Rock Sound Interview: Gavin Rossdale

Ex-Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale is due for a return on June 9 with his debut solo album ‘WANDERlust’ through Interscope. Rock Sound talks paparazzi, Bush, Gwen Stefani and more…

Why do you sound so agitated on the album when you probably don’t have too much to be agitated about?

“I’m only really interested in conflict and real life. Everyone’s life is complicated I think, and while songs like ‘Frontline’ – which is about the war – is very far from my reality, it still affects me and I still think about it.”

How do you feel about the bad press Bush used to get in the UK?

“It wasn’t all bad, but you couldn’t take it seriously because it was so extreme. You can’t really sell 1.5 million records and be the critics favourite. I think people who were afraid to not be a part of the gang who criticised me wrote a lot of it. When you see the same thing written again and again it just seems weak because it’s clearly not an original thought. There were a lot more people who liked me than critics who didn’t and I’d rather have that than have Everett True think I was the dog’s bollocks.”

How did you deal with it at the time?

“Some of the criticism made me more combative. I went through a phase of phoning people up and having a go at them, but I never wanted to be one of those people that gets a bit of success and then gets upset because the critics hate me. It’s like, ‘Shut up, you’ve got a great life, just deal with it.’”

How do you deal with life in the public eye and being known mainly for being Gwen Stefani’s husband?

“It can get frustrating being hounded by that culture and not being seen to work, but the solo album is already creating a buzz so hopefully that’ll change. People have started writing to me saying it’s good to hear me making music again and I’m like, ‘I never stopped!’”

How does it affect you personally?

“It’s hard to do normal things with your kid when there are seven photographers at your door. My mum likes some of those pictures though! She always says things like, ‘Well it’s nice to see you looking so well!’”

Have you ever lost your cool with any of those paparazzi types?

“You can’t do anything about it, so it would be an empty fight. ‘Pissing into the wind’ is the phrase I think! You just have to accept that if you have a privileged life no-one wants to hear you complain. Plus, Gwen doesn’t like it if I get a bit aggressive or say something, even if I’m defending her. Now that I have a son there’s another incentive to keep calm.”

Do you and Gwen ever give each other musical advice?

“Inevitably, we hear every song we do from the demo stage to the end. I just try and be supportive and say nice things or nothing at all as you do with anyone you care about. The thing with Gwen is that she doesn’t really like rock music. I’ll put on something like Fugazi and I’ll be swimming in a sea of ecstasy, but she’ll say something like, ‘Oh my God, put the reggae back on.’ Our paths meet somewhere in Jamaica but that’s about it.”

British rocker Gavin Rossdale reveals what keeps his marriage with Gwen Stefani special

May 24 2008 By John Dingwall

ROCKER Gavin Rossdale thinks Gwen Stefani is the perfect wife because she transforms herself into four dream women every week.

The former Bush frontman says Gwen's stunning image changes keeps their relationship fresh.

And as he relaxed at their home in Los Angeles, Gavin, 40, told me he is convinced his marriage to Hollaback Girl star Gwen will last a lifetime despite the 80 per cent divorce rate in the City of Angels.

Gavin said: "The churches should have revolving doors. Even my family have all been married three times each.

"So I always thought, if I was going to get married, I wouldn't mind if I could hack it with someone I really like.

"We enjoy spending time together and Gwen always looks so great. It's like four different women a week coming out of the dressing room. It is fantastic."

Gavin, a Londoner whose middle name is McGregor, also revealed the couple have painted their nursery black, ready for the birth of their second child, who will be a little brother or sister to toddler Kingston.

Despite reports to the contrary, Gavin insisted: "We don't know if it's a boy or a girl.

"We're into the surprise element. Plus we are going to put him in a black room.

"He'll be a goth baby so it doesn't matter if it is a girl or a boy.

"Gwen is doing fantastic. She had a bit of arough start to the pregnancy but is doing great now."

Having attended the birth of Kingston, Gavin says he wouldn't dare miss out this time.

"Whatever I can do to help, I'll do, but the guys get off light," he said. "We get to have the fun, then nip off, and the girls have to carry the physical burden of making a human, which is phenomenal.

"It's more than my life's worth to miss the births of my children. I'd be dodging plates, and frying pans would be flying past my head. I want to be around and supportive and helpful. The first birth was so overwhelming.

"Every day, I am more crazy about Kingston. He'll do something and all over again I can't believe how magic he is.

"This time, I feel a lot more confident. First time around, I hadn't even held a baby for more than three minutes prior to Kingston being born. I didn't even know how to burp him.

"When Kingston was born, the World Cup and Wimbledon were on and, because I was in LA, the matches were at five in the morning.

"So I could wake up and tell Gwen I would take him and that she should get some rest. Then I could sit with him and watch some matches. It was the most thoughtful birth ever."

Meanwhile, Gavin admits he is still coming to terms with the revelation that he is the father of 19-year-old It girl Daisy Lowe.

The rocker had a fling with former Powder singer turned fashion designer Pearl Lowe, while she was living with traveller Bronner Handwerger.

Daisy, who recently replaced Kate Moss as the face of Agent Provocateur lingerie and who is dating Mark Ronson, thought Bronner was her dad until 2004.

It was around that time that reformed drug addict Pearl, who led a hedonistic lifestyle and hung out with Kate Moss, Sadie Frost and Patsy Kensit, demanded Gavin take a DNA paternity test, which proved positive.

In her memoirs, All That Glitters, Pearl, who has three kids to Supergrass rocker Danny Goffey, accused Gavin of trying to dodge the test.

But he won't criticise Pearl and insists he wants to build a relationship with Daisy, who had thought he was her godfather.

"It's not easy," he replied when I asked if he was coming to terms with the very public outing as Daisy's dad. "It's one of those things," he said. "It's life. I had to deal with it, which was unfortunate for Gwen and I because we are private people.

"I didn't want to run and hide. Someone has to take the high ground, not be so attention-grabbing about it and just wait for it all to calm down. But I suppose Pearl and I are polar opposites.

"The relationship with Daisy will be there. It will be lovely when it's not so career-oriented.

"It's not private, but it should be an incredibly private thing between the people involved, yet it gets commented on every day of my life.

"I am the private guy in all this, but Daisy is an incredibly smart and beautiful girl. Things will work themselves out."

Gavin, who has a Scottish mum and English dad, says his turbulent private life has given him much-needed ammunition for his first solo album.

He hopes it will be his most successful record since the mid-Nineties when Bush became the biggest British band in the US.

Their 1994 album Sixteen Stone sold 10 million copies there. But the band split in 2002 and Gavin's subsequent band, Institute, released one album which flopped.

He compares that period to David Bowie's unpopular spell with Tin Machine.

Now he is back with the album Wanderlust, out mid-June.

Gavin said: "The reaction to it is pretty phenomenal, so I am blown away. After Institute, I removed all expectations and thought, 'Let's go down in flames.' "I had this incredible career with Bush, then formed Institute and made this really heavy record to get it out of my system.

"Then I thought, 'Who took the girls away? I want the girls.' So I decided to make a record that could be played any time of the day.

"Having children, you just want to be good for them and inspiring. I think Kingston may even enjoy Institute."

Recording his new album with producer Bob Rock on the Hawaiian island of Maui also gave him a brief holiday from changing Kingston's nappies and playing house husband.

"It made me want to get home quicker from the studio and other times it made me want to run to the studio," he said.

"I felt defiant.

"I have always tried to do my best and connect with what I am thinking and feeling.

"I've always tried to be personal. There are some incredibly vulnerable moments and songs throughout my career.

"Sometimes I had a big blustery sound but it was usually self-obsessive. I've always tried to be the real me."

'It's more than my life's worth to miss the births of my kids. I'd be dodging plates and frying pans'

Posted by GMR on 5/24/2008

hello and big up to you.
my last weekend in la before the some of you may know,it's a big day on monday so here's hoping the weather holds so that we can have some serious fun outside.
i just got back from breakfast and a visit to culver city for some errands.
a ton of photographers today for some reason.such an unsubtle way to travel.
the police came to help out-sirens and everything-but there's nothing to be done-
it's useless madness.
i noticed across town some posters for the record.which is ironic.i have always loved posters and every single record i have ever done,i have asked for them-and never got them.
i love seeing who has records out you sit at traffic lights and whatever,and so now in this current climate,i didn't even bother asking-and there they are.
is there a lesson in that?
i see weezer has a new record too.nice.
i went to amoeba records the other day and stocked up good and proper.long overdue.
i'm listening to nick cave and the bad seeds as i write this.
top form.
there's a song called moonland on this new record,with the excellent lyric-
"i'm not your favourite lover"
wicked.that man's on fire.
also finally got portishead-dark and darker.
also....calla,eno/cale-wrong way up,justice,goldfrapp,the klf(gotta have a copy here),bonnie prince billy,cat power,frank black(i lost my other cult of ray)grinderman,ashes divide(c'mon billy)jack johnson so i can catch up,cornelius,autechre as it is out of print ,ellen allien,death cab,and that's about it.
i love checking the artwork.
listening to the record as it was intended and reading along.
that's the way i like to do it.
it's how we want you to do it-
will you try?
i see that tim noble and sue webster did the neon sign for the cover of the bad seeds.
i like those guys a lot,they used to do those crazy piles of rubbish that when illuminated,created these sharp focus sculptures of them both against the wall.
check them out.
i have a ton to listen to.
better wake the neighbours.
or help them,i wonder what people around here listen to.....
anyhow,man utd have won everything-
the lakers are winning(i know very little about basketball)
and the sun is trying to come out.
come on.
just a little more.
and hang around some time

Gavin Dishes on Gwen and New Album!

21 May 2008 Exclusive!
Former Bush frontman, Gavin Rossdale, aka Mr Gwen Stefani, has released his first solo album and he told our US correspondent about his expectations and what it's like playing second banana to his wife Gwen!

"The last album did so badly that I don't feel any pressure about this one," he said at his management office in Los Angeles last week. His latest album Wanderlust is the first since the demise of his previous band, 'Institute'.

The self-deprecating rock star jokes about his last record with Institute. "Well, we only had four fans. At least they were the members of U2, so maybe altogether we had eight fans!"

Rossdale doesn't mind that his wife Gwen is a bigger rock star than he is.

"I love that Gwen is an independent girl who goes and does her thing," says Gavin.

"She's obviously not the same person at home as she is publicly but I'm a very secure guy. I have to tell you, as a man, it takes a lot of power not to be intimidated by that kind of success. But for me, I just wouldn't succumb to that kind of emasculating vulnerability."

Meanwhile, the first single off Wanderlust, 'Love Remains the Same', is about.... who else? "It's a celebration of my love for Gwen. What can I say? I'm a bit of a sucker."!

Gavin Rossdale post to his fans on the official web site-bright and bleary eyed

so,i've been up late.the studio is buzzing.just how we like it at
kingston sound

always stuff to do.
last night

i got the mixes for the i-tunes tracks we did at the palms studio in vegas.

maybe a couple of changes but
i think the 6 songs came out well,an acoustic ep with some tripped out guitar.
and some atmospherics,a pretty chilled out selection.
and now here i am,doing super early radio interviews.everyone is so awake.
and i'm playing catch up.
i'm feeling good but all this talking about myself is weird.
and the fact that this is a solo record and not a bush record is dawning on me.

why have i been ignoring that?

i have really just been going with the flow,and now in the midst of these interviews,
being asked if it is weird to be alone,i am realising it is.
but here i am-i need coffee,heavy eyes,light heart-and enjoying the record countdown.
in the next few weeks,there will be an onslaught of STUFF from me.

i like that.

today is quite full of interviews and i think the last one of the morning shows.then the international ones start,then i go to m management offices to meet some journalists in person,and do some on camera tallking.

ever see yourself on camera and you freak yourself out and want yourself to shut up half the time.
sound familiar?

give great day

good evening-

hope you're good.
before i drone on about my week for you,i have to mention the cyclone in burma and the earthquake in china.
terrible terrible times,millions of displaced people,thousands of lives lost-
make sure you turn to what you have tonight and take it all in.

now it seems irrelevant to write about myself but i figure these notes to be snapshots into my time and some thoughts....

so here goes and please forgive my trite details having presented the above links.
i guess i'm just reaching out to you to let you know what we've been doing.

monday we played a small acoustic show for 98.7
which was liberating and strangely nerve wracking.
but the audience was intimate and i think it turned out ok.
hope you hear it sometime.
it was good to be singing and playing for an audience.

we did a yahoo session yesterday,and a tv show today(unnamed)as it's not out yet.
which was a total pleasure.
piece by piece we build a bridge to you.
and tomorrow aol.another stripped down session.
i'm working on some music now,a bush song in particular i haven't done in a while.
it's liberating and makes me think of the boys in the band.

and all the good times.

you'll get to hear the fruits of these labours very soon.
the record is edging closer daily.

i had planned to write a longer note to you,however by starting the note with the reports from burma and china,it doesn't feel right.

so i'd better go and allow this moment to be about what it should.

take care -and if you can't take care -take cover

And that was the topic of a recent interview.Rossdale told press, “There are some names floating around the house.
