Gavin Rossdale of the reformed British alternative rock band BUSH was interviewed on last night’s (Wednesday, September 21) edition of “Chelsea Lately”, the late-night talk show hosted by comedienne Chelsea Handler. You can now watch his appearance below.
Rossdale said he’s happy to be back with his band BUSH because things were “odd and weird” when he was a solo artist. He told People magazine, “Even at the height of everything going really well and the great reaction to [my] solo record, there was always, ‘When’s the band getting back together?'”
He added, “It was this ricochet around my head. For me, it felt like the right place to be because it feels complete. When I wasn’t in BUSH, it was just odd and weird being under my name.”
BUSH‘s new album, “The Sea Of Memories”, sold 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 18 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on September 13, the CD was produced by Bob Rock (AEROSMITH, METALLICA) and is the first BUSH album to be made available via the band’s own imprint, Zuma Rock Records, through an exclusive partnership with eOne Music.
The current BUSH lineup includes original drummer Robin Goodridge, guitarist Chris Traynor and bassist Corey Britz. Traynor replaced original axeman Nigel Pulsford in 2001 while Britz has stepped in for Dave Parsons.
