BUSH Frontman Loses Rhythm Section

BUSH frontman Gavin Rossdale is no longer working with guitarist Chris Traynor (HELMET, BUSH) and drummer Charlie Walker (CHAMBERLAIN, NEW END ORIGINAL) on his debut solo album, the singer has revealed in his latest online posting.

The split with Traynor and Walker was "very unexpected," according to Rossdale. "It threw me for a couple of days as I was like, 'Damn, when am I gonna make this record. It put me out of shape. But now I am good. I have got my guitarist and a new drummer. Cache (Tolman, RIVAL SCHOOLS) is still playing bass. You will be serially excited when I tell you who it is. I am holding back until we really get into it. So far he has worked on one track. And he rocks.

"In ten days we start rehearsals. Then Christmas, plus I have my time on [the upcoming movie] 'Constantine'. So the record is delayed until January but it kind of works especially with the personnel change.

"I was expecting to have finished the record by Christmas and instead we start afterwards, but hey — there you go. You will hear what I have been doing and there will be a record.

"I will reveal all as soon as it is cool and we, as a band, are settled.

"For the record, Chris has rejoined HELMET. [HELMET frontman] Page [Hamilton] will still produce the record. All band members will be in L.A. The Brooklyn thing is gone. That may be a good thing.

"Everything is for a reason. A door closes and a window opens. The right one. And we breathe in the air."
