Poynter was born in Orset Hospital and brought up in Corringham, Essex. Before joining McFly, Poynter lived with his mother Sam, younger sister Jazzie, two lizards, two cats, two dogs, a hamster, and a frog. He used to make money by breeding lizards, earning himself the nickname Lizard King at school (he was also known as Grunger, for his different music and fashion tastes as compared to the other students). He was in a punk rock band called Ataiz and his decision to leave for London was clearly taken with mixed sentiment amongst Poynter's friends. From the old Ataiz Website: "Everything was beginning to look up for the band and they were on the brink of sending their demos off and seriously trying to get signed just after their East Thurrock gig when suddenly Doug announced that he was leaving to join another band called McFly who were well marketed and produced by a large, expensive label called Universal Island Records. This was a shock to the band and a shame as it was always assumed that if they'd make it, they'd make it together."
Recently, in an interview with the Daily Mail, Poynter revealed that he had not spoken to his father Gary, since two weeks before joining McFly when he "disappeared off the face of the planet".
Role in McFly
Poynter plays the bass guitar and also has solo vocals in songs such as "Too Close For Comfort". He also wrote the lyrics for the song "Silence Is A Scary Sound" which the band played on their 2005 arena tour.
Poynter is generally considered the shyest member of the band, despite a brief personality transformation in 2005 when he "stripped" in a video. He is still, however, quiet in interviews and rarely says much.
Tom recently spoke of Dougie's improved ability in songwriting - a talent shown by his 2006 self-penned track "Transylvania" which is a b-side to new single "Star Girl" and is on the new album "Motion In The Ocean".
Poynter has four tattoos - a star on each ankle, the word "Athletes" across the top of his foot (as in Athlete's Foot, the other McFly members have similar tattoos), and a large space-themed scene - complete with rocket and alien - over his upper right chest, which he got to celebrate his 18th birthday. It was recently extended down his right arm.
Dougie has a large fanbase and has many MySpace pages dedicated to him. He co-writes some of the songs on the albums and has written a new song with Tom Fletcher called Transylvania.
