As the lead vocalist, guitarist and main songwriter behind multi-platinum rock band BUSH, Gavin Rossdale has sold close to 20 million records in the U.S. and Canada alone. Together with BUSH, he’s compiled an amazing string of 18 consecutive Top 40 hit singles on the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts, including 11 that hit the Top 5. Six of these became No. 1 hits: “Comedown,” “Glycerine,” “Machinehead,” “Swallowed,” “The Chemicals Between Us” and “The Sound of Winter.” As a solo artist, he hit No. 1 on iTunes with “Love Remains The Same,” which sold close to 2 million copies alone.
In between recording and touring, Rossdale has earned kudos for acting roles in both film and television, including 2013’s The Bling Ring, the acclaimed black comedy from Oscar award-winning writer and director Sofia Coppola, 2005’s The Game of Their Lives, in which he had a starring role alongside Gerard Butler, and 2005’s Constantine, opposite Keanu Reeves and Rachel Weisz. His television appearances have included USA Network’s “Burn Notice” and CBS dramas “Hawaii 5-0” and “Criminal Minds.”
In 2011, Bush re-entered the fray with The Sea of Memories, their first release in 10 years. That album saw them return to the top of the charts in grand style, with lead single “The Sound of Winter” making rock radio history as the first self-released song ever to hit No. 1 at Alternative Rock Radio (where it stayed for six consecutive weeks). They followed with Man on the Run and toured endlessly in support, playing to packed-house crowds around the world.
Their story continues with new album Black and White Rainbows, which People magazine called “a triumphant return.” Rossdale also recently served as one of the coaches for the hit TV series, “The Voice UK.”
