Biography

As the lead singer, songwriter and guitarist for the British grunge rock band, Bush, Gavin Rossdale has found a majority of his success in the United States. In fact, his band has been widely reviled by his fellow countryman for not being part of the Britpop scene-a criticism Rossdale has accepted because of his revulsion of Britpop music. Accused of being a Nirvana wanna-be cover boy, Rossdale brushed off such digs and wallowed in the massive success he and his band mates achieved overseas.

Bonus Trivia

.

"I often get asked what the connection between music and film is. For me, it's all about communication. If you're communicating an idea or an emotion, and it's connecting to the person you're supposed to be connecting with – whether it's another actor or the audience – that's the link I find between it all." – Rossdale quoted in Interview magazine, Nov. 2005

.

In 1999, Bush's record label Trauma Records filed a $40 million lawsuit against the band for breach-of-contract.
