HARRY POTTER star Daniel Radcliffe is desperate to form a rock band after PRISONER OF AZKABAN co-star Gary Oldman taught him how to play the bass guitar on the set.

The young actor was learning to play the bass when the film started shooting last year (03) and was thrilled to discover Oldman, who plays SIRIUS BLACK in the new Potter film, was an expert.

He says, "It was a complete inspiration to work with him. He's actually the nicest guy as well. He gave me a bass lesson and he's a really great bass player."

And now, Radcliffe wants to create a hot rock act.

He adds, "I'd love to maybe form a band, although I doubt I actually have the organisational skills to get me and some other guys together. That would be amazing. I'd love to make a record."
