Gavin Rossdale of Bush joins me to discuss many things in his world, including the Greatest Hits: Loaded 1994-2023. He told me why now, and how it was something he didn’t really want to do.
He spoke to the latest single and video, “Nowhere To Go But Everywhere”. In the video, he goes back in time to 30 years. I asked him if going back to the start of Bush was done on purpose “It was absolutely on-the-nose intentional.” See the video below.
He also talked about being in a band that’s sold 24 million albums. “I would’ve died of shock” had he’d known he’d go on to sell so many records.
How did they pick the songs for the greatest hit album? How will the band celebrate the 30th anniversary of the debut album, Sixteen Stone, next year? Gavin gives some answers to those questions.
“I love it!” he responded when asked about his music appearing in movies. Does he have any acting projects in the works right now? “Not really, my plate is really full.” He’s got his foot into other projects including a cooking show, which he’s been working on for years, and other stuff.
We got into the writing process of the band. He’s pretty much the guy. “Yeah, you only need one idiot in the band like me.”
One of the most interesting things we talked about was what influences him now. He mentioned metal-core and specifically Bad Omens. “They’re really crafting stuff well and making songs interesting.”
We wrapped things up with Gavin giving props to the Detroit crowds. He loves playing here.
