GAVIN ROSSDALE Says Chances Of BUSH Reforming Are 'Quite High' recently conducted an interview with former BUSH frontman Gavin Rossdale. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below. So on this album ["Wanderlust"] you worked with Bob Rock, who has produced METALLICA. Were you easier to work with than METALLICA?

Gavin: I worked longer hours, that's for sure. And no therapy sessions. But every morning when I'd come in, Bob would be like, "How are you doing?" And I'd say, "I'm doing fine." And he'd say, "No, really, how are you doing? Are you OK?" "Yes, I'm fine, Bob, leave me alone." After two years of therapy with METALLICA, he couldn't help it. You've been in some movies over the years, including "Constantine" and last year's "How To Rob a Bank". Why do you always end up playing the bad guy?

Gavin: Probably because that's how I'm seen. Probably because I've got the British accent. I usually get killed as well, so I'm usually dead and bad, or bad and then dead. So yeah, I've got to try and break out against the typecasting. But it's pretty good fun. Problem is, whenever I do films, all the gaffers and the electricians are like, "Hey, where's the record, man? What are you doing?" And I feel like a geek — I'm in a suit or something with a blown-off face. What are the chances of BUSH reforming?

Gavin: Quite high. "Wanderlust" was going to be a BUSH record for about two or three months. And then the guitar player, Nigel [Pulsford], who originally was the one who didn't want to tour anymore, suddenly didn't want to leave his family. I understand. I think he felt that he missed his daughter growing up the first few years. It would have been a great year for BUSH; it would have been a really good return. No one stole anyone's motorbike or wife, so it's always possible.
