Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale discussed haters, who were largely fans of Nirvana, trashing Bush in the 90’s for jumping on the Grunge bandwagon in a new Consequence of Sound interview.
“I think that it was pretty unfair, but so many great things have happened that it feels disingenuous to complain about a couple of writers in 1994 and their perspective. It’s just their perspective. You have to be a fully grown adult if you’re gonna put your head on the chopping block. You have to be able to take a few shots to survive. I took a lot of shots.
I was on tour with David Bowie, and I don’t like name dropping, but he’s a good one. I’ll suspend that for him. And I got another the sh*tty review somewhere, and I was like, ‘F*ck this guy, f*ck him.’ And I said [to Bowie], ‘How do you cope with it?’ and he said, ‘Outlive your critic.'”
Rossdale recently wrote on Instagram, “Straight from the heart I got nothing left no artifice no construction no obstruction just the wide open road of possibilities and mindsets – I know what I choose – liberty strength loyalty individuality grace kindness power understanding empathy sexuality self expression fireworks and daydreams 🖤. #dreams #music #likemindedpeople #rock #guitar #concerts #summer #brain #existentialism #passion #love.”
