plectrum and described it as his “most frequently used shade of grey” before clarifying that he prefers a “slatier, deeper grey”.

The user who asked the question had also sent a colour chart. Of those colours, Gray said that his favourite was “pale version of arsewipe grey or whatever it was called”.

It was a slightly bluer grey, so it had a bit more jollity and there was a bit of depth of colour.

It was then revealed that the actual name of the colour was “diamond vogel pale slate”.

The more you know, eh?
