Gavin and Gwen: Too Late To Appreciate?
Huffington Post - 19 days
Gavin Rossdale discussed his much-publicized divorce from Gwen Stefani in a recent interview, saying it was the opposite of what he wanted and that divorce is "one of the hardest, most painful things to go through." He also lamented the loss of her "unconditional love" for him. These sentiments may come as a surprise to people given that Gavin had a three-year affair with the family's nanny, which is what led to their divorce. It raises the question, why would someone have these regrets so long after the indiscretions that tore his marriage apart? Perhaps it's the age-old saying that you don't know what you have until it's gone. The truth is, many times people may not value their partner until they are separated and can finally recognize all the love they had, which is now lost. Marriage is a slippery slope. There are so many moments in any given day during which your partner might do something to irritate you, or you them. It can be something small, like forgetting to take out the g ...

    More Details Hide Details The band changed its name to Bush in the summer of 1994 and released the promo Sixteen Stone. Rossdale has been the lead singer/songwriter for the British post-grunge rock band Bush since its inception. Their first album, Sixteen Stone (1994), was a huge commercial success. Almost overnight, Bush went from playing small pubs in London to headlining arenas in the US, the result of extensive, non-stop touring. However, some critics labelled them as an inferior derivative of bands such as Nirvana and Pixies, and this criticism followed them throughout their career as a band. In particular, Rossdale's forced, raspy singing voice and random, stream of consciousness-style lyrics were dismissed by some as an imitation of Nirvana's lead singer, Kurt Cobain. Although the band reached superstar status in the US, they failed to have much impact in the UK, which at the time was preoccupied with Britpop. The sole exception to this was their single "Swallowed", which reached Number 7 on the UK charts.
